Troubleshooting and Repairing Consumer Electronics Without a Schematic by Homer L. Davidson
9780070156500 Trouble-shooting and repairing consumer electronic equipment without the benefit of a detailed schematic diagram is one of the most common problems faced by professional technicians and advanced hobbyists. The author provides tips and trade secrets learned during his years as the owner of a radio- and TV-repair business. Illustrations and photographs demonstrate how to locate, test and repair defective components in: audio amplifiers; car radios; cassette decks; black and white TV chassis; colour TV chassis; compact-disk players; power supplies; AM/FM receivers; and VCRs. A list of common mechanical symptoms, a trouble-shooting chart telling readers where to look for specific problems, and case histories explaining how various repairs were made, are included for each type of unit.
