I am also new to this Forum. I looked at several before joining this one and it was clear that the members here have the in-depth knowledge to trouble-shoot a variety of devices to the nth degree and resolve faults. I did electronics at University but did not practice it afterwards, instead moving into engineering software & design, subsequently into Project Management. I retired a few years back but often diagnose and resolve faults at home and for immediate family and I am always keen to expand my knowledge and be self-reliant. I look forward to learning from the wealth of expertise here.
Chris

Hi I am not sure if this is the right way to introduce myself I couldn't find a way to "post a new thread" button for this forum - so I am just using Quick Reply.

Anyway - nice to meet you all.

I'm having trouble with my Samsung Plasma TV, and tried a few things but have a new set of issues. Hoping to get some help in troubleshooting it.

Thank you all.

Hello All! Long time fiddler, wire crosser and sparky, First time poster.

It all started that fateful day when my AA Battery-powered Big Foot truck stopped lighting up and driving forward when I turned the thick plastic key attached to the bed of the toy truck. At age 6 I didn't know much, but I knew that little shaft thing in my dads silver box would take out those shiny circle thingies with the cross in the top. I also knew that tools fixed everything. I grabbed that pointy shaft thingie and off I went. Successfully having removed all circle shiny thingies, the top half of the truck easily separated from the bottom, revealing what i knew had to be the problem..... the colorfull stringimabobbers and the round silver cold thingie. I yanked all those colorful stringimabobbers and the two silver cold round tube-lookied whatzizts, and took it all out so they couldn't cause any more problems. Satisfjed that I had just done the most awesome cool thing a person could do, I quickly raced to get the truck put back together with the silver round cross-head thngies. I got it together, out it on the ground and yanked that key as quick as I could. You know what?! There was no noise!!!!! WOOHOO!!!! That meant didn't make anything worse! In fact, now I didn't have to worry about batteries because with those cold silver cylinder things gone, I could push the truck as much and as fast as I wanted to!

After that huge success, and 34 more years of random stuff, I've just started buying and repairing tvs which both fits nicely along with my car audio car audio as well as gaining me quick access to and visibility of lots of deals on tvs and lots of broken stuff to collect.

I'm a mechanical Automotive engineer by BS, and have worked in automotive and military developing the next generation of hybrid, electric and alternative energy vehicles. I can find my way around a board but am no expert so I look forward to learning from everyone in this group.

Thanks for having me!

Howdy,
I'm a computer hobbiest, sell computer on the side but have a hotel business in the caribean. Because I live in a salty environment I now have about 15 elitebooks of various models packed up with mobo issues, the latest being my wife's 2570p that sometimes comes on for two minutes but usually doesn't post and has the fan blowing like a gale. I'm here to find all the answers to my problems. Is that too much to ask?
Great, I'm off to find answers.

Hey, won't be going too deep into myself as I'd prefer to keep my identity private

I have a background in soft dev and electronics repair. My reason for joining is to obtain some hard to find (for free) macbook schematics and boardviews. That being said, I can see myself delving further into this forum as time goes on.

I look forward to my stay here and a big thank you to everyone that has shared a .pdf and .brd, much appreciated!
