Hello from Florida!
There is nothing like having a $1000 device made inoperable due to a 40 cent part failing, except of course when that 40 cent part causes a cascade of voltage surges and over current events that damage dozens of other parts...

Greetings, My name is SpookyZalost.

I'm a tinkerer/Retro electronics restoring/modding sort who likes to tinker and build stuff, often improving on it.

I currently live in colorado, and I'm familiar with hardware in a general sense but have been getting into more and more in depth looks at stuff as time goes on.

Hello everyone.
I am an electronics technician from Argentina. Surely I will learn more than I can contribute to the forum, but I hope to be useful in some way.

Hello, here's another newbe from The Netherlands. I've always been interested in electronics since helping my grandfather solder old CRT tv's and tube radios with his wonky USSR oscilloscope. I now try to fix things based on very little formal knowledge, but greatly enjoy the zen of soldering.. ;-)
Right now I'm trying to fix a CCFL tv with an inverter that pops into shutdown mode for some mysterious reason..
Also a fan of Keysight youtube insight, as well as EVblog!

Electronics and automotive electrical is main interest. I am not an Engineer, I just work for them and like this position. This Forum looks like a good tool for me to use.

Hello all, I'm Albert from Kansas City. I've been doing phone and tablet repair for a living for over a decade. Not here to promote anything just thought this forum would be a good resource for some of my tinkering and expanding my knowledge.

Hello,
My name is Bruce, and I'm from Los Angeles. I have a limited background in things electrical and electronic, but limited theoretical and diagnostic abilities. I'm repairing a 1972 Delco transistor car radio and boy could I use some help.

thanks everyone!

Hello
My name is Fordi from Harare Zimbabwe
I have a keen interest in laptop repairs, though I lack any formal training. I think I have sufficient electronic basics to take my knowledge to chip level repair
This looks like a fantastic plan to learn and share
Repairing laptops is what I want to be good at.
Thank you all

Hello. My real first name is Klaus, I am from Germany. My first Computer was a Sinclair ZX81, made by Timex, with 2KB of memory, in the early 80s. When I took over to a larger machine, I had added a soft-ROM, 16GB RAM, a decent DIY keyboard made from a TI-80. The computer hardware became ever more complex, and modifying became harder. Now I am very happy to have found this forum full of keen computerists who can help one another in repairing the hardware, and I am looking forward to join in. Thanks a lot to all members! Cheers ! Klaus.
