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.

"Replacement disc drive not working" için yanıtTh eInvader 2 since it “but it would show as unrecognized “ you need to be aware that the optical drive is "married" to the motherboard.

"Suddenly shows red in areas of dark black" için yanıt@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.
"0003 after attempting to reflow" için yanıtThe 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
"Why does my Saeco Classico blows house fuse?" için yanıtC. 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.
"Power-up requires multiple tries." için yanıt@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. Adding images to an existing question
"screen became almost black" için yanıtM 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
"Spilled on MacBook, opened up and now have questions" için yanıtRoger Frontera unless we can actually see your logic board and have you mark the area of concerns we can really not venture out to guess if your board is missing a component. All Apple Logic Board have multiple areas of solder pads but no components were ever placed on this. Most of this is related to the development of the boards or future expendability. So post a good picture and mark the area, with your QUESTION. Adding images to an existing question Next is the battery issue. Sure anytime you have an expanded battery there are issues that could be the cause for pretty much anything. At this time I suggest that you replace the battery and then re-evaluate about what is going on. Right now anything else will only be a guess and not very helpful to you.
"Why does the turntable spin too fast?" için yanıtGary Sivertsen I believe the motor speed is controlled through an IC on the motor itself. We would need to see what your turntable shows on the underside. If this applies to your model as well, then you most likely cannot adjust the speed. Post some good pictures with your QUESTION of what you find so we can see what you see. We would need to see if there are any trim pods etc, Adding images to an existing question
"How do I replace my power button?" için yanıtJon W take a look on here Wileyfox Swift Disassembly and see if that helps.
"Dropped my bose sound touch 20 on the race trailer floor now it won’" için yanıthummer.54 since it happened after an impact, anything is possible.
