Should I Check All Components In The Circuit?
Got an interesting question from a fellow member " If I am repairing a circuit board there may be 50 or more components on the board, am I to check each component, until the defective component is located? This can be a very time consuming exercise."
And here is my answer to him-
If you do not understand the circuit you may need to check all of them. If you know how the circuit work then you may only check on the necessary section that may only consist of only few components. By the way, checking the whole components for that particular circuit can be good for you because you will understand all of the components characteristic, spec, part number and etc. You will learn a lot by checking them like this. Once you are familiar with the circuit, the next similar type of board arrive in your workplace, you will know what to check and what not to check and this can save you a tremendous amount of time.
