Avoid Costly Electronics Repair Bills With a Simple Troubleshooting Technique Anyone Can Perform

Share Article

No engineering degree is required to solve many of the problems that commonly cause failures in today's electronic gadgets.

The next time the computer crashes or the VCR flashes 12:00 A.M., don't reach for the phone to call a service technician, reach for the plug instead. In his article "Troubleshooting Electronics," power supply expert Jerrold Foutz demonstrates how a simple troubleshooting process can correct many common consumer electronics failures. The article is available on Foutz's Power Supply Design Blog at http://www.smpstech.com/mtblog/trouble_shooting_electronics.html.

In "Troubleshooting Electronics," Foutz explains how and why this method succeeds. "It's easy, it works most of the time, and best of all, it's free," said Foutz in a telephone interview. This is one of the useful bits of information found at SMPS Technology ( http://www.smpstech.com ), a website for power supply designers and users.

Foutz, owner of SMPS Technology, delivers plenty of common-sense advice for power supply designers. He publishes the online SMPS Technology Knowledge Base—a comprehensive resource dedicated to switching-mode power supply design. The site offers a wealth of information and detailed discussions of power supply design problems, presented in his unique Problem, Relevance, Solvability, Solution format. The Website author identifies and discusses each problem, applies a relevance test, discusses solvability options, and provides references for finding a solution.
