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

Hello from Des Moines, Iowa.
I do computer and small device repair, and some component level repair.
I've got some experience flashing / fixing BIOS / EFI roms for macs, and some PC's.

I actually got on to figure out how to remove the BIOS pass from an HP 840 G5, and thanks to a few of the posts I got it done!

Thumbs up Re: New Members - please post your introductions here

Hello my name is Rudy Espada . I have been working on mainly car audio and security in the early 90's but that business took a dive as all the new cars are coming equipped with alarms and remote starts . I would say when the first iPhone 3GS came out I started getting into screen replacements when it was a good money maker that really didn't last . Now I'm trying to get better at board level work lets see how that goes. Thanks for the add to the BADCAPS FORUM.

Hello all,

It's been a really long time since I posted on a forum, what a refreshing change of pace

I'm an ageing coder that always tinkered with electronics, and I've always enjoyed how communities help each other in these technical fields, and I do need some help now, so there's that. I'll be sure to pay it forward though, as I have always done to be honest...

So, greetings, it's a pleasure to be here.
