Just doin' my bit to help recycling...

A lifelong 'jack of all trades...master of none', my experience in computers and other electronic wizardry is based on an unusual desire to strip stuff down, repair and (hopefully) rebuild - with no screws left over...
Can build PC's, own many consoles and home computers (both current and older) and enjoy introducing my grand-kids into gaming from the past.
Am currently trying to breath life back into my Sony 4K t.v. - this certainly is a very good site for knowledge and experience and I am glad to have joined.

Hello
I am a French computer scientist, but I happen to perform troubleshooting TV or other as a hobby.
Having seen that this forum was full of very interesting information, I would like to ask you. My first request for help will be for a Toshiba TV that flashes green / red
You will want to forgive my level of English which is far from excellent.
Thank you all for your help
Best regards
Jérôme.

Hello everyone my name is Steve from southwest Missouri. I recently had an issue with my Samsung plasma TV that I hear may be relatively easy to fix, but I'm not the kind of person to throw parts at something to try and fix it. Unfortunately I've never really done any electronics troubleshooting. I have limited tools for these types of repairs but that's never stopped me from getting what I need and giving things a try. I tend to learn best in a hands-on way and I hope I can gain the knowledge I need here to see if I can't get this thing fixed up! Thanks and will see you in the forums!

Hi my name is damo and I am new to this forum obviously.
My first system I can remember building with my dad was a 386 PC it did not have a HDD we had to boot from a 5 1/4 inch floppy disk in to dos 3.3 are those were the days so much simpler. I now work in IT within the DC industry and I have long wanted to get in to component level repairs.
I am starting with a Dell 3008wft monitor and I found an article on this forum hence I joined. I would welcome any help on diagnosing power supply issues as I am a beginner at component level repair. I did read some other articles on the web one of which stated that my problem was usually related to a diode on the power supply so I have removed the power supply and purchased a replacement diode then it dawned on me how do I know this will fix my problem is there a way to test diode before I replace it? Also should note I am located in Australia with 240VAC any help anyone can provide it welcomed.

Hello

I'm just a curious breaker of technology looking for a way to save some money by fixing my mistakes, rather than binning them! Predominately responsible for breaking motherboard bios' by flashing the wrong type!

I'm Tom and I've been playing with/working with electronics since sorting resistors for my dad while he built a 25" color Heatkit television back in the 1970's.

Latest project is a "gifted" 50" samsung plasma with display issues. Hoping to find pointers to get the red haze picture cleared out.

Read post #1, and post #2, skipped a few to page 927.

TBH I originally joined just to download a MBA EFI dump from: https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?t=63631

I haven't found another forum to replace those I belonged to that once were great but vanished overnight like castles made of sand too close to the shore.

I go by 0E800 and I drink Olde English 800 malt liquor.

My interested are information security, general IT, and fatherhood. (got a 5 year old)

I host Keys & Daggers [keys-daggers.org] a private (by-word-of-mouth) Flarum forum site dedicated to information security and providing *Promotional* software.

I aspire to be an active member on this forum and really appreciate the content and community here. Ill lurk some and try to get in where I fit in.

Be well.

Hello,

So for my introduction. I've snooped around here for a few years now to assist in some tv issues that I've come across over time. I used to repair combat systems on Navy submarines, and then spent time in local amusements facilities repairing games down to component level circuit repairs. Now with a welding job that pays much more, I tinker with electronics repair for side money. This site has been extremely helpful over the years with the vast technical expertise and decided to finally join in.

I have a DPS-162kp that puts put only 82 volts to each of the four LED outputs. The PS not drive the two strips of 68 LEDS. Standby is present on pin 15 of PD and 13v is present on Q7120. I am under the impression that LEDS need 100vdc to drive the LEDS. Any help? Thanks
