I'm Jason. I was a board repair tech long ago and had an auto shop for about 5 years. I then was an electrician for 13 years, now I work for a large Certification Company doing Field Evaluations. I am more an Andriod guy then Apple. I work on TVs and monitors when I find the time.

Hello Tom's.
I just joined your forum, I am 73 years old. I have been working with television engineering for 47 years, I currently have a software company, and in my spare time likes to fly my plane, and travel here in South America. I wonder if anyone has the diagram of the Samsung NP350XAA

I plan to use this forum to help me solve TV or computer problems. I am 86 years old and having some difficulties with what others would consider routine operations. Thank you

I came here because I need help from clever people, mostly about my Creative Surround Sound System and the problems I have trying to connect to my TV. Apart from that, I run a YouTube channel focused on Synthwave music, which I love.
The first "computer" I owned was a Vic 20, then a Commodore and then onto PC. Boring I know but that's me in a nutshell.
Hello everyone and have a great 2021.

Howdee,
I have always found contentment using the audio cassette format. I have a large
selection of audio cassettes, and am now developing a new hoppy of refurbishing decks.
A great way to stave off senility and a perfect mental therapy exercise. I get joy out
of getting a neat old deck running again.
I am astounded at how well some of the audio
cassettes I have kept a strong signal on the tape. And I have found no correlation as to
why some tapes last better than others.
And the decks are just magnificent pieces of workmanship in most cases.

Hey all!
Names Agustin, from Colombia. I've mostly been an Android user for smartphones and PC/windows (Surface, ASUS, Dell) for personal computer. I actually usually find myself to be fairly capable with electronics and hardware, software, intefacing with them etc. So I am coming to the forum now for help moreso with interfacing with the companies' that provide these products/services - phones, computers and network service providers. Actually I am about to finish my minor in Computer engineering in college (bachelors) and pride myself in being a little more cognizant of the happenings in these industries which I will communicate to whoever asks me about my choice of android or etc. Open source, linux, other softwares. That being said, I still have lots to learn and hopefully discussing on this forum can help me in that prospect.

G'day folks

I am new here, I love Toshiba and Samsung, I am not into gaming i just use my laptops for my craft and sewing / Machine embroidery. I do a lot of my own repairs as were remote so no chance of getting to a computer tech in town. Just hoping to get some help on a problem my sons laptop has had for some time, he actually give it to me to see if i could fix it and if i can its mine.

Hi guys! Am not a tech savvy at any extent but I've been reading Tomsguide for a while and the posts here are very helpful, especially when it comes to comparing different programs or gadgets.

Hello all,
I used to figure things out, but apparently, as I approach 65, my brains are not what they used to be. The last 4 hours have been spent attempting to connect my Seiki TV (Model SE50FYT (5 yrs old)), a Vizio Soundbar (Model V21-H8 (new)), and a new Amazon Fire TV Stick 4K.
The TV has 3 HDMI plugs, doesn't appear to have an HDMI ARC plug, There is also a slot labeled optical, but the optical cord I have does not fit.
I am driving myself crazy - please help me before I throw something out the window! I thank you for your time.
