Hi everyone,

My name's Jonathan and I repair consoles as a hobby - I've recently decided to get a little more serious, and take on cheap, older generation PS3s and X360s suffering issues, hence joining BadCaps.

Let the adventures begin!

Hello, New member with a list of things to fix including a 70" sharp aquos, a toshiba laptop, a fridgidaire ice maker, a Honda Civic AC where mice completely ate the soy based insulation plus copper wire. I began with a Motorola 6800 hex keypad micro, an AMI 6800 motherboard with 16k memory and tiny basic, then stepped up to a Commodore VIC 20, C64, then an 8080 CP/M Bigboard soldered as a kit (dual 8" floppy drives!). Hope to learn from and add to some conversations.

Hello!

I'm a newbie in electronics, but I'm highly looking forward to learning and becoming better and better. At the moment of me posting this, I'm still in school, High School to be more precise. It all started this year in July, when a Gigabyte LGA 1156 Motherboard refused to power on anymore, all the buttons on the case being completely functional. So, I tried forcing it to power on, by shorting 2 Ground Pins on the PSU, but that didn't give me any results, other than the fact that the Motherboard has a bigger problem than a not working Power On Circuit. So, because of lack of schematics and Thermal Cameras I gave up on the Motherboard, temporarily mind you.

Now, for the last two days I've been working on an Asus X54H (K54LY MoBo) with a left click button broken. Because of my bad soldering skills and a soldering iron that heats up too much, I ended up with two of the copper pads on the tip of the iron and then in the cup of colophony. And, again, because I have no good schematic for the MoBo, I cannot find out where the signals for the left click are coming from and I'm stuck with a laptop without a left click button. Sad… I am aware that there is a PDF file in a thread here, but the images are very low quality and the schematic is lacking a lot of info, especially that less important info I would need: TouchPad buttons.

So, let's hope I can find a way to advance in electronics, soldering and fixing and I'm looking forward to posting questions and answers on this forum!

Hello to all, long time reader (and fan), freshly new registered member. I found the information in these forums valuable and looking forward to paying it forward. I'm mostly a systems architect and programmer but have been dabbling in electronics these past few years. On the table now is a sick LG 42LV5400 - looking forward to diagnosing / getting it back up and running again.

Hi, I've repaired white goods and many other things for some years as part of my employment, both electrically and mechanically. Superficially delved into electronic fault finding and repairs over the years, mostly unsuccessfully, prompted to have a much more serious attempt at understanding and repairing equipment following the demise of a laptop and a smps in a desktop. Been studying smps circuits and fault finding methodology, and found myself here...

Hi all.

Name is Steve.

Been into all things mechanical for years, also electronics but on a smaller scale.

Have done plenty of repairs to electronic items, but not down to the IC level. This is my next venture, understanding more complex stuff like circuit boards and those damn smd's.

Hate throwing stuff away and believe if it can be repaired (economically) then it should. Far too much stuff is thrown away these days.

Steve.

Hi All,

Have used the info found on this forum a few times now and it has been a great help. Looking for guidance on a TV I am trying to save before throwing it out.

Thanks!

Hello all....I'm Mag55.
Just a regular 40 something guy that most people are surprised to hear me talk about electronics and repair. I'm not much into software or programming, but would like to find the time to try programming. I live in the Northeast US, and like to find electronic projects and repairs for an inside activity.

Just lately I've had a lot more time to repair or build electronics, due to an unfortunate work injury that has left me partially disabled and unable to work for the last 4 years. My electronics work is now much slower vs a few years ago, but I still get the job done.

My name is Dave, ended up here after Paul Daniels mentioned this site on one of his latest YouTube videos, I am a bit of a follower of those videos and have learnt a lot from them.

My background is working in North Devon, UK as a IT and Sign Making guy, have now moved on to and deliver the post (part time) and do electrical related projects like VCR, Retro Computers/Consoles, Hi-Fi etc. So basically I done many things over the years and electronics is something I did breifly in the past (with Amateur Radio) and have recently caught up with it. Lets hope this forum is useful to me. Regards Dave

Hello, I was a member long time back under the Lonewolf Nick but it's been so long now I don't even remember what Email I used back then.

I'm a retired electronics field engineer with strong mechanical background, mostly in military weapons systems testing.

just here to look for information on the Sharp LC-70LE847U

Thanx for the Registration
