Hi, I'm a eletronic collector and repair technician from Brazil.
Honestly i'm here because i need help from the pros, but i will try my best to provide this place with useful information to repair nasty stuff. I am going deep into design flaws, trying to address the cause, i really hate when my TV doesn't work.

Hi guys. I am a retired electrical engineer and amateur radio operator. I've been playing around and fixing electronic stuff 55 years.

When something stops working, my wife is trained to say..."probably a bad capacitor". So, this seems like an appropriate group to belong to!

Following along I have no formal education in electronics but have enjoyed building and servicing PCs for many years. In the last couple of years I have been dabbling in repair of audio equipment, mostly CD/DVD players and receivers/amplifiers. It's a steep learning curve and I obviously need lots of help.
Tech support at ShopJimmy.com put me onto Badcaps so I am giving it a go.
Thanks.

Hi,

I'm just starting to have great fun repairing stuff ... have been working on quite a few bits of test gear (mostly bench multimeters), but have just got a TV with a backlight issue to have some fun with (although I need a bigger bench!)

Sadly all the caps look fine!

Lee.

Hi all

Very new to TV and console repairs.
I'm a fiddler at home and at work. I take great pleasure in resurrecting something that has been deemed dead.(non surgical of course).
I've already followed some of the guides within the forum and it's help heaps.

Please welcome me and be gentle.

Peta, ofcourse some advertising would always be helpful to making this a success.... This forum has existed since October 6th 2003, online the first time at about 9:00PM CST. Being a couple days old, atleast there's traffic...

I don't know if this forum will be a huge success or not, I created it out of requests from viewers, so we'll see how many actually join... If it takes off, I'll be tickled pink!! If it flops, I'll simply remove it.

A little about me?!?

HMMM I'll give a little info... I've been in the electronics field since 1991, with experience ranging from TV/VCR repair all the way to industrial electronics for a very large and well known manufacturer. I started in computers in 1994, just for a change and something I thought would be more challenging.... First of all, in the computer field, I AM NOT a number cruncher (programmer) YUK!!!!! I'm a hardware/network guy... I can install any OS, repair and make it work, but sitting and typing code is more boring than watching flies mate!! So I stick to hardware!! I get the 'thrill' from coming up with cures for problems, creative and USEFUL mods (this DOES NOT include neon lights and corny batman windows in my cases)...

Before the VP6 was around, Abit's poster child was the BP6, dual celeron board... Being one of the pioneers to run dual Coppermines in my BP6 was quite a thrill... Then came the VP6, and the dreaded crap cap problem... Thus was born PROJECT:VP6, which is over a year old... It can be viewed at www.kabalsrealm.com/systems/projects/vp6/. That single article ultimately led to badcaps.net and this forum... I was shocked at the publicity it drew...

A little inside info?!?
Well, age?! I'll say late 20's and that's close enough... I enjoy dealing with the computers, all of this is just a hobby these days, so if it did flop, it's no loss... I'm also a car nut... (300ZX!!!)... I also enjoy flying immencely, although, no I don't own an airplane... YET!!! Maybe if I sell off all this computer junk, I could afford one... HEH I own 3 domain names, and host sites for a few friends on this array... Of course they pay me nothing... HMMM Ohh well... Money isn't all... That's about all I think needs to be revealed... If there's something you really need to know about me, ask... The answer all depends on the question you asked...

Anyhow,
Peta, and everyone else that has joined, Welcome to the forums!! Bring some friends with ya!! :roll:
Greetings one and all. Been fixing stuff since 1977. I have an EET degree from Univ. of Maine at Orono. Hope to find like minds and repair shortcuts here. Have recently repaired several tv's. Got a monitor problem today. HELLO!

Hello guys!
My first post here.
I have decided to join your forum by this recommendation: https://forums.tomshardware.com/thre.../post-12561423

I'm just a hobbyist, coming from automotive industry (automotive electrician) but as my (limited) knowledge is most of the time obsolete comparing it with latest tech trends, and I don't have experience with AC, most of the time you will find me searching / learning by following the tutorials, reading forums and some e-books, looking videos and so on... I want to learn but I'm not following any program.

Hello badcaps! I just joined so I can view images and ask any potential questions I may have in the future.

I'm a hobbyist, able to create analog circuits from scratch (nothing involving ICs though), can use the Arduino for whatever I want, and repair electronics like hi-fi amplifiers, toys, computer PSUs, etc.

I have all the equipment I want, except oscilloscope, dedicated capacitor tester (for very small to very large caps like 0.1 to 30,000uf, 6.3 to 80V etc), active desoldering station, and a powerful adjustable power supply (0 to 50vDC, 0 to 5A, etc).
