12 thousand pages, that's impressive. Curious if anyone reads these.. Either way..
I'm Malacath, some people can't be bothered to write all that out and just say Mal.
Got a broken TV and I felt this was a good time to learn a bit more about electronics than what I know. In my search for an active forum I stumbled on this one, looks very promising. I hope I can get some support here.

Hello.
My name is Thomas, I'm from ... ugh ... Utah - of all places.
I've been a software engineer for over 25 years, and I'm currently trying to get my startup off the ground.
Happy to be here I probably will have more questions than answers - but I'll try my best.

Hi, my name is Edoardo and I am a fan of electronics and retrocomputing.
I live in Italy and have been working for twenty years in a large American company that produces servers and storage.
In my spare time I enjoy restoring old computers from the 80's or older.
I always try to fix all that I can and I really like to study in depth how things that I repair are designed.

Hi everyone.
totally new here, but definitely not a beginner in computers.
a lil about me.... name, jinakubwa, all the way from Dar es salaam in Tanzania, originally from Mombasa, Kenya. Started out in hardware maintenance, networking, system admnistration and did that for roughly nine years in Nairobi,Kenya later felt the challenge was waning and started upping my skills in programming, found java to be a little to much, python super good but could not work with for lack of available resources then, later got hooked on to javascript.
My first computer was a pentium II IBM in mid 2000 while still in college given as a present by one construction Engineer after i solved his office printer problem where the IT engineers from the firm that had delivered the printer had failed. I walked into their office(Construction guy's) that day and seeing the printer, which was new, knew it only worked with USB 2.0 which i knew because i was following on, updates of the latest technology from PC Magazine. i advised that another printer cable be bought and went on to buy it myself and you guessed it, the printer worked. thats how i got my first computer because the IT engineers had spent 3 days trying to connect the printer. :-)
Well, now am here because i have always loved electronics but they gave me a scare back in college when trying to diagnose some faulty CRTs in a cybercafe that had poor grounding which gave me quite a many electric shocks to an extent that i ended up dreaming being electric shocked that night. :-)
I quit electronics from that day, but the love still remained because i have always wanted to design my own electronics equipment for automation purposes, and with a fairly modest understanding of programming, maybe i can pull it it off before i check out of this world.
So am currently fixing computers on part time, getting to understand electronics in deep, growing mushrooms(well, its a serious bother trying to keep up with clean, sterile environment and all for a computer junkie) and growing flowers while at the same time designing pots for the same.

Default Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

So here I am posting an introduction on an internet forum for electronic and software geeks. Never imagined doing something like this. Started out in electronics many years ago completing a home study course in electronics with Cleveland Institute of Electronics and got a 1st Class Radiotelephone License as a result. Got a job doing field service with a multinational conglomerate and serviced electron beam recorders, laser beam recorders, microfilm retrieval systems, etc. From there moved on up to a pilot plant manager in a microelectronics pilot plant doing thick film hybrid circuits using a laser trimmer for resistors.

Retired early and then took a job with a telecommunications giant doing product safety, reliability and environmental sustainability. Retired from there as well. Somewhere along the line a I got a BS in Physics and a MS in Manufacturing Systems Engineering.

I have repaired TVs and radios when they had vacuum tubes. Moved on up to transistors and ICs but nowadays, circuits are too complex and utilize components which have SMT topologies that are very difficult to repair if I can determine what is wrong. Hence, I only repair those things which can be troubleshot easily. I was able to repair a Samsung LED TV recently which had no display and no backlight.

Which leads me to my current repair. I repaired a Yamaha Piano keyboard which had a faulty slide potentiometer and was able to find the exact same part with the same footprint and functionality. Now I need to repair my console organ which I've owned for many years. It is a Yamaha Electone Organ Model 205D. I need a schematic but can't get one from Yamaha. The organ's Auto Arpeggio is not working and the upper manual cuts off intermittently.

Any assistance or guidance would be appreciated.

Looking forward to participating in this forum...

Mark G.

Hello.

I am Sami from Norway. Just like fuzzfrog, I am also a software dev that are here to learn more about hardware. I do have in fact some prior experience in hardware because I studied electrical and electronics engineering before I switched over to software engineering.

I consider myself as a tech geek and I love to repair broken electronics in my home and play with arduino on my hobby basis, all this aside from coding

Looking forward to learn more about circuits and electronics in general.

Best Regards
Sami Rashiti
