I joined this because before I retired I worked as a repair tech at a capacitor manufacturer and need some assistance with some items I have never worked on before. Thanks in advance.

I am new to bulletin boards and forums. Now retired I have more time than money and enjoy repairing all things mechanical and electrical. Just getting started on flat screen tv and finding my 1970 degree in electronics technology will not take me very far. Please excuse any procedure errors as this is my first "forum" experience.

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 feel like I'm in school with the introductions. I've done computer work for years, been a contractor for cox cable and also do/have done a lot of handyman work. I've fixed a few tv's with bad caps, currently have 3 with other problems. So, working on educating myself further. I've found answers on this site previously, however need help with current project, so decided to sign up. I'm 46 and holding.

Hi
It's been a while since I signed up for the forum and although I'm just writing now, I want to thank everyone. Through this forum I acquired a lot of knowledge and managed to solve many cases of maintenance.
Thank you all.

Hello,
Found this site on a google search for life of electrolytic caps. I have a ton of old electrolytics I have collected over the last 35 years and wanted to see if I could "save" them (sounds like I can with reforming). I really don't trust the ones that come from overseas nowadays from the auction sites. I have original Spragues and Rubycons that are from the 80's and 90's that I want to keep using if I can and I think I found the place to discuss that.

take care
