Fixed it.

I'm all happy again now.
Can you tell us what was the uF, V, type (electro?), axial or single-ended, manufacture date, brand, and model (KR?) of the cap.

Well I got my batch of Caps from BadCaps.net for my Athion motherboard from ABit. I don't remembering having to register on the Forum before?
I have been in Electronics for 43 years. Had a 386 25 MHz IBM clone PC, running DOS 3.1. Then 486 DX, Athlon, and others, now using a AMD Phenom II X64 with Windows 10 with ASUS Solid State Caps.

I have a Tektronix 2235 that is needing new RIFA AC caps, and mains input filter caps, they are original, about 35 years old. I know being in an Electronics Technician they need to be replaced before using it.

Hello. I stumbled across this forum researching repair information for a Plasma TV. I get more enjoyment out of repairing used electronics than buying new electronics. Thank you for this helpful website.

Smile Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Hi, I am erictech7, have about 7 years computer tech experience, installing software and hardware, updates, mass installs of OS's. We went from 286's to Pentium 3's in that time.

I was a tech in the Navy, and now I dabble with electronics, relearning all the stuff I forgot in about 20 years.

My first computer was a Christmas present in junior highschool, a Timex Sinclair, but I was not much into programming.

Then I learned how to use Excel on a Tandy 1000, I believe it was.

Then in the Navy I used DOS 3.5 on an ancient machine for doing ocean temps and environmental data.
While in the Navy I bought a Gateway 2000 Pentium 2 and I had to learn how to fix it. I became pretty proficient at it, formatting, partitioning, even installing linux distros.

So now I am back to electronics again.

Right now I am learning how to test and observe how individual components act and look on an oscilloscope, how to set up test equipment so I don't accidently short my scope and destroy it.

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,

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!
