Re: I'm Starving here....

"Only if you are like most consumers and have not a clue how things work." Not sure that I agree, but that was true 20 years ago, not today. No mater what your skill level, if a proprietary part is unavailable, or the price exceeds the replacement cost of the product, it's a junker. Example: Dehumi...

Re: I'm Starving here....

Today, most consumer products are designed to live just a bit longer than the warranty period.

Re: Possible solution!

Just copy and paste the link into your browser address box and it should open. Then scroll down to the bridge video.
I just opened it on my phone, and I don't twitter.
Hope it works...

Re: Monitoring for when a pump is running

Here is a current transformer that powers an LED. That LED can be an LED Opoisolator, and it's done.

Re: electric fence made from a microwave transformer.

There's more to a fence charger than a simple transformer. Before going into this, look at and understand, fence charger specs and the voltage and current. They also pulse the output. If you are in a shooter friendly area, make a device that fires powder-only shotgun shells at different intervals li...

Re: I'm Starving here....

After many long years-ago, being in TV service, Bubba will chime in with his thoughts! Like said, the likely hood of finding two near identical TV's is astronomical, and with the good/bad parts being opposites. I would have washed the board in detergent, rinsed it with a hose and hung it out to dry ...

Re: Remove Back Cover - Hanns.G Monitor

Here's a tip that may help First you need to determine if the cover is mechanically fastened or glued/welded which is not likely. If the cabinet has grooves around the edge try using a drop or two of common alcohol on the joint to see if it sucks in or runs off. Where it sucks in is the split line o...

Re: Is Nuts and Volts dead ?

Just a mini-rant. One of the areas I am still, or rather was, active in is electrical and electronic repairs for local printers and a binder. Ignoring the effects of this current pandemic, smaller, under 50 employee bindery and printing companies, are withering on the vine. Books are being sent over...

Re: Height Adjustable Monitor Stand

From the looks of it's design I would take the chance on that one. It has the long slides that will lower it, and it might be mounted with additional holes to the monitor differently if needed. If you're not sold on that stand, look at this one. It is a simple pipe in the back and it looks like it h...

Re: UVC Testing - Willing to pay!

Not sure I fully embrace your ambition, nor know about your electronic background, but here's a deal. My wife was a dermatology RN for years and she was involved in UV light treatments for skin disorders. When there was a problem with a light box, I repaired them. Usually it was a proprietary electr...
