So, who am I and why am I here? I consider myself just a regular Joe. I am old enough to know better but still believe in trying to save the world and humanity. One device at a time. I love to mentor and to help others, I am into re-purposing and trying to repair anything.
I come from a time and a place where there was never enough money to just replace things or to just go and buy new stuff. Fixing things was not a passion but a necessity. 50 years of fixing, building and yes, breaking things as well, has taught me a lot. During my lifetime I've learned that the only thing that truly matters is how we get along with others; to never prematurely judge people. I do judge people by their actions and not by some preconceived notion. If you are being kind and compassionate toward our environment (people, planet, animal, etc.) you are okay in my book.
I have learned a lot and continue to study and learn new things daily. This enables me to provide some answer on this forum. It enables me to help someone that needs it and it helps to keep things going. All too often we discard stuff just because it is broken and we do not know how to fix it. This puts an incredible strain on our environment and it makes others rich. We all should support organizations like https://repair.org/stand-up/ to fight for our right to repair. It’ll keep our hard earned money in our pockets instead of further feeding the Profit-before-People (Planet) machinery.
“We all want to help one another. Human beings are like that. We want to live by each other's happiness, not by each other's misery. We don't want to hate and despise one another. In this world there is room for everyone, and the good earth is rich and can provide for everyone. “ (Charlie Chaplin in “The Great Dictator”) Totally awesome expression thereof shown here
Ten years on iFixit is a long time. After some debates with family and friends, I’ve made the decision to take a step back and to slow it down a bit but I will continue to support the efforts by everyone put forward on here.

Antwort auf „How can I get the green tint off my TV when there's dark scenes”@scarface12901 symptoms like “looks washed out, cloudy, green tints “ are usually caused by a bad T-con board. Since your TV is all but one month old, return it. This may be a bad panel. It will not get better and there is no reason for you having to already mess with it. Return it, get a new one or get your money back. Remember so with Hisense, TCL etc. you get what you pay for. It is okay to have lower expectations, it is not okay to receive a TV that fails after one month.
Antwort auf „Visio E55OVL LCD HDTV”mrwol we need to see what boards you have in your TV. Vizio uses a hodgepodge of parts and you just never know what you get. Post some good pictures with your QUESTION. Bilder zu einer vorhandenen Frage hinzufügen Next you want to check that you have stby voltage on the connector leading to the main board. If you do not have any stby voltage it is most commonly your power board which has failed. Should you have that voltage the issue can be coming from the main board. Remember that the power supply in principle is always on and it is the main board that tells the power supply on how to distribute and which board to turn on etc. (very simplified)
Antwort auf „Sony Alpha A77V Display LCD no Backlight”@naratz first try to reset the camera to factory settings. Consult your User Manual for that. If that does not work, check your circuit board. Most of these cameras actually have a fuse for the backlight circuitry. Post some really good images of only the circuit board (front and back) with your QUESTION.
Antwort auf „Can the power button be fixed?”@strikerrosv the power button is soldered to the motherboard. So, the trouble here would be to find a replacement. Of course, you would also need to know how to solder and have the tools for it. Can it be done? Yes, but it will require the complete disassembly, sourcing a replacement power button and then some soldering.
Antwort auf „Replacement disc drive not working”Th eInvader 2 since it “but it would show as unrecognized “ you need to be aware that the optical drive is "married" to the motherboard. If you need to replace your optical drive you must remove the daughter board on the original optical drive assembly and install it on the drive you intend to install in your PS4.

Antwort auf „Suddenly shows red in areas of dark black”@akilogames this is either a bad T-con board or a failed panel. I’d replace the T-con board to rule out the panel.
Antwort auf „0003 after attempting to reflow”The invader 2 0003 is either a dead GPU or no power going to the GPU. It all will depend how you did the “reflow”. Remember, that this is always a hit or miss. Ultimately you’d need a reball and a new IC since it is the actual chip design that causes the failure
Antwort auf „Why does my Saeco Classico blows house fuse?”C. Ronald Kahn this “disconnecting the wire going to the heating element “ could be the part that shortens the circuit. I suggest that you check the resistance across the heating element (I’d expect a resistance between 5 and 25 Ohms). Let us know what you find. Also, post some good pictures of your Saeco parts etc. with your QUESTION so we can see what you see.
Antwort auf „Power-up requires multiple tries.”@payolap could be a cold solder connection or a failed capacitor/MOSFET on the power board. We would need to know the exact model number for your TV. Also, remove the back cover from your TV and take a look at all the boards. Check for any obvious damage like missing or burned components etc. Post some good pictures of your boards with your QUESTION. That way we can see what you see.

Antwort auf „screen became almost black”M Hassan you will have to remove the EMI shield to properly identify which component has failed. As you can see there are many so unless you remove it, we cannot assist you any further. Update (10/26/2020): Still trying to find the eplist for this phone. Typical Sony since they no longer have schematics at all. It may take a while. Part s are identified by reference designator
