Hi there - I am officially an IT Consultant, working with everyday operations in IT like servers, storage, network, application, 2nd and 3rd level support, and much more. My electronics abilities are mostly self-taught, but it has been my primary hobby for many years (20+), so if I do say myself, I know a lot of electronics that most ordinary folks know nothing about. I'm into digital logic, and microcontrollers, homemade PCB, 3d printing, and programming.
I often find myself repairing things for myself and others - sometimes it's easy just replacing some bad caps, other times it's a little more complicated, but with the right tools, and a good network, it can't be all bad.

I'm here because there's a shed full of faulty electronics gear I've got to either fix or bin.

hello my name is Robert. I'm new to this,so that being said, the most i know about electronics is to buy them from the store. but i cant see paying someone a fortune to fix my TV. I am mechanically inclined and work with cars and their electronic systems so this cant be much different. im not sure where to go to ask my questions so ill wait for some direction.

Hello, my name is Daniel and I joined this forum to learn about repairs because I'm a little bit more interested on designing and building things instead of fixing them. When you build something and in the future will need to be repaired it's better to plan ahead.

Hello from Wisconsin!!
I have next to no experience in electronics but willing to learn. I've built crossovers for speakers that I've built. Now I have a power supply on my sub that needs work. Sure I can spend the money and buy a replacement but I would rather find out what went wrong and how to fix it. Pretty excited about this new hobby!!

Greetings, my name's Mike, and I'm from Wakefield, QC. I got my first computer about 33 years ago. It was a Commodore 64C. Eventually, I got pretty sick of leaving it on and programming in BASIC for a few weeks, only to have the power trip, and loose half a month of typing, so I got a 1541 (5.25" disk drive.) Eventually, it started to act up, and I popped the case, reseated every chip that I could, and it worked! From there, it was my love of AMiGA's, dissection of piles of devices / neighbours computers (only to have them work again!) / even dabbling a bit in Ardrino's, PWM and stepper motors. (That uses a 5A 55VDC coil to power it, if you ever want to have an arm wrestle, don't do it with that!)

Certainly I'll attempt to contribute where I can, but like most, I came here because I have questions! All the best and all the rest, ~MM~

Happy to have joined this forum, Im actually getting the 7 flashes from my Panasonic Viera Plasma TV TH-58PZ850A, 2008 model, but I managed to clean out all the dust and cleaned all the fans with a can of compressed air and the TV is working again, On the Panasonic service manual it says the causes are the SU, SD or SC boards and fan related issues,

I managed to do some researched about changing parts on the TV and it looks pretty easy, (having built a few home PC) Ive managed to find all 5 main Components for my Plasma TV (SC, SU, SS, SD) all for less than $200 all tested and in working order the only thing I wasn't sure was the Power Board from the US being compatible with Australia, but the part Numbers are spot on.

Ive had my Plasma TV for 11 years now and this is the 1st problem its ever had also, Made in Japan, So for $300 bucks worth of parts its sure worth the price to save the TV just in case anything major happens I have the spare parts for it ready to go! I will eventually by Panasonic OLED, but I will keep my original plasma and use the spare parts to keep it going, still has a beautiful crystal clear picture, even better than the newer ones

Also I build my own PC and also into Vintage Stereo systems especially Marantz systems from the 70's and have a nice collection of components, hopefully by joining this forum I can learn and restore some of my marantz equipment... cheers

....

so what's your story ? come on.. give it up..
Hello world! (standard output from first computer program, right?)

I am a software developer and part-time electronics engineer/technician, programming computers at various levels and in various languages since about 1980 and working with electronics stuff about the same. This looks like a good place to share good information so here I am!

Thanks
