In this guide you will find selected electronic circuits, ways to troubleshoot them, and known component failures. Some actual case-history problems will also be given. In some TV circuits a photo of the picture symptoms will be provided. Voltage, resistance, and oscilloscope waveforms will be included where applicable.
Included in this guide you will find tube type, transistor, IC, microprocessor, analog and digital logic circuits for various consumer electronic devices. Old and new circuits will be found along with the types of electronic equipment in which the circuits are found.
The electronic circuit reference data in this guide will give you up-to-date troubleshooting and theory of operation information to assist you in keeping on top of today's advanced space age electronic systems.
In all, 30 years [as of March 1981] of electronic troubleshooting experience and know how has been collected and presented in this reference guide for your convenience and enlightenment.
