Afternoon, everyone, from sunny London, where the skies are perpetually grey (well, feels like that sometimes!)

Been meaning to join for a while now, and finally found the time. Looking forward to contributing, though my experience is relatively limited (only done a few mobos and some graphics cards).

Have a good Sunday all.

Cheers, Jon.

Just want say Hello! to all. I am a noobie to the electronic world but have always enjoyed taking thing apart and fixing them or at least getting spare parts. I found this forum and believe I would enjoy repairing old items that cost hundredsto replace but could be repaired for pennies...

I'm happy to have found this forum. My first computer was an Amstrad 8MHz. (That goes way back). There have been several others in between this one. Now I'm running an HP with W7 64bit and a 4 core AMD with 10GB. I found Badcaps while searching for a solution for my suddenly dead Samsung SyncMaster 941BW monitor. I found that another had a similar problem, and a solution was offered..probably bad capacitor(s). So, I'm going to open the monitor, check the components, and replace any that are defective. Thanks for being here. I'll fill you in on my progress.

Norm

Aloha, I came across your site while researching capacitor replacements. I'm just now starting to learn about soldering and capacitor replacement but have been in the IT industry for 12 years. Looking to become a better technician through actual electronics REPAIR as opposed to swap
We have lots of equipment in an outdoor environment and I'm seeing plenty of issues with caps.

Hey coming here from the Mitten State. I have multiple hats but the newest one is that of auction buyer. Some of the time I buy a lot that is store returns. 50% of the stuff is fine and I can sell but the others don't work. So I need to learn how to fix them so I can make some money on them. I am completely a infant when it comes to hardware but I love to learn so I'm hoping that I'll be able to learn something and fix some stuff.

Hello I'm Hardware, a tech grunt that went back to school to become an electronics engineer. Normally don't say much although when I do it's to help someone.

Great site, thank you for hosting it.

Hi all. Been lurking these forums for a while looking for a fix for my dying Samsung 2493HM. I didn't find the answer posted already, but I'm confident I can figure it out with the help of the wizards on here

I found this forum when my Magnavox tv stopped working. It always had an intermittent issue with the green power light. I haven't repaired it yet, the caps are all good.

I work at a hospital and I maintain the medical equipment .
I started pulling monitors from the recycling area. I have am amazed at how many of them have bad caps.

I have repaired close to 20 flat panels and have noticed many bad caps on pc's. I also collect vintage stereo equipment, mostly from the early 70's. Its nice to work on equipment that was meant to be repaired and well built.

I work 2nd shift so its time to get ready for work. I like to go to the thrift store on my way to work, you never know what you will find. What a great source of information. Thanks

Hi, Moses here - retired tech trying to keep in touch with the repair industry.
Current interests are experimenting with battery desulfating and repairing electronic items otherwise headed for the garbage tip.
Seem to be in constant need of circuits/maintenance manuals.
Current projects are:-
A Philips Plasma (about 8 years old - intermittent)
An old Kikusui CRO (model 555)
A couple of monitors (inverters OK)
Have a keen interest in SMPS units (large & small).
Usual test equipment - DVMs, CROs, Audio osc, RF Osc, LCR bridge etc.
happy to help others.

My name is Richard and I've been in the electronics repair biz for over 20 years. I'll visit here if I get stuck and compare some notes or, offer some insight to what I'm finding with the newer Tvs. My first posts will be in regards to my findings with newer model Vizio Tvs, I've been studying the boards in depth.

Hi All,
Found this site whilst looking for a fix for my Philips PHP-X19 monitor.
Thanks to you guys I am now armed with the knowledge to effect a cheap repair, (limited funds), and breathe new life into something that would have gone to landfill.
Thanks again and now that I have found you I will be making frequent visits and hopefully submitting something back in return.
Joey

Hi all,
New member here. First, a big THANK YOU to the website/forum owners & moderators.
Months ago I was searching on Google for what might be the problem with my LCD computer display.
This site came up in the search results.
After some reading here and elsewhere, it looks like the problem is most likely some bad caps.
Haven't had time to take the display apart yet, but when I do, will start by first spending some more time reading here.
