This month's theme is Simple Electronic Repairs and comes from fvan . The idea is to repair a device that is malfunctioning instead of throwing it away or buying a replacement. Simple electronic repairs is good first step before tackling a full blown electronic projects on your own. This is a good opportunity to start tinkering with an electronic gadget you love but might be missing because its no longer working.
As fvan points out, simple electronic repairs doesn't need to be complicated, such as repairing a faulty switch and will give you insights into some troubleshooting techniques. He uses a malfunctioning Xbox guitar (pictured right) as an example. One of the buttons would only allow you to go up instead of up or down, seriously limiting your options of what you could rock to. Rather then throwing the guitar away and getting a new one he opened it up to discover a reed switch was used for each position. One of these switches was constantly "ON", even in idle position, due to the magnet and switch being too close to each other. By gently bending the legs of the reed switch a little further away, it created enough distance to move set it as "OFF" in the idle position.
