Greetings progr....I mean fellow techies. Long time infrastructure technician, and developer of 16 years, but quite new to soldering. This is exactly why I have seeked you out as I have a general, yet potentially dangerous situation and really look forward to gathering your wisdom on the topic. Thanks so much

I have an assortment of computer equipment dating back to the early 80s. Some works. Some I've fixed. Some is still broken! My reason for signing up for this forum was that I've been trawling online for schematics and boardviews for a 24" Mid 2007 iMac, and this site came up in the search results. It died on me yesterday and I'm grieving its loss. It had Linux Mint on it.

Hi everyone,I'm new to this forum any kind of new in electronic repairs chip level I've been doing this for a year now and I kinda like it and I wish that this page or forum will help me find the schematics and help that I needed to advance my skills and productivity.i am based in Namibia windhoek and here isn't a lot of repair shops that's why I want to start my own repair shop. because most people just throw away the electronics without thinking that it can be repaired. Michael is to encourage people to throw less electronics away and repair more this causes less refusal dump and keep our environment bit cleaner

Hi everyone, I'm Luke and I know next to nothing about electronic hardware repairs...but I'm fascinated by it. I'm an IT professional with 25 years experience in programming (everything from PIC to Python :p ), network engineering ( Cisco/Juniper/HP/Aruba ), Server admin etc. and linux enthusiast.

I'm fed up with how much perfectly repairable stuff gets e-wasted by the company I work for because they don't want to spend the time to try and fix it, and have taken to trying my hand at repairs and salvage. So far I've managed a few simple cap replacements on devices where that was obviously the problem - thanks to browsing these forums - and have now decided to stop shadowing and actually register.

Hello, glad to be here. I've been mending audio equipment for 50 years and now I've retired I like to keep the old hifi going. I would recommend to those newcomers to electronics to play around with some cheap components (transistors, resistors and capacitors) and a battery, just to develop soldering and measuring skills. There are plenty of simple circuit designs online to try.

Hi there,

Been here some years ago but cant remember with which name, so i registered myself again. This time not for repairing an old imac G5 but because of a Sony 4k HD tv of three years old which wont start anymore. Probably an error in the eMMC if i understood it correctly.

Anyway, time for some help

Newcomer here. Been working in IT for close to 10 years but never dove into world of DIY BIOS modification.

After numerous hours of searching into business level HP notebook BIOS unlocks / features, numerous searches led me here to lots of useful threads.

Looking forward to having some questions answered as well as helping others.

Hello All!
My name is Jerry, I was born in Poland and live now in Australia on Sunshine Coast. I am an Architectural Designer by trade but electronics has been my hobby for many years. Last year was absolutely horrible here in regards to architectural work, so I decided to turn my passion into a side business - with a possibility for it to become my main activity. And All Electronics Repairs was born. My Clientele base is growing steadily, as apparently I am the only one providing this service locally
I will try to help others as much as I can but honestly, I am often looking for help myself...

Hi all!
My name is Otto and I live in Bergen, Norway.
I have been repairing monitors and other electronics for many years now.
I found this url and the pages and threads when I needed to find something about my son's defective Toshiba 32av733g1. Found an old thread about the Toshiba,here!
Now i the ask if it is worth repairing now that you can get one that works for NOK 200 and the partsprices are expensive in Norway.
But should probably get it fixed.
So stand on you electronics!
Otto

If you use a printer made by the Brother Printer brand, you will have access to the perfect printing machine for your work. But one common query ‘why is my Brother printer offline windows 10 can be raised by you because during printing document, you may show offline error message on your PC screen.
