When I discovered the Pirate Bay website, I was opened up to a world of things that I had been missing out on. You can find just about anything on the website. I’ve found many books that I’ve been interested in reading, but couldn’t find at the library. I’ve found old games that I used to play but couldn’t get my hands on anymore because there were no more copies of them in stores. I’ve even found mix tapes from some of my favorite musicians.. The best thing that I’ve found on the website is a manual for an old television.
Most people would think that an old television manual wouldn’t be something to get excited about, but this was no ordinary manual. This manual contained instructions on how to take apart the television. Again, a normal person wouldn’t care about something like this, but to me, it meant that I could try my hand at repairing an old television. I have a television that has problems with the images it displays. At the top of the screen, the display is folded over, leaving off the heads of people and in many cases the scores on sports games. There’s also a section of the screen that is discolored.
Using the manual, I disassembled the television and started looking at the parts for anything that needed to be replaced. The manual mentioned that the problems I was experiencing would be commonly linked to blown capacitors in the television. A blown capacitor can be identified by swelling sides and a dark brown X at the top. I found quite a few of these. I had to order replacement parts online and put them into the circuit board of the television. I reassembled the television and crossed my fingers. The television turned back on without a problem.
