Hello all! I found this website when trying to repair a RCA television from 2013. I am really hoping to search the forum and get some help locating a specific firmware for a main board I replaced.

I too went this route! Honestly, I am one of those people that have the google fu to not need to ask questions most of the time. I have used badcaps off and on for the last 10 years I think. Finally decided I would give back a bit.

I am not sure how happy I am to find this forum as I have a VP6 with system freeze issues so I guess I will be replacing my mobo. I had been getting HDD failures as well, so I bought 2 new HDD to replace the RAID array with issues and the problem went away .... until I finished installing all my software, then another freeze.

Are there any thread around with lists of SAFE mobos that do not have cap issues? I am looking but have not found any yet.

Ideally I need a mobo with 4 ATA/100 channels so that I can attach the 5HDD and 2 Optical drives from my VP6 (raid or not I need the space).

Welcome any help.
Hiy

Lightbulb Re: New Members - I'm another one

Looks like I'm in good company. I've been fixing & repairing just about everything, ever since things have been breaking. It's fun to take things apart to see what makes them tick. I found this site while looking for info on repairing my Hyvision MV220 display. Looks like I'm not the first to experience issues with the CCFL backlighting. I haven't quite figured it out yet... Also, this is my first ever entry into a forum! Looking forward to sharing.
