Bring Your Project

It’s always satisfying when a perfectly good electronics item can be rescued from the trash. Take this poor Magnavox mini TV. Sound worked, but no video.

Popping open the case revealed a capacitor that had obviously blown up.  A little disassembly and soldering of a new cap later, and the TV came back to life (as a little testing with Asteroids confirmed)…

If you have something to fix or tinker with, stop by Jigsaw Tuesday, Wednesday, or Thursday nights ay 6PM to build, tear down, or fix your project.  Resident electronics wizards Ned Konz and/or Michael Park can usually be found for a few pointers.
