Hi, everyone,
I just joined this community in the hope to find the right replacement part for my laptop mosfet (charging side) which let out all of the magic smoke and is not working anymore. I am not an expert, however I am completing my degree on Mechatronics engineering and since none of the local shops would help me repair the pc, I decided to have a look and do it myself. I'll most likely create a separate thread on the specifics of my problem.

Hi Everyone! I'm SkyBird.

I am a Geologist from Trinidad and Tobago with an interest in Renewable Energy, sports and art.
When I was a child I had fun disassembling gadgets and fixing gizmos that mysteriously stopped working.
Apart from my early curiosity, I have virtually no knowledge of modern electronics but I hope to learn something from you all and maybe one day become a fearless techie myself.

Nice to meet you everyone!

I won an BK Oscilloscope 2120 in an auction and came looking for the manual. I ended up here from another forum. I registered just for the manuals, but started poking around and found that this is the place I need to add for to my favorites.

I like to do my own repairs on stuff, but I'm not a brainiac when to this stuff. I can read schematic and troubleshoot for the most part. My soldering skill are good and I grasp how electronics/electricity works.

I own a few tools, but not much and not "top of line"
Fluke 189 - My daily use
Craftsman 982018 - home use (Great meter)
Mastech MS8209 (inexpensive Asian brand) - Use to get inductance of my guitar pickups I wind.
Instek Oscilloscope GOS-620
Hantek Oscilloscope 6022be

Hi all... I too am in the "What, are you new?" ranks
I live in Arlington, WA in a neighborhood of Arlington called Smokey Point.

I am a 30 year Computer tech..and multimedia is my passion. Rarely solder or use a scope since i dont have to troubleshoot to board level very often, and thats ok with me it was never my true calling, but my training provided a gateway to what did indeed become my livelihood and passion. Every so often though....

I came upon this site looking to repair my Yamaha HTR-5063 which works fine except for no output to my Surround Right speaker. I Googled "981-2A-24DS" (the relay i suspect has a bad switch inside of it on the Surround Left side of it) and the 2nd link was to here:

https://www.badcaps.net/forum/showthread.php?p=718313 - Concerning blown front stage that ended up being something else. But let me ask no hints..I have the service manual showing me approx 1 dozen parts it could be and want to see if my hunch was correct. Ill post after my attempt either successful or shameful lol but I can already see this is a good forum. Parts all told about 20 USD so its worth the cost what 1 speaker out i can only virtualize for so long. Ciao 4 now, mates!

Ahem..My Surround Left speaker has no sound.

Like Kryten, I think I would have probably removed the wrong arm from Lister.

Hei everyone!

Mainly here to clear my laptop's BIOS password, which is one of those "business" class machines, and is an HP, which makes it even a more pain in the butt, with their terrible customer support. But, you never know, maybe I find more interesting stuff along the way.

That'll be all for now.

Hello everybody,

my name is Billy03 and I am trying to fix broken electronic devices in the household. At the moment this is an LG LCD TV with a psu unit, that is not properly working.

I studied mechatronics, with a focus on mechanics and drives, not on electronics. I consider myself an advanced beginner reading schematics, hoping to gain a little more experience with the help of you all.

Hello Everyone,

I'm new to the site but found it when googling schematics for a Lenovo T430 motherboard. I've been working as End User Support for about 2 years now and am only a few hours away from an associates in CS. I love it even when it becomes very challenging. I've always liked to know how things work and have been taking apart and putting anything electrical I could since I was very young.

I am excited to find a new forum to take advantage of. It's collective knowledge by people like you that have helped me get where I am today. Thank you for any and all upcoming support.
