Sustainable living through product repair and re-use
Did you know it is possible to troubleshoot and repair most common consumer electronics without the repair manual and schematics?
There are too much electrical and electronic products thrown away by consumers and these junks are contributing to an ever growing landfill and pollution problem worldwide. Consumers often have a choice to prolong the life of a product through re-use or repair, but too many are not aware of this choice. I wish to help increase the awareness by teaching people who are not electronics experts to do their own repair. Although I have extensive professional experience in the computer and cell phone industries (both software and hardware) and I have a fundamental understanding of microcomputer system and electronics, I am not an expert in electronics design and repair as the specialists are. However, for most modern electronic products, the troubleshooting and repair should not be very difficult to understand for those who are technically savvy, or those who are curious, meticulous and persistent. I wish to share my electronics troubleshooting and repair knowledge with you through practical examples.
Before attempting to work with any electrical equipment, always make sure to thoroughly study the procedures and take all precautions. Always disconnect the power before taking apart or working on any equipment.
