    Here's an odd one to add to your list: COCKROACHES!!! Back in 1980 I was stationed in Panama and I had brought my brand new TRS-80 Model 1 with me. Down there, cockroaches are running around by the millions and there's no way to keep them out of the open-sided buildings. Many times I found cockroaches scurrying from my computer when I turned the light on. One day the computer stopped working so I opened it up and found a good half inch of the circuit board eaten away. I had to jury rig some support to get the circuitry to work again, and then started regularly spraying the area around the computer with Raid to keep them from coming back. ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ to your marvelous channel!!!

    My dad got our family a Macbook Pro about a decade or so ago; back when I was still young and ignorant of computer care. It was meant to be a "family laptop", but...I hogged it, of course, since it was so much better than our Windows XP Dell desktop at the time, in terms of ease-of-use and stuff (I'm still of the opinion macOS beats Windows 10 hands-down when it comes to user experience). Anyway, being the dumb kid I was, I constantly ate food around it. Crumbs got into the trackpad, the trackpad eventually cracked due to mould and stuff, the battery eventually died (so it needed to be constantly plugged in), and...yeah, the laptop ended up dead. Oh well. My second laptop was one my high school gave its students in Year 10 (2013), and it was a Macbook Air. Once students graduated, we could keep the laptops if we wanted, and I did; it lasted until 2017, when the speakers died in the middle of a university semester. After that occurred, I got a Macbook Pro again, which now had that newfangled 'Touch Bar' thing that...is superfluous, honestly. Still use it to this day, but if I had a spare AU$5000, I'd definitely replace it with something new. ...Though, I'd also like a replacement for the Lenovo Legion Y530 I'm using right now, for both gaming/casual use and for Windows-only university tasks...if I did have a spare couple-thousand bucks, I'd have to weigh the options...better gaming laptop, or newer macOS laptop. Better gaming, or newer macOS...hmm...real tough decision.

    Two quick things come to mind, one is tin solder whiskers. That is a major killer of older electronics. As the tin in the solder degrades from white tin to black or grey tin it crystallizes and forms threads or whiskers protruding from the surface of the solder joint or puddle. The whiskers are conductive and will short out components when they get long enough to arc over or when they break off and migrate to a spot where they can. Not good, Murray! Second thought, I’m surprised you didn’t get a hold of Fran from “Fran’s Lab”. With her work on the Apollo flight computer and such I kinda figured she would show up. Her main gig is historical electronics.

Funny enough later he gave this mother board to me, (and some other mother boards and other stuff) so now it is in my basement waiting for cleaning and sentence if i'm gonna keep it for usage as computer or source of electronic components. .

    We collect consoles here from the 3rd generation all the way up to the 9th. We also are working on building a 90's themed arcade complete with stand up coin-op cabs. I have thought about building an old PC for some vintage gaming as well. I'm thinking 486DX2@66Mhz w/8 to 16Mb of RAM/DOS 6.0/Win 95 and maybe an old 3DFX *Voodo card. Coincidentally, this was my very first PC build in 1994 for Doom (I didn't have Win 95 at the time and only 8Mb of RAM). At any rate, aside from these issues listed there is another silent killer lurking in even the most current electronic devices. I'm talking about electron buildup that occurs naturally when you use a computer/console/Teddy Ruxpin and the like. Unfortunately, there is no real viable way to really flush a machine of these electrons. Every console and PC is essentially a ticking timebomb and one day...no prompt, black screen, BSOD, RLOD, YLOD...you get it. You would think someone would have designed a method or tool to draw out excess electrons but at this point...nope. Lastly, as a console/arcade collector I have dealt with capacitors many, many times. If you have any experience with NEC's consoles released in the states you will know what I'm talking about. The US Turbo Duo has the worst capacitors I have ever witnessed and if you ever get one...change the caps immediately. I don't care if it looks super clean it's only a matter of time before the motherboard is covered. I think NEC of America knew they were loosing the 16-bit war badly and didn't care. They probably thought the player at best would use it for maybe a year before jumping ship. After a year of solid use those caps are going to blow.

  • Sinn0100


    2 bulan yang lalu

    @mollycrime Okay...so I learned this many years ago while I was in college. Honestly I don't quite understand it entirely myself but...all electronics hold a minute charge even while unplugged. Some hold a lot of electricity and can actually kill you even if unplugged for years (CRT monitors). At some point these electrons move or jump to other parts of the device. I have heard them called "bad electrons" before. I don't know if it's like a continual use that wears out the device or if it exposes said circuits to high heat permanently damaging them. Maybe it's a build up of static electricity that causes this. Essentially at some point an electronic device will fail and there's nothing we can do about it...that's how it was explained to me. I have often wondered why a device or method hasn't been created to eliminate this problem. Mind you, a problem I didn't know existed until that class. I'm...I guess mentally prepared for the eventuality of my electronics dying due to this. I have pondered on what a device that draws out excess electrons from a device would look like and how it could be applied (since that class). I don't know...

    Recently I worked on someone's laptop that acted completely dead, no power at all- but there was a barely audible "click". Opened it up and found that a small rectangular ceramic capacitor had a crack in it, and every time you pushed the power button it would throw sparks. Started at one or two. Then it became a shower of sparks. Then the capacitor shattered and fell off. Best part, because there were multiple capacitors working in parallel in that part of the board...the laptop started working again and booted to Windows without so much as a hiccup.

    You forget a very important cause of failure in computers and that is bad circuit design or faulty ic chips, sometimes they just wear over time and the faulty things just give up. Commodore computers are plagued with this problems. Other culprits are bad quality welding material (are you listening HP?) or thermal paste just drying up.

Okay buuuuut why and that is my issue to learn I need to know answers of why this that and the other which seem insignificant but my brain only retains it once it understands the reasoning. Thanks for that one. I now get it. I mean repairing electronics does not require knowing these things just replacing parts most of the time but still.

    I used to slap the back of my laptop screen when it was running too slow or had an error. I ended up slapping my eMachines one too many times and the display glitched the heck out. We had to fork out over $100 to buy a new screen, which I paid for by doing chores, picking up dog poo in particular. I eventually got enough money to buy the new screen and replace my laptop's broken screen, and my eMachines still works fairly well to this day, but nevertheless, I've been way more careful with my electronics since then.

    Early production runs of the original Apple II also had a similar design flaws; no fan & no case vents. Later revisions added case vents. If you ran the monitor or TV on top of the system, the power supply burned itself up. Mine was covered under warranty & after replacing it I only ran it with the case cover off, with no problems. The good thing was the machine ran totally silent. A good example of rushing a product to market & letting the early end-users do the testing.

    I generally like the 8bit guy (not the IBM video)... but warping into foil is absolutely no good idea! Over time it will stick to the plastic of the computers! For example: I have a Commodore 8250LP that was covered by a plastic bag - now the plastic bag is part of the top... I have some C64 that have "burnmarks" on them... like somebody took a hot soldering iron... Was the cable that layed under the C64... And if the first attempt at repairing a C64 is to replace the Caps before having a look at the voltages etc.: this person has absolutely no idea of repairs... Because too high voltage out of the power-supply kills computers as well...

    My most humorous repair was for a major manufacturer. I worked in IT maintenance for a company. A user complained that anything he typed came up as random characters on screen. I went and retrieved the keyboard/computer for testing. His assessment was repeatable. There was no obvious reason. I swapped keyboards to see if that stopped the gibberish. It did. Keyboard problem. Went to plug the problem keyboard into another machine and noticed a switch on the bottom of the keyboard with three positions marked simply as reset/lock/map. I discovered in the service manual that if set to map, you would press a key and then the next key you pressed was assigned to the first. So if you pressed the A key then pressed the P key the A key acted as the P key. Worse, until the switch on the bottom was locked, this kept reassigning keys. So you would press the A key (nothing would be displayed), then the P key (displayed). They you would press the A key again (no display) and press another key, say J (displayed) and not that key was assigned to A. The mapping never ended until you locked the mapping. Fortunately, you could switch to reset, which used a ROM original key set and also copied it to the map. The keyboard did work, but it was decided that the switch was a user hazard not worth the trouble. My boss told me to set it to reset and super glue it there and then put a chassis seal over it. so that no one would seem curious. Problem solved.

    Back in the very late 1980's, I was working at Dell here in the UK, reworking motherboards that failed their final test. The commonest problems I saw with these brand new motherboards were lifted/broken tracks. On a freshly printed board. Quality control was virtually non-existent. Have recapped a few Dell Optiplexes in my time and all I can say is, NEVER buy a Dell computer, it's a false economy - they're predictably shit.
