Hey folks. I ended up joining here because I was gifted a Onix Rocket UFW-10 yesterday. The guy said it beeped a bit when you started it up and when I got it home it ended up actually having a full on sine wave noise when you turn it on. So pretty much unusable until I fix it really. So I found a thread here so I will be checking it out. hopefully I have the same problem.

Would be a great part of my plans to expand my home theater setup during covid.

I actually have a few things with bad caps too. I have a few Rokit VXT4's that I actually paid money for because someone ripped me off. I replaced some caps that were bad on it but it still doesn't work So maybe I can check that out as well.

Hi all,
Although I am a software engineer, I have built many of my personal computer systems (starting with a Heathkit H-89 in 1982). I have also performed maintenance and even motherboard replacements on Penguin Computing (SuperMicro motherboards) servers and workstations. I found a batch of serial numbers of 8 Penguin workstations that almost all went bad due to bad capacitors within a year of each other. Now, one of my Asus VK266H monitors is showing snow and noise, slowly converging to an image in about 30 seconds after turn-on. This site has helped me identify the source of the problem as leaking capacitors, so I have a new set on order. If I can build a Heathkit computer and a Heathkit GR2000 television (circa 1970s) from parts, I can do this!

-James

Hello everyone!

My name is Carter and I am a Systems Engineer by trade and am newly into the world of self-repairing electronics. I have always been into the idea of DIY solutions like building a computer but, I never quite got into electrically/computer engineering as much as I did computer networking. Well, I have recently started doing my own repairs like fix the analog sticks on an Xbox One S controller and I love it! I'm glad to join this community and am very eager to learn from all of you!

Thanks,

Hello everyone!

I am a learning enthusiast and have been really into electronics lately, although I am still a novice.

However, I hope to learn a few things and count on your help in the process.

Thanks!

Howdy Hey from Kansas City Missouri (Misery)...
I own "Jonyjams Computers" & "Jonyjams Studios" (recording studio) in Wellington Missouri.
We have a little over 150,000 machines spread out over the good ole USA (25 years), and have lost count on all the repairs done in my shop...
Yup, I'm older then dirt. Not sure you youngins know anything about the good ole Sinclairs or the "Lisa"?... (talkin late 60's and early 70's).
At any rate, I rear from that world and later studied Plastic Technology and was fortunate enough to be on the ground floor as an engineer to help Kraft foods Inc convert glass over to plastic. Later designed & engineered 2 very successful Continuous Extrusion and Micro-processing plants in Illinois and Missouri respectively. (what a cut throat industry)...
Food for thought... "It doesn't take a good machine operator to make a good machine run, It takes a good machine operator to make a bad machine run"... at any rate...

Through a google search looking for parts is how I found "Badcaps".
Surfing through the site reveals a ton of Knowledge and help...
Glad I found the place...
