    Default YouTube TV Fix

    I came home for lunch, sat down to watch the news and thereís no picture on my TV. Got sound. No picture. So I open up Amazon and the closest replacement sized TV is $400. I have a little TV from the campground, so I decided to wait, and just change it out with the mini. After work, I swapped them out and took the bad TV to the workshop. I took a picture of the label and hi up google thinking there might be a backlight that could be swapped out. But I find itís an LED TV. Thereís about 30 hits all saying the power supply connector is a carpy design, and the solder connections corrode and fail. I took the back off and low and behold, same thing. So a little contact cleaner, some flux, and a dab of fresh solder later, and Iím glad I didnít pull the trigger on the replacement TV. All fixed. In fact, it looks better than it ever has!

    Well, it’s had some negative effects. Saving $400, is like money in the pocket right? So I’m thinking a second Ender 5 Pro. I’m getting told that’s not a fair trade for my magical DIYC learned closet TV repairman earnings. Such are the battles...
