Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the site but found it when googling schematics for a Lenovo T430 motherboard. I've been working as End User Support for about 2 years now and am only a few hours away from an associates in CS. I love it even when it becomes very challenging. I've always liked to know how things work and have been taking apart and putting anything electrical I could since I was very young.

I am excited to find a new forum to take advantage of. It's collective knowledge by people like you that have helped me get where I am today. Thank you for any and all upcoming support.

Default Re: Vizio M55-C2 HASE BACKLIGHT NO PICTURE

Hello.
I am 48 years old.
I live with my family in the south of France
in a village.
To fight against programmed obsolescence,
I repair all that I can in my house.
I am also passionate about vintage hifi and music hifi.
I work at the French Post Office but when I was young,
I worked in public electronics.
I repaired the hifi equipment and the cathode ray televisions.
Today, I'm repairing for myself and messing around for friends.

I'm starting to study plasma TV technology
and lcd that are not really familiar to me.
But it's very difficult for me digital technologies.

Please forgive me for my very bad English.
I use google translation to read or write my messages.
It's not perfect and the translations are sometimes very far-fetched but
It allows me to understand a little different exchanges between forums.
This is the first electronic mutual aid forum in English.
I hope that I could help and also receive.

PS ....
If you allow and it's allowed by the forum charter,
I also posted on a French site troubleshooting there is longtemp
of my hitachi plasma TV 55PD9700C.
http://www.teleservice-depannage.com...-55pd9700C.htm
The first message is from Monday, December 19, 2012
It's not advertising but I'm here the approach that allowed me to
to bring this TV back to life.
If this is not allowed, then please remove the link.
The breakdown was solved by the repair but with a lot
of difficulty and temp passed.
I bought this broken down TV with the intention of repairing it for me and my family.

Finally, many of my electrical appliances were saved from the dumpster.

cordially

Thierry

First time at this forum. I "used to" repair TV's, Audio Equipment, Guitar Amps, Computers and more. Been out of it for a long time but people still ask for my help. So, I'm here hoping to pick up a few tips from those who are more active in the field.

I saw a tv on the side of the road while walking with a friend. We later picked it up and carried it to his house. I’m hoping to fix it by posting a new thread asking for help. It’s a Sharp lc-60le600u.

Greetings everyone I am ICCRRP but you can call me Ayce. I am a long time hardware and software IT from Kansas. Started by tinkering with the computer we had at home. Nothing like learning Dos 4.11 from the original manual on an IBM. From there worked my way up the ladder through the windows OS (yes i was that person who would run win95 in Dos mode lol). My first personally owned computer was an Apple Mac LCIII and from there started my path of adding Apple to my skillset. Since I have moved over to Unix and Linux, got my degree in Systems and Network Administration, been a top level software Admin for a Hospital, and finally got back to my roots of hardware. Now i mainly refurbish, modify, tinker, sometimes break on purpose everything from Laptops to Retro Calculators.

Hi everyone, this looks like a great forum with excellent advice. I'm an electronics tech but mostly work on biomedical engineering devices such as x-ray, CT, and MRI. I'm on here to see if I can fix my old Philips TV - wish me luck!
