    What would YOU find valuable in an industry trade association?

    We don't really have a board repair/device repair industry trade association. Let's say we did. What would be necessary for it to be valuable to you? What should it provide?

    What happened?

    I couldn't import that from vbulletin. It took me about 5 hours of setting up to get that, and I couldn't import it. :( I do want to bring it back at some point. The real issue was how incomplete it was, and also that Vimeo told me I just hit my storage limit. I have about 1000 videos I need to...

    A1398 2013-2014 LCD Replacement Parts. Any good reputable suppliers?

    I have not been able to buy that since 2015. I stocked up on 300 of them and used them all up a long time ago. Now you are pretty much stuck looking for used assemblies. Always remember to make sure your customer knows why you are limited in your options to help them, how the manufacturer uses...

    Cancelling Sub

    I am going to be adding buttons for this to make it more obvious over the next few days,work has been busy & slammed. You click your name in the upper right, then click account upgrades and cancel from there. The issue is that even though it successfully cancels it returns a dumb error that I'd...

    New signups troubleshooting - how to sign up to post, resolving issues, etc.

    Welcome to the new forum! :) Over the past five months, dealing with vbulletin/paypal has been a nightmare. The payment method between vbulletin/PayPal wasn't working - the IPN was trying to refer to an incorrect URL. vBulletin was passing the wrong information to Paypal. As a result, it seems...

    My apologies for the downtime!

    I am very sorry the migration led to downtime. Unfortunately it had to be done. vbulletin had been messing with subscriptions for a while and even with patching the old forum was hacked into twice. I've been going back and forth with them since December and there is zero support from them, even...

    How much to charge as a flat rate

    What part of Chicago? I think somewhere between $250-$425 depending on model is fine. there are people doing it for $79-$110 but for the most part that seems to scream of a lack of reputation, or just senseless devaluing of the craft for newer devices, especially complex board issues. In an...

    vbulletin migration

    Migration is all done, my apologies for some posts disappearing. It had to be done with the site being hacked every other day. This is hosted & maintained by vbulletin themselves, so downtime should be gone for good. Thanks for understanding!

    vbulletin migration

    Due to the CBC piece & youtube popularity, people are trying to hack the site constantly. I am switching every site to separate hosts and vbulletin to vbulletin cloud w/ phone support, so now there will be a team of people ensuring that the site never goes down. There may be a little...

    820-3332 GPU IG0R Sensor Error

    What does R5410/U5410/R5413 area look like? I am guessing C5413 leaking and pulling the value down. Duke is on vacation and I got a concussion so replies will be slow for a while until he comes back or my dizziness/constant headache goes away.

    MUX not sendng BKLT PWM

    If SMC_LID is 3.4v, and you resetting PRAM doesn't fix it, you have two choices. 1) Replace the mux on a board that will be back with a dead GPU in 1 month, when they will ask for warranty on your "failed logic board repair" that you can't provide. Make no money, deal with raging customer. 1...
