Knowing Where To Take Measurements
The different between a beginner and a seasoned repairer is that the seasoned repairer knows where to take measurement thus they could solve the problem fast. They turned on the power and place the test probes (multimeter, oscilloscope and other type of test equipment) and make measurement. The most important thing is that they know where to place the test probe.
If you are a beginner and wish to be like the seasoned repairer, there are many home work that you need to do. You must know how to use a voltmeter in the first place and dare to make the measurement when the power is on. Next, you need to understand how the equipment work with the help of books, block diagrams and schematic diagrams. If you have understood how an equipment work then it will be easy for you to determine the section to test so that you will not waste your precious time in other section. Tracing problem in a working section would surely lead you into frustration because no matter how hard you try, you will not be able to find out the cause of the problem.
After reading this post, i suggest that you start to practice because only through practice will make you a better repairer. One more thing, don’t give up when you are trying because in order to see success, you need to have strong determination.
