Default Great to Find Badcaps!

Hello! My name is John, and I am a brand new member, and very happy to have found this. I hope this reply is what was expected. I ran across a post on the web addressing a repair (recap) of a Bose Wave Radio, which is exactly what I am into at the moment.

I have an education in Information Systems, but have always loved to have a hot iron on the bench. I lost my Dad last September, and he taught me all things electronic, and everything else... I am happy that just about anything I like to work on, reminds me of him. Growing up, we fixed everything, only throwing out something that was hopeless, even for parts. Part of that "curse" is perpetual object permanence, as in knowing that you always may be able to fix something, even if perhaps later! HA!

I love to collect and restore antique broadcast band radios, and prefer the myriad of '20s wooden delights. So much variety!

I'm also a General Class Amateur Radio Operator N4AJG and operate when I can. I am looking forward to contributing where I can, and learning from everyone else!

Blessings, John

If not forgive me, and move this to where it is appropriate.

Hello from Canada! I'm a general DIY/handyman/mister-fix-it type of guy who's family, friends and co-workers always call for help with anything. I suspect the same is true for many of you

I discovered this forum while troubleshooting a broken TV but looking forward to learning more from you guys and hopefully contributing where I can.

Cheers!

Hi All

I'm Will.

I've been working as an IT technician in the public (UK government) sector for the last 10 years or so.

I've got a Creative Gigaworks S750 speaker system which stopped working back in July 2016. I see a few folk on here have been making attempts to repair the own systems of the same model, so hoping to get a better idea of the likely cause(s) of the failure.

Hi all.
Not new to soldering irons but this is my first time at TV repair. Stumbled across this forum researching capacitor issues, you guys are amazing. I ordered the bits I think I need and have spent the waiting time reading everything I can on here.
BTW, I'm in UK and DIY tv repairs don't seem to be so popular here. But I'm a tight arse and reluctant to replace a 42" plasma for the sake of a couple of bad caps.
Thanks for all the info available.

Hello To all I write from Italy I have a small computer repair shop where I repair motherboards with a reballing machine and reprogram bios.
In fact I found you doing a search to reprogram the chip of a motherboard for imac 820-2494 that does not turn on Imac 21.
I will often come from here
dear greetings to all

Hi I'm Ray and I am a fix Aholic,I am working on a LG 42LV5400 side backlit tv.No sound or Pic. Getting only 36v to leds(there is a strip on right and left side)Power light changes from red to blue when button is depressed. From reading the legend on the main board voltages seem ok,standby and others.I disconnected the cables to the back lights to see if voltages would go up,but they stayed the same 36v. Pulled out led strip and put 9v to each one and they all lit up,heated up main board to attempt to possibly re solder a cold spot and hooked everything back up,still no backlights.I need to know what the voltage is supposed to be going to the leds,can not find anything for this model.
Not sure if I am doing this the right way of posting this here,but I never done this before,not even sure where to look for the reply,hope to find an answer on this electronic highway
