Results of 9/14 Live Stream

Yours truly as imagined by the MidJourney AI.

[So I wrote this, left in draft mode and just found it. I don’t even… so here it is.]

The video on the CD player will be coming out soon. It’s fixed! I honestly think two adjacent components were swapped around causing the no play problem. After done I had no shorts and it works in my stack now. Win 🏆

Still working on Daniel’s TV. Replaced two shorted SMD diodes so far (diff types ofc) and now the main electrolytic cap is dead shorted and it wasn’t before. I got to bust out the hot air gun which is fun.

The boombox is gonna be more interesting. This is the Panasonic from the video (and I have the service manual now!) cassette playback works but intermittently fails. There’s a bad connection or solder joint someplace. There are broken plastic parts that I *might* be able to reproduce. Oh and the right channel doesn’t work at all. I want to get it done before another video on this one.

Be sure to check out the website and I’m on the big social networks, except that one that used to be a bird. I mean technically I am, but….meh.

I’m streaming LIVE on Twitch and YouTube Tuesdays and Thursdays at 12 noon central until about 4 or so. (Twitch and YouTube)

And if I can get the retro stream setup working, I’ll be streaming retro games and stuff on Friday and Saturday nights from 6pm central. (Twitch) (all streams) (repairs only)

My equipment is outdated by years, but if you’re interested:
