Happiest Moment In Electronics Repairing

By on December 12, 2012

I could still recall one of my happiest moment in the field of electronics repairing is when I could repair two AT power supplies during my first day at work in a computer shop back in early 90's. I told the good news to my family members and my girlfriend ( now my wife) and I was just happy throughout that day. The next day I manged to repair 4 then 8 then 16 to 20 pcs AT power supplies everyday. Even after so many years have passed the sweet memory still playing in my mind. Of course I have other happy moments but that was the best I could ever remember because the computer shop was the first job that I have involved heavily in electronics repair. Kind to share your happiest moment?  If yes please make a comment below.

    Hi Jestine
    My happiest moment was when I repaired my first TV. It was my neighbour's CRT 21" colour TV, the problem was that the vertical deflection would collapse to a single horizontal line after 5 minutes.
    The problem was caused be a Zener diode that had become short, it obtained power from the 27 volt rail for the vertical IC and it dropped it to 8v for the IF circuit. When it shorted after heating up the 27 Volts for the Vertical IC would drop to about 16 volts.
    It took me 5 days to find the problem but I was very happy when I managed to get it to work again!
    My troubleshooting skills have now improved a lot from reading your articles. Thank you very much!

      Hi Zibbo,

      Thanks for sharing. Even though already spent 5 days the experience that you have gained is still worth it. That's why when i conduct my repair course I found that many of the students like to hear about my true repair stories and the journey in electronics repair. And this kind of stories had inspired them.

    Hello Mr. Jestine, I am very happy to have found on the search engines that your site is the repair of electronic equipment.
    I also saw who also built the Ebook that address the repair of monitors, switching power supply ect. But I was a little disappointed that still has not made a Guda or Ebook format course dealing with the rifaparazione of LCD TVs, very topical and more in my opinion much more interesting
    and more economically profitable from the point of repair.
    I know that there are other Ebook facing this type of repair but since I
    I have much more confidence in his preparation and skill wonder if in the future there are plans the idea of ​​making his Ebook on repairing LCD TV.
    Greetings and all my respect for the work done so far.
