Hi all,
I'm John from N. Ireland now 54 years old.
I started an interest in electronics at the age of 10, and built my first veroboard board project from Hobby electronics magazine then. (Just came across it in a garage clearout last week and have to say my soldering skills from then have definitely improved!!!)
At present I work for a local government education authority as part of a schools maintenance / repair team, attempting to fix any electronic that can be can be taken apart ....from faulty printer mechanisms to component level repair within laptops.
Hope I can be of assistance within this great website.
regards, John.

It's nice to be on board! Im a retired electrician and I keep busy mostly working on vintage tube amps and restoring speakers. Occasionally someone gives me a solid state stereo amp to work on Stella but not that often so my knowledge of solid-state Electronics is slim but slowly growing. I've done quite a bit of recapping although I would not call myself an expert! As with the majority of sites I have joined, my goal is to learn. This looks like a good place to do it and I'm hoping that sight reading through the posts and asking some questions from time to time I will be able to become more proficient. I appreciate any help there anyone is willing to muster and as always, I appreciate any opportunity to learn.

If only I could have my Commodore 64 and Atari back, life would be grand. I still have my Pong though.

Hi, I'm Calil and a new member of this forum. I just like to fix and recycle things that can be done. And I hope my kids will learn this craft also.

Though I managed to fix two of my Dell 2312HM without power already before by just reading some of the comments I found on this forum. I only manage to create an account now for I again I'm looking for a solution to a new encountered problem with another monitor and I got hooked even more for lots of information that can be found here.

Thanks for all the contributors and members who by one way or another spared their time to help.

Hello! I joined this place to try and work out what's wrong with the power delivery on my laptop, hoping to get schematics for it. While I'm waiting, has anyone got any good advice for poking around on the motherboard?

about me.

I'll give a little info... I've been in the electronics field since 1997, with experience ranging from TV/VCR/CAMERAS and repair all consumer electronic product. I started in computers in 2005, just for a change and something I thought would be more challenging.... First of all, in the computer field, I AM NOT a number cruncher (programmer) because I'm a hardware/mechanical... I can install any OS, repair and make it work. but nearly coming too much problems with the BIOS so i learned almost every editing,and recovery works in bios. sorry if any grammer mistake in my english!
