Hello everyone,
My name is Edwin, I live in the Netherlands near Eindhoven.
I am an engineer by profession, designing software and electronics.
I also have a hobby playing with radio, my call sign is PA2LVD.
I have been breaking and fixing things since I can walk, that is about 40 years...
My blog is www.hexnut.net.
I have taken on a challenge, to fix a TV that other people have not been able to fix.
I learned that expertise about these things is found in this forum, hence my presence here,
Best regards,
Edwin

Hello - I go way back to the 1980s where I was fixing TRS-80 computers and CollecoVision game controllers. Now I dabble with iPads and laptops.

Hi all.
I'm Brian, in the Pacific Northwest, I've been lurking this site off and on for years, the name got my attention; my first build was a Pentium 3 on one of the abit boards that were blowing caps like popcorn makers.
First computer I messed with was a Ti-994a that a teacher would bring to electronics club (yeah I'm that big of a geek) it was a + model with the internal cassette tape memory.
After that I used to spend afternoons in a radio shack by my grandmother's house banging away on a trs-80. Back then radio shack employees knew their stuff when it came to electronics and had no problem with some kid spending 5 hours a day, every day, learning BASIC in the store.
They had these books full of code for games, you just transcribed them. Then spent 20 hours troubleshooting the code. Then 5 minutes playing the stupid game, get bored, rinse, repeat.
I have been wrapped up of late building an stm32 based soldering iron station, just to, you know, round out my geek cred.
Then my (supposedly) high end xps13 took a dump, tracked it down to a Dell mystery meat component and need a schematic.
Low and behold, I ran back into BadCaps and figured I could use some geekly company, and, uh...yeah. Howdy!

Hey gang,

I live on the Boston area, and I am an amateur repairer of laser printers. I came across some with PS issues and I'm attempting some repairs. But it'll be my first time back to electronics since I gave up on making home stereos many years ago. I'll post some photos and project specs once my posting privelagea are enabled.


I came across this while doing research to repair a power supply.

Hello all.
It is a pleasure to be connected to such a helpful community! I have always seen myself as someone who fixes things, though my better half has reminded me, I really only collect broken electronics with the best intentions to fix them.
I'm going to try a bit harder, I swear! My Dell 3008WFP with its suspect BGA soldering, a Benchmark DAC1 that doesn't power on and the Arcam Alpha 9 amplifier that died the same day are all counting on my doing better this time.
Thanks for creating a community that is so inspiring and supportive of the right to repair.
k.

Hi everyone,

Just joined the forum as I'm getting back into component level repair. Been out of the business for a while, but I decided to get back into it as I love the challenge and buzz from repairing junk, then turning it into something useful.

I hope to contribute as much as I can.

All the best,

Paul.

Default Greetings from Sweden

Dear forum members!

I am a general dreamer and I tend to collect on projects that I would like to do, if there wasn't so many other things life needed of me. I usually think and search for information during an extended period of time before jumping into a project. I most often succeed, even though it takes quite some time before commencing.

What brought me to the forum was the amber light of doom from my NAD C320BEE and I found a nice thread with pictures in this forum. My intention is to post pictures from my NAD C320BEE and ask for help from you in terms of diagnosis and best approach on repair.

I work on different things, cars, electric toothbrushes, computers and mechanical stuff of unspecified origin. I would consider myself a happy newbie.

Thank you for letting me join the community!


Best regards,
Holm422
