Hello everyone, Im from Germany and had my first experiences with an Atari 800XL in 1984 and from the beginning I did small modifications (e.g. switch to bypass the Basic on boot...).

Now the circuits are a little bit more complex and my knowledge is not growing as fast as the technologies... so I hope I can find sometimes help here...

Happy to join this community

Hello everyone, I'm from the great state of Kentucky. I joined this site to become more educated about electronics and hopefully figure out what went wrong with my LG plasma. From what I've seen this is the place for that.

Default Hi There From Maine

Well, I have been dabbling in electronics for a couple of years now. Self taught I fumble around sometimes but I am getting better. This all started with purchasing some ancient audio equipment to listen to music on and took off from there. I have a couple of flat screens I am trying to fix now so thought I would join up after reading a post regarding a repair that was the same model as one of mine.

Hi everyone, dropping by to introduce myself. I'm a PC enthusiast in my early 20s, studying IT. I'm starting to dabble in some hardware stuff with RasPi and building own PC. Between school and work, I'd love to learn more about this stuff for DIY fun.

And if you wouldn't mind to keep this thread "clean" let's try to keep the the chitchat (i.e. even the welcome to the board replies) to a minimum or this thread may get to 100 pages fast

So I'll start things off :

My name is petabyte and I'm a forum junkie. :oops: I've been off the wagon for a number of years and countless times I've tried to stop but it's useless.. I need to feed my learning addiction.. :!:

Now just a bit about me.. I'm a fairly secretive guy in terms of privacy on the net.. especially when the things you write are visable to anyone with a net connection. But I love to share the info and knowledge I have, so that's why I'm here, to share and learn.

my formal education is that of an electronic engineer and I held a field service position with a firm for over 20 years.. that job is gone now along with company car and laptop <cry> oh well..
So needless to say (but i will) I've always tinkered with things.. yes, a hacker.. (too bad that term lost it's orignal meaning) a hardware hacker mostly.. hacking fixes in whatever I find that breaks.. (except for cars, I have friends for that) I got started a little late into the computers, my first box was an ibm pc-xt with a whopping 10meg HD,blazing fast 4.66mhz 8086 processor, 640k mem running dos 3.3.. man was I cool back then.. :roll: nevermind..

so these days, I'm forced to be a software guy as well.. as I fix pc's for friends and that usually means cleaning virus/trojan/adware and reinstalling OS's.. yeah hardware breaks but not that often :cry: so as a result, I keep up on my software knowledge by visting a few security forums.. and trolling around a few hardware forums as well.

now I found this place from a thread at motherboards.org/forums
where I've been hanging out lately.. it's a nice friendly place with some pretty smart people.. mostly, of course, it's about mobo's.. So this person mentioned badcaps.net and I recalled reading articles a year or so ago about the faulty caps and was curious as to what you guys were up to.. and I said "w00t.. they have a forum"..

and so now.. you're stuck with me :P



so what's your story ? come on.. give it up..
Hello, I'm so new at forums it took me forever to figure out how to post a comment. Anyway, I'm hear because I have a TV that I'm wondering if anyone can help me figure out how to fix it myself just for kicks.

Hi everyone,

I run a music studio / workshop in Scotland. I started with more general electronics repair - but more recently i got into micro-soldering repair. This seems like a wonderful community.

Hey, I'm Brandon. Been doing IT for years now, recently started doing some more board level stuff. This site has been a huge help tracking down Schematics and tips. When I first found this place I sent an IM to my coworkers with a link and a few of them have lurked here too. Outside of my day job I perform music at night
