    Default need some help on taking a part and reassembling electronics

    Is anybody else familiar with taking things apart, looking at them writng down "what's is this and that", and putting the thing back together. :-?

    Well I'm a little stumped. On what I am doing.
    One. a Philips CD Player
    Two. A Magnovox VCR/DVD
    Three. A computer, it's monitor, and a couple other things.

    Don't open a monitor unless you know what you are doing. It's extremely dangerous.

    I don't know if you get what I mean. High voltage isn't something to play with. :-? In fact, if you toched the wrong thing (even with the monitor unplugged) you could easily die.

    If I recall correctly, Infoxx used to work as an electrician. He'll probably tell you the same thing.

    As the man says - it's not worth messing with it - little odds and ends, radios, rc cars, **** like that - yeah - rip it apart.

    I took apart my rc R2D2 when I was little to see how he worked. (strangely there wasn't a very small midget inside!)

    Monitors are a different ball game, though - full of nasty stuff, not even counting the electrical dangers.

    yeah i say leave it be,i used to work in a tv/vid/satelitte repairs store ,we allways had fun with new recruits by chargin up a line out tranny (which was the storage area for ac to dc conversion plus step ups) so in comes 240V @13amps to the high tension 10kv dc 1.5amps,when the guy picked it up and ooops touched the wrong part,blam that huge store of dc would throw them across the room.

    the moral here is dont do it,it looks fun untill that point comes when u mess with something that looks harmless but is really a human killer.

    You were crazy? :roll: :-? I just only hope the guys were correctly isolated and all that. If a few Amperes go past your heart you'll taste fibrilation.

    No! the monitor or computer equipment I am going to be using is nothing new! This is from my first computer a year ago and I still have everything but the CPU.

    The monitor, the printer, the keyboard, and the speakers. I'm just going to tinker around, study, see what I can and can not do to it.

    See if I could use some of the parts in creating something new and unique.

    If I could do the same thing my best friends Kris Keith did for his room.
    He took a Boss speaker system and wired his neon lights and sound equipment to his computer together. And it all worked! And Chris Seegers, Daniel McCall, David Ray, David Goodwin, and Robert Collins they all take computer apart different computers and create something with the parts.

    I wan't to see if I can do it. :-?
