Hello all, I'm Steve from fabulous Las Cruces NM, I'm tinkering with a Lenovo yoga 920 which apparently overheated and won't turn on now! What junk had it less than a year!

Hello! So, resistors almost always have 2 legs unless it is some sort of odd SIL resistor.. That sounds more like a surface mount Transistor or voltage regulator to me.

Do you want to post pictures and such, along with a description of the problem, in the TV repair forum. A very close up picture of the transistor would be helpful. To make the numbers on the face "pop" you can try putting a tiny dab of heat sink grease on it and then wipe it off. It will make the laser etching stand out more clearly..

New guy here. It's been 20 years since working as a repair technician (consumer electronics). But, since I've been seeing so many LCD tvs in the garbage everywhere lately, I thought it might be worth grabbing a decent looking one here or there. It looks like no one has them repaired anymore. Well, I'll be happy to repair them! Looking forward to utilizing your brains to accomplish this. Thanks everyone!

Hello! I am joining because I want to try to mend my TV. I studied electrical and electronic engineering at University, but then went into IT, so I have no real practical experience.

Hi, My name is Hector, Im from Puerto Rico. It looks like many of us started the same way as a hobby. My first computer was a Radio Shack trs80 COCO, 16k of ram. But a friend of mine upgraded my computer to 32k of ram for free. After that got a Commodore Vic 20, then a C64, then Amiga 500 then amiga 2000 and the Amiga 1200. I went to college for 3 years for an electronic school. worked a few years on some repair shops. I have been working as an industrial mechanic for the last 30 years. now I'm coming back to electronic repair as a hobby. hoping to learn a few new tricks.
