Hello,
My name is John.
I just joined this forum after finding the part number for a MOSFET on my dead monitors power board.

I am an EE and like to work with my hands fixing electronics, wrenching on cars, and home remodeling. At work I design RF and mixed signal boards.

Hello to all and good and happy new year as well.
I used to do a lot of blogging but of late I have not.
I was drawn here with an issue I have with a bios password keeping me from one of my laptops, but have a feeling there is much more to interest me now that I have joined.
I am in central Florida, though from the north.
I have been a computer enthusiast since the days of the Coleco Adam and TRS 80. I fix my own everything. And I mean everything. I hope to offer a little as I seek a little.

Will is what most call me, some call me Bill and some William. As then came bronsen's Michael Parks used to say, Anything but too late for supper LOL..

Hi - Steve Pitt from San Jose, CA
Former HP and Agilent Tech employee now retired but love to tinker with various electronics including old computers, monitors, and most recently a very buggy LG 47 LG60 that has a constantly flickering screen and occasionally will just turn off and reset. Troubleshooting this was what brought me to your site and very nice forum. Thanks!

Just wanted to say Hi to all. I'm Les. Brainles, useles, moneyles, and many more that would take too long. My first computer was an IBM. Thought I was hot stuff cause every one I knew had an IBM compatible... Course, mine was like 15 years old... Worked at RadioShack when the COLOR computer came out. OOOOOOOO... Tried to be a ham operator for a while. Was eat up with antenna building and shooting skip. Got to be a network engineer for a while and build some PCs. That was fun. Now I just try to keep my stuff working cause I forgot most of what I learned. Anyway, I am 65 and retired in Maryland. Please allow me into your fold...

Hello everyone!!!,
I have a Sharp Aquos LC-60C8470U
I have had this tv roughly 6 years now.
For the last year it has had horizontal lines all covering the entirety of the screen, that are evenly spaced about 1/2 apart. They show up most visibly with a grey backround. They are not visible on white or black backround. They are steady, do not flicker or blink, and are constant.
The lines completely go away if i change the settings to AquoMotion 480, and come back when changed to 240 or standard 120hrz.
I would just live with this, except 480hrz setting is not as crisp or clear as 120 is, and colors are not as vibrant. Text is also harder to read on 480AquoMotion.
I will start a thread on this as soon as my new member restrictions are lifted.

Nate from Tacoma WA

Hello,

I have a plasma LG 42PA4500-UM that I am hoping to fix myself with some of your support! The original issue was No power on and no stand-by light; just an LED on the control board was blinking.

I ordered a new power supply board from a MN based shop and now the stand-by light is illuminated, but still no power-on

I need help with the next step diagnosis! Return the power supply board as defective??? or do I have another issue that needs repaired??

Needing Help in OH! thanks - Steve S.

New tinkerer here! I've started a hobby of picking up old TV's, usually for free or dirt cheap ($10-$20 tops) and trying to fix them. Sometimes I'm able to fix it for free, or for the cost of a few replacement caps, sometimes they require more $$ in the form of a whole new board. I then either sell them to friends/family for cheap, or flip them on Craiglist/OfferUp to generate some side income. Looking forward to learning and possibly help contribute whatever I can!
