Television repair



I want to fulfill a life long desire to learn how to do basic

television repairs. To this end I thought about purchasing

on of those $49.00 Tv repair courses on CD rom with

downloaded lessons.

Has any poster had any experience with these courses

and how would you rate same. Thanks for any imput.

IMHO it is a dying trade.

Unless you become a 'fully' qualified bench repair engineer for either a dedicated 'in house' team or a national 'authorised' repair agent, it is not something I'd recommend these days.

You do need qualifications and experience with a workshop. That is the only way to do it for a living.

However, if it's just a hobby, then a course is an excellent introduction. Just be aware of several things you'd need afterwards.

First and foremost is always safety.

Then the kit and spare parts, of which there can be many.

And finally a place to actually do it in, ie a mini workshop.

A cd rom could be useful as a guide, but the whole thing is so varied, I'd say get a job as an apprentice somewhere, you'll learn stacks more and it'll be so much more educational too.

Wether it's for fun or a career, good luck. :smashin:
