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. Time to pick up the pieces, embrace the new normal and continue to Fix whatever needs fixing.

"Vertical and one horizontal lines, ghosting image" için yanıt@tomask this is somewhat hard to see. It appears as if part of your screen stays actually black as well. Hopefully that is not why you repalced teh LED’s. Clear demarcations like that are never caused by bad backlight but always caused by missing signals. If so, this could be an issue with the Gate drivers on your LCD driver board (which is part of the panel and thus not a DIY repair unless you have the tools to fix it) “Ghosting “ is usually caused by a bad T-con board and so can the vertical lines. It is less likely but possible that those are caused by a bad main board. Concern are the horizontal issue with most commonly are a “bad panel” Post a picture showing the whole screen at once (right side up) so we can see it more clearly.
"TCL 55S434: Is this a light difusing sheet problem?" için yanıt@honenator those look like pressure marks. Yes it is possible that this is on the diffuser sheets or that they have moved. Time to disassemble the display and check out the sheets. Make sure that you mark them and replace them exactly as they come out of your display. Same order same direction etc. It’s amazing how many people flip the polarizer sheet or change the order of the sheets which is a PITA to sort out.
"How to repair Audio connector on a older 2008 13" MacBook Air?" için yanıtTecno Russo take a look on your board and locate the 820-XXXX number and let us know what that number is. Most likely either your solder pads are no longer good or it is tearing on the trace. Like it was said before we would need to see what you are looking at. Since you can still solder your connector it appears to be in a condition where it should still hold. The picture that is attached to your question looks like a QT500166-L020a connector and there are some anchor points on that. So, if you can't anchor it properly and it just connects to the solder pads/traces it will most likely tear off (further damaging your board). Either it is not properly soldered or it is missing the anchors. Worst case scenario some underfill with some hot glue (not Crazy Glue)will at least keep it in place. Make sure it is properly soldered.... We need to see your board and your connector not some stock images. That won’t help us any.
"Acer XZ270U No Power" için yanıt@redmaus looks like your main board is on the Fritz. The two larger capacitors appear to have swollen tops and thus have failed. At minimum I would replace all caps on that board.
"Without Charger for iPhone 12?" için yanıt@supremealah22 no more charger included. Apple justifies the exclusion of a charger by saying they are doing good for the environment by cutting down on package waste. They did not tell us that they will make more money since iPhone 12 users will now have to buy a charger separate. Profit-over-Planet :-(
"My bike built june99,98/99model?" için yanıtprecious lightwood-carroll it is the 10th digit on your Vespa’s serial number that is the model year. So your VIN (being a 1999) would start with something like ZAPC1600 (as Christophe VAULLEGEARD pointed out) which does NOT indicate the year. ZA= Made in Italy P= Piaggio/Vespa C161M= Engine code next should be model number and finally the 10th digit is the model year. So yours may show a number 9 Of course we would need to have your Vespa’s number to verify and assist you further.
"Replace screen or replace frame & screen as unit of oneplus 5T?" için yanıt@brokeittwice get the complete assembly. It is a lot easier to replace. It may cost you more but your repair will be quicker and good results are more likely.
"Connecting Onkyo to AV Dock" için yanıt@gruntoki96 all you really would need are some Apple Component AV Cable. Something like this You can then connect the audio RCA jacks to your Onkyo like any other source. You can download the user manual for your TX-RZ820 from here It will show you how to hook audio source up.
"blank picture but sometimes showed bad colour n is talking" için yanıtsokefun gbenga albert if it sometimes shows you a bad picture (poor quality) but keeps sound then the issue is most likely a bad T-con board (Samsung part number is BN95-00858B or BN95-00858A depending on version of what is in your TV). We really would need to see what your TV shows and what the boards looks like. If you can post some good pictures of those boards with your QUESTION. That way we can see what you see. Adding images to an existing question
"LG 42LB6300 : Vertical lines on screen. Ribbon bw T-Con and LED broken" için yanıtNidheesh V there sure is no way to fix it on a DIY level. There are shops that specialize in that repair but the cost will be more than a new panel (screen). The issue is the way the ribbon cable has been “attached” to the panel. That is done via a special bonding procedure (tape automated bonding ). That procedure uses Anistropic tape as the bonding agent and special equipment to apply it. Now I have seen one TV display where some really crafty and very talented person actually managed to solder a ribbon cable in place. Not pretty but he got it working. To clarify , it is not an easy DIY fix but there may be very crafty people in your area that can help you with that. Take a look at something like this and on here for a really good explanation.
