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 repurposing 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
Nine 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.

"Can anybody tell me what the problem could be?" için yanıtSat Kumar attach an external monitor and see if that shows properly. This is either a LCD issue or a GPU issue. Let us know what the external monitor shows you.
"Xiaomi Mi 9 Screen Replacement Lines/Faulty Touchscreen" için yanıt@sadphonenoises could be a bad display assembly. Possibly so is that this is left over from the water damage. You said you let it dry out but did not say you cleaned it and checked it. This could easily be corrosion damage/component damage because of the water immersion. You do want to go ahead and clean everything on the inside of your phone Use this guide Repairing iPhone Liquid Damage to do so. It was written for an iPhone but the cleaning is the same as it should be for your phone. After that, re-evaluate.
"Vizio D65U-D2 wont stay on after PSU, T-con, and Led Driver Board Rep?" için yanıtMatthew Parsons all of this “The screen suddenly goes black, and the LEDs go out. The power stays on though “ sounds like a bad backlight array. Replace those backlight strips and re-evaluate.
"The sound cuts out at different times on different channels" için yanıt@budster47 try a eset first. Disconnect all inputs and everything else that maybe plugged in to your TV. Then disconnect the power cord. Hold the power button down for about a minute. Then connect one video input source. Use a local source like a BR player or a game console and see if that made a difference. Cable and Sat boxes can cause issues with sound as well hence a local input source. If everything remains unchanged and the sound still cuts out, the issue could be the sound IC on your main board. We’d need to at least know what model it is and possibly see a couple of good pictures of all of the TV’s boards. You can post those with your QUESTION. Remember, this is a Toshiba. There is absolutely no help for DIY’er from this company. They are as paranoid as Apple and others when it comes to self repair. So we’ll have to rely on each other to fix Toshiba devices
"Strange occurance with power" için yanıt@mummybear since everything else works and multiple remote show the same symptoms it is most likely an issue with your TV’s IR board. That is the board that “translates” the remote signals. I’d start with that. Since we do not know the model of your TV we really can’t give you further details.
"I know my Star Raiders cartridge is Good. Is my console bad?or RF Mod?" için yanıtJordan Fryman its a great console and worthwhile fixing. You do need to remember that you have a device that is almost 40 years old ;-) I suggest that you make the effort and disassemble it completely and clean the board, card reader etc. with some 90% + isopropyl alcohol. Check all the caps. Most of those will most likely have to be replaced. So, clean (yes inside your switches as well as the CART connectors etc. )then recap, and after that re-evaluate.

"Got sound but black screen work fine no picture" için yanıtQuinesha murray your TV has a failed backlight. This can be caused by a bad power board or bad backlight strips. We need to know the exact model of your TV to try and help you further. Also let us know what you have tried to fix it. If you have removed the back cover from your TV already, post some good pictures of your boards with your QUESTION. That way we can see what you see. Adding images to an existing question
"Had to remove a punctured battery. Will it still work with just one?" için yanıtAlex do not use it since you are running the risk of having this battery go up in smoke. Replace it to be on the safe side.
"Why is does my right analog stick randomly begin to drift?" için yanıt@crnja sounds like a worn out spring in the analog joystick. Replace it by soldering a new one to the board. DualShock 4 Left Analog Stick Replacement
