Product Description


'Robin Pain has st down in words (almost entirely free of maths) the experience of many years practical work on audio, radio, TV and computer equipment.'
Electronics Education, Spring 1997

From the Publisher

Simple circuit examples are used to illustrate principles and concepts fundamental to the process of fault finding. This is not a book of theory. It is a book of practical tips, hints, and rules of thumb, all of which will equip the reader to tackle any job, whether it is fixing a TV, improving the sound from a hi-fi, or locating the fault in a piece of process equipment. You may be an engineer or technician in search of information and guidance, a college student, a hobbyist building a project from a magazine, or simply a keen, self-taught amateur who is interested in electronic fault finding but finds books on the subject too mathematical or specialized. This book is written entirely for a fault finder using only the basic fault-finding equipment: a digital multimeter and an oscilloscope. The treatment is non-mathematical (apart from Ohm's Law) and all jargon is strictly avoided. Robin Pain was originally trained to service color TV, and has worked as an industrial fault finder for manufacturers of mobile radio, audio equipment, microcomputers and medical equipment. He has lectured at home and abroad on microcomputer fault finding.

First Sentence
Microprocessor systems and analogue circuits are entirely different, forcing this book to be split into two parts, but there is a strong relationship between the two from the fault finder's point of view. Read the first page

Interesting but.... Nov. 27 2006
By Russ Lavergne - Published on
Format: Paperback
I have read and re-read this book and find it interesting but it lacks proper outlines and steps to follow. Shows some unique insights but doesn't give enough examples and step by step procedures to follow when troubleshooting. Overall it is a good book to have but I don't think it is worth the list price of $47.00 or even half that. I put the value around $14.00.
