Hi,

I'm Todd and I am an electronics tech with a formal education care of Uncle Sam and the U.S. Navy. I was one of the last classes which received component level repair training; everything is now board level or module level. It has been some time since I have had to really trouble shoot a circuit, so I am a bit rusty.

I came upon this site while trying to figure out how to repair a power supply by using parts which I have available to me. I am deployed right now so I do not have access to a parts store and ordering on line would take a long time to receive the parts.

So hopefully I can get the help I need and reignite the fun of component level repair.

I would just like to say thanks to badcaps,
I have been learning loads more than i ever would if i was studying electronics, my main skills are PC & Laptop repairs and in terms of software i work with all the main OS out there including Linux, a lot of software problems i fix using remote connection
I have nearly 20 years PC/Laptops repairs experiance but recently started to do TV and amplifiers so badcaps has been an excellent source of info for me

Hi, My name is Aaron and I am somewhat new to the whole electronics thing but have always been fascinated by it. My only "training" or "education" on the matter consists of the many things I have taken apart over the years.

Hello all newbe here
I hope to get a bit of education as I am pretty new to this and any help would be greatly appreciated. I joined the forum to lern a bit about what problem I could be faceing and how to go about trying to fix it myself. I own a LG47LH40 TV and it suddenly changes picture from a nice vivid pix to a much darker display, then stays that way. It was an intermitted problem but this time it seems to be staying permenantly dark. I am wondering If anyone else has had a problem like this and where in the forum would be my next stop. I thank you all in advance for any help you can give me.. Its a shame to toss the TV... Id like to try and do the repair myself .... worst I can do is break a broken TV right? thanx to all JS

Hello fellow tinkerers,
I've been breaking electronics for almost two decades, figured I'd try my hand at flat-screens. Of all the places on the internet, this seems to be the gold mine for component level repair knowledge, so here I am. Acquired a Panasonic Plasma with a bad board, perfect opportunity to bust out the ole' rework station. If all else fails I'll bake it in the oven, it's worked before!

Nice to meet everyone, I'm sure I'll learn a lot from you guys!

Bryan here,
Software Engineer, mobile phone application developers, quadcopter and 3d printer owner, and now I want to get deeper into fixing all my own electronics. I'm tired of electronics costing more to fix than they are worth. I enjoy cracking things open, fixing and customizing.

Thanks

And if you wouldn't mind to keep this thread \"clean\" let's try to keep the the chitchat (i.e. even the welcome to the board replies) to a minimum or this thread may get to 100 pages fast

So I'll start things off :

My name is petabyte and I'm a forum junkie. :oops: I've been off the wagon for a number of years and countless times I've tried to stop but it's useless.. I need to feed my learning addiction.. :!:

Now just a bit about me.. I'm a fairly secretive guy in terms of privacy on the net.. especially when the things you write are visable to anyone with a net connection. But I love to share the info and knowledge I have, so that's why I'm here, to share and learn.

my formal education is that of an electronic engineer and I held a field service position with a firm for over 20 years.. that job is gone now along with company car and laptop <cry> oh well..
So needless to say (but i will) I've always tinkered with things.. yes, a hacker.. (too bad that term lost it's orignal meaning) a hardware hacker mostly.. hacking fixes in whatever I find that breaks.. (except for cars, I have friends for that) I got started a little late into the computers, my first box was an ibm pc-xt with a whopping 10meg HD,blazing fast 4.66mhz 8086 processor, 640k mem running dos 3.3.. man was I cool back then.. :roll: nevermind..

so these days, I'm forced to be a software guy as well.. as I fix pc's for friends and that usually means cleaning virus/trojan/adware and reinstalling OS's.. yeah hardware breaks but not that often :cry: so as a result, I keep up on my software knowledge by visting a few security forums.. and trolling around a few hardware forums as well.

now I found this place from a thread at motherboards.org/forums
where I've been hanging out lately.. it's a nice friendly place with some pretty smart people.. mostly, of course, it's about mobo's.. So this person mentioned badcaps.net and I recalled reading articles a year or so ago about the faulty caps and was curious as to what you guys were up to.. and I said \"w00t.. they have a forum\"..

and so now.. you're stuck with me :P

so what's your story ? come on.. give it up..
