Hi all! I'm Tom, I've built my desktops for over a decade, but having just had my monitor die on me, I found myself clueless and came to the guardians of this sacred knowledge.

That's you guys.

I like learning how to fix stuff.

Hi,

I've just arrived at this forum. I've been retired for quite a few years now and so no longer have access to IT work colleagues.

I'm very much a 'brown bagger' so I quickly took to doing my solving my own hardware and software problems. Internet forums have been a godsend to me. Without them I would have been lost.

Thanks to the help the members of various forums have provided I've been able to strip my computer down to the motherboard and clean the CPU. I've also solved innumerable software problems by going to forums.

The reason I came to this forum was that my Sony TV broke down. A Google search revealed to my surprise that my LCD TV was just like my computer and I could fix it by changing some components. Then I came across Badcaps and it seemed to be place where I might find some answers. Also useful was the fact that it dealt with computer problems as well - they never stop coming. Right now I have a Firefox memory overflow problem.

As I said above I'm a retiree. I live on Long Island, New York. Unfortunately, none of my friends are techies, so I wind up giving them advice.

I'm not sure my skills are high enough for me to be able to contribute much in the way of solutions, but if I can I will.

Thanks for having me. I very much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance for any help anyone might be able to give me to any problems I might post.

Hello, I am new to tv repair and actually I do it as a hobby. I pick up thrown out flat screen TV's and attempt to repair them. I have had success at several already. A 42 " Sanyo , 52" Sony XBR. I'm using the Sony in my house and the Sanyo is in the garage. I am now working on a 50" Insignia plasma. I work on helicopters and have the tools and skills but just don't have the electronic smarts. Anyway I've been here for a few weeks and decided its time to get going in more difficult repairs. Thanks for your help.

Red face Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Ok here we go.. I have no idea how to post on this or any other forum.. I've used a few... searching for various info. I've been involved with electronics in one way or another since the late 50's ..Had a TV repair business in the 60's...( non profit.. didnt plan it that way.. just the way it worked out) ...got into computers in the 60's (analog for the USAF) and then digital in the 70s..(also for the USAF) then PC's in the 80's.. KIM , Commodore ,Osborne, Atari, IBM, even some Apple..still repair computer hardware and do a little software work for the AF....and "play" with computers and anything else that runs on electricity for entertainment... Haven't tried to repair a TV in a long time.. at least not a "digital" one...seems like as the prices keep coming down ..it hardly seems worth it.. at least monetarily .. But....I still hate to throw away something that seems like it could be fixed.. and electronics is still fun .. Any how I got to this site (forum) trying to find what was wrong with a couple of not very old TV sets.. and also to learn something about the newer digital TV systems ( they don't have TUBES!!! Of any kind!! who Knew ?? ).. as soon as i figure out how to do it... I'll ask for help from what seems like a huge base of electronic experience and know how...
Tom

Hi all. just a quick msg to introduce myself. This is the first forum I have ever signed up to so please bare with me if I takes me a while to sort myself out.

I joined basically because I have a number of new(ish) TV's I would like to have a crack at fixing. I have done a re-cap on a couple of Samsung Plasmas with some success for a friend. By default I now get asked to take a look at faulty TV's when ever they crop up.

Im an IT guy by trade, got into IT programming BBC Micro model B when I was at school, career started as operator, then got into coding commercially, then pc support and training with a local council, then went into Networking many years ago. Not much experience with electronics (very, very basic knowledge).

I am currently looking at a Samsung (there's that brand again) UE40D6100SKXXU which is stuck in stand by. The LED flashes, goes out for a second, then starts flashing again. It responds to remote (extra flashes) but doesn't get further than that.

I hope I can find a few hints and tips to aid me in the fault finding process within.

So thanks, best wishes and happy soldering to everyone.

cheers
