Hello All,

New to forum. I am a hobbyist in electronics. No professional training but I have enough EE college level knowledge, albiet ancient by todays standards, to be dangerous I deal mainly with vintage audio gear which I prefer to pick up in non working state and repair at my leisure. I have some tools of the trade and I am here for the knowledge base. I prefer not to waste time discovering things that are common knowledge to other and am always pleased when someone whose has been there and done that helps out.

Looking forward to chatting with you all.

I just joined this forum. I worked as a trainer in a computer store in 1982 and I have been addicted ever since. I retired from a major auto manufacturer over twelve years ago where I was a technical instructor and a Field Engineer. I collect ancient computers with an addiction. Thus my interest in "bad caps" they've all got something wrong with them. I spend way too much time and money on my hobby. I prefer to sit back and listen to those who know how to do it rather than sound off showing my ignorance.

Hi,

My name is Mihai, I'm mechanical and electrical/automation engineer. I've started to "computers" back in 1980 with TIMEX80 (I think) having a Z80 processor, (1...4Mhz I think) and 16kB RAM... I did some electronics with discrete components, even I made one computer in 1986 (all on one board) from components (I had a unmounted board, and all components, one can be seen here http://www.old-computers.com/MUSEUM/...herboard_1.jpg), working on cassete-tape (external memory) and on analog TV for display. From 1994 to 2004 I own a little computer repair and service company.
I am here because my son bought from his first own money an Acer V3-571 laptop with i3 processor. After a while, it started to "not start" from time to time, but letting it at rest for few hours/days, it eventually boot. Now doesn't work anymore. I bought him others computers/laptops, but he continuous to try to start "his" laptop, to search ebay or similar for his MotherBoard. He found some, but for more than 150$, and that is too much for this old computer, but he keep trying to find a better deal (like 40-60$).
I want to help him, and I found you. It seems that you may have the knowledge to repair the source block on MB of this computer. I have experiences with bipolar transistors only, not mos-fet and no SMDs. I'd like to find a solution for him, to make him happy.

Hello,
My name is Dave. My first computer was an Atari 400 with a tape drive. Upgraded the membrane keyboard to real keys. I still have a couple 130 XE's. I've been in telecommunications long enough to retire. Grunt to Director of Engineering. Wife says I am unemployed and get a job.
I love to repair things. Going to get a carb rebuild kit for a David Bradley 360 chainsaw. Have the gas tank split open and will be cutting a gasket. Why the tank isn't a single unit is beyond me.

I am repairing a Samsung TV which brought me here. Looks like the t conn board.

Lots of good info here.
Thanks,
Dave

Hello,

My name is Chris and I have had the pleasure of troubleshooting and repairing industrial electronics down to the component level for the last 19 years. My family and friends make sure that there is no shortage of electronics for me to repair at home too, and I am happy to help them out.

I am here to admit being outsmarted (so far) by an Onkyo HT-R590 receiver and to ask for some help from some audio experts.

Thank you

Chris

Hello! New to the forum and this level of electronics repair in general. I'm an arcade game collector and find a need to deepen my knowledge of electronics to keep my games in working order and to fix things around the house! Currently perplexed by a Strider upright cab that keeps blowing its switching power supply and an Edgestar wine fridge where the left control board keeps blowing a fuse!!! Thanks in advance for any help you can provide :-)

Hi all,

I found this forum looking for repair information for my Panasonic plasma TV.

I have a master's degree in industrial instrumentation, and a few year's experience from product development in metering equipment.

I do occasional repairs of consumer electronics whenever some of my stuff breaks, but not often enough to be an expert in all types of failure modes. Hence why I'm here to learn.

Hello everyone,

In the last few years, I've found help in this forum just by googling or using the search function. However it is time to finally register as I have two motherboards that aren't working properly and I cant figure out why.
