Hi all no harm done if the internet knows a bit about me.

My name is Deyan and I am 28 y/o. I am working as a repair technician fixing a broad range of devices but during the past year, I've started doing Macbook board level repairs. Recently I've decided to start a side hustle fixing anything I know I can or can't but would give me experience.

First post, intro . I'm a 60 something self employed HVAC contractor who likes to putter with electronics, from a crystal radio in the '60's to a complete Heathkit stereo component sound system in the early 80's. Find it to be very rewarding to fix something and save it from the landfill ( I also find it therapeutic ) Found this site on the net as a great resource and looking forward to finding a bit of help from time to time.

Hey all! Glad to be here, long time lurker first time poster. The information I have have garnered from this site has been invaluable and I appreciate all you folks that help people out with their troubleshooting issues. I recently acquired a Sony 55" 4k TV that has horizontal line issues that I would like some advice on so I figured that is as good a reason as any to finally come out of the shadows and join up.

That said, I'm a Mechanical Engineer in the Vegas area that specializes in the design, development, prototyping, and manufacturing of industrial CNC equipment such as CO2/Yag/fiber lasers, large format routers/mills, and large format 3d printers. I have experience in PCB design and troubleshooting electronics in general but it's definitely on the weaker side of my skill set as I tend to enjoy the mechanical side of engineering.

There seems to be some very intelligent people in this community and I am one of those guys that just loves knowledge and learning in general. I look forward to learning from you all and hope that I can contribute some of my knowledge as well.

My background is zx spectrum and old PCs to current day. Always overclocking / water cooling PCs, and with the help of my dad who is heavily into electronics we've done some motherboard mods for voltage regulation, vmods etc.

At the moment I'm after some advice on faulty TVs.

Just found your forum and really grateful for it! I have a 3 year-old Sharp lcd that died suddenly and the troubleshooting advice I have found here is invaluable.

Thank you!

Hello people,

This might seem weird to the admin, I've been in the computer world since the early 90's, but a late bloomer to electronics and landed on this site while trying to fix my Proscan TV.

I guess I'm the perfect example of never being to late to learn. Oh, BTW, I'm in my late 50's.

I'm sure I'll learn a few (A LOT) of tricks!

Introduction
Basic electrical and electronic training courtesy of Uncle Sam's Canoe Club back in the 80's and been exposed in one way or another since. I currently find myself looking at seven flat screen tv sets in a friends shop. Of course I said hey, I can help clear this area out. Best intentions and all, no good deed, etc. Anyway, Mr. Murphy being the eternal optimist that he is has truly blessed me. Well at this point I am just absorbing information and it is like drinking through a fire hose. I need to slow the flow to something specific to my current dilemma.
