Hey all,

I work for a public library and volunteer as a EMT-I with the local squad.My wife and me are big into cosplay and the maker movement so we are always tinkering with something and lately that something has involved magic electron goblins more and more. So this board has become a huge go to resource

Hi;
I'm new here around.
About me, I'm a actually a 3d technical drawer but somehow I got into repairing all kinds of electric stuff besides my actual work. Most of the stuff I repair is private, sometimes I repair for my company and sometimes for some friends... and sometimes repair fails horribly XD.
I get in alot of industry grade stuff, sometimes its working out of the box and sometimes its unrepairable for me.
I hope I can learn something here.
Thank you.

Well here goes nothing. I found this site via another forum I was digging through to find a fix for my Samsung 55 4K curved. Still no fix but getting closer each day (hopefully). My DIY repair days go back to when I was a child and helping my grandfather repair anything and everything he got his hands on. We would take a walk every morning that I stayed over at my grandparents house and bring back old lawnmowers and whatnot. We would spend the day repairing/cleaning them up just to get them workin again and put them to the curb for someone else to take home for free. We did it for fun. To give us something to do for the day. I realize this doesnt relate to electronics but its what gave me the fix it / not toss it bug. Ive worked on computers and electronics for as long as I can remember. Im by no means an expert but I feel like I have more knowledge and skill than the average person.

Beep.. Boop.. Just kidding, definitely not a bot.

I tinker with old PC hardware out of curiosity, sometimes that involves making some repairs.

Hi'yall!!
I'm 64 and they still love me!!

I do something that nobody around here in the SW suburban Chicago area does..component level repair. Most of my work consists of electronics musical instrument servicing and I'm a service center for quite a few of the MI Manf's out there. Been doing electronics work and design since I was about 12 (do the math!) and I still wake up every morning just to find out what I can learn that day.

I'm also a sound engineer as well as sound designer for several local theaters in the area. Do sound and video engineering through my own companies, Richards' Music & Electronics and RME Audio Video Inc.

I like to have fun and be challenged in what I do, and that makes it all interesting. Good to see so many other people doing the same thing here!!

Hi all!

My name is Nick and I've been a DIY-type person since I was old enough to care about money.

I'm a Computer Science major going to school on the GI Bill.

My electronics repair experience consists mostly of computers/laptops/TVs/etc. I've got more experience wrenching on cars/motorcycles, though. For instance: I've rebuilt my motorcycle engine/trans. The most complex electronics repairs have been mostly soldering jobs.

I've never paid for a TV. I acquire faulty ones that people throw out/give me and try and fix them. Worked well so far!


Just found this forum. Wish I had known about it years ago!

I signed up to gain access to pictures members submitted in this forum for removing the power plug connector in a DELL 2007WFPb.

This monitor just suddenly wouldn't turn on. The screen would just blank out and the green light in the power button would also disappear. I read that bad capacitors are usually the culprit so I proceeded to take the monitor apart. But I ran into difficulty with the power plug connector. I just couldn't figure out how to remove it from the shielding cage because without doing this I can't remove the power board to inspect the capacitors.

I now have access and can see how to remove the power plug connector. Thank you.
