A-Oh Electrotroubies 😬

At first I've to mention that this 'click HERE for a full outline of the site rules.' link in the PM isn't working but also I didn't research if this forum maybe has some issues with Safari so I can't tell who's to blame 🤷🏻😅

My electronics/technics/IT 'career' startet when my mom presented me a discarded C128D from her 'office' and shortly after that I also received my first electrical shock while digging around in that device when I had forgotten to disconnect it from main power but we've a saying here which should translate like this 'learning through pain'.

Since that time I came across many devices like arduinos and raspberry compatible boards, OpenWRT compatible routers and some modules like 3d printer controller which I used for a self build laser engraver.

ATM I work for a repair shop where we mainly assemble devices and do some software/recovery jobs but I'm absolutely interested in deeper repairs like mainboard troubleshooting and stuff.

I would not call my self a professional solderer but I would say I solder most parts with a reasonable result. Also I mostly understand the data sheets for given parts/IC's and have medium skills in schematic reading and how to use google

Unfortunately I've some problems with my attention-span and if I get bored or I get annoyed I tend to put things aside and devote myself another matter.
This is also because I don't know nobody who really can help me out if I have questions because my micro circle of acquaintances has other (trivial) areas of interest🙄

That why I'm here so lets see whats going on 🙋🏻

Hi everyone, Pete here, looking for some advice on troubleshooting and fixing a Samsung 46" TV that was gifted to me by the previous owner when I bought a new house a few months back. Seems like a useful thing to do being stuck inside for a while, thanks in advance for the help.

By default my language is Spanish, but in publications, by custom and with the help of a translator, I usually publish in English and Spanish.
Greetings to everyone

Talking Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Hello, I'm Brad. I became interested in electronics at a real young age (10-12yrs old), and that continued until I joined the USN in 1973 and became an intermediate service tech onboard the USS JFK, for the airborne radar system that sat in the nose of the Vought A7 Corsair attack aircraft. After 1 tour, I left the Navy, but continued working for DOD as a civilian at McClellan AFB in Sacramento. I became more interested in the software side and jumped into it when the opportunity presented itself.

So I retired after about 25 yrs as a software developer and now have been going over and trying to regain some of my hardware skills to recap & repair 5 dead vintage Infinity Servo controlled Subwoofers. All of them are between 27-32 years old so all the electrolytics need to be replaced, even in the functioning Subs I have. I have made an effort to find the highest quality audio Caps for the 2 Infinity SSW-212's (Elna Silmic's, Nichicon Super Through filters,...) but have had to resort to buying some NP's with unfamiliar brands. The bad caps list along with forum posts here, will help me avoid installing crap caps in my subs.

Default My 4 year old samsung un50ku6300fxza tv is stuck on boot loop at smart tv screen

Hi, Team thanks in advance.

My samsung UN50KU6300FXZA is stuck on boot loop at smart tv screen. Tred plugging in different power sources but still no luck.
ordered new motherboard for audio and video from shopjimmy and swapped it. but still the problem persists.

Need your guidance in fixing it.

this tv used to work like a champ until a week ago but It started having issues when I plugged it into a power socket extender along with ps4,ps3 and a sony soundbar,chromecast and my wifi router.

I know it's a mistake to plug in too many devices into one socket.
but please need your advice to fix this TV.
