A very useful book with valuable tips for repairing electronic appliances and components. Would be 5 stars were it not for the sometimes strange language Jay Geier uses.

The book itself seems to be fine reading but the printing has huge problems.
The cutting is wrong most pages are stuck together !

5.0 étoiles sur 5 I finally get it... 23 avril 2011
Par Amazon Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com

This is, hands down, the best book I have ever read on understanding electronics. I've had college and post-graduate courses that taught me how to analyze circuits and figure out what voltages, currents, resistances, etc. were at certain points. That was all well and good, but totally useless for anything that I wanted to do on my work bench.

In reality, what I needed was a holistic approach that narrated the circuit and the signals that are manipulated. I NEVER thought of circuits this way and the author was able to explain that the active elements are the players in the story and everything else is a supporting cast.

I could read a schematic, but I couldn't understand why the components were there. I know that a capacitor doesn't pass DC, but now I see that when placed in the circuit, it acts as a DC filter to remove noise before passing a signal to the next stage.

On top of all that, I realized that every circuit has a voltage that is used as a signal. Signal analysis, analog and digital, seemed like a very advanced topic that I only understood through major concepts (linearity, aliasing, etc). Now I realize that a battery and a light bulb has a signal just as a digital video camera does. One is just more complex.

Bottom line, this is the book that I couldn't put down...and it is about some of the driest material you can find. It is written in a fun and enjoyable fashion. Every page had an "AH HA!" moment and I am much more confident in my electronics hobby and profession.

I cannot recommend this book enough and I would pay triple just for the section where the author walks through a couple sample circuits, describes each component's function, and what would happen if that component failed.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Great Hands-On Approach 5 juin 2016
Par frankp93 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Commentaire d‘un membre du Club des Testeurs ( De quoi s'agit-il? )
I have the first edition and don’t detect a lot of difference – a chapter on tracking down less-common parts including automotive, some additional information on ‘breaking into’ AC Adaptors, consolidation in the table of contents, perhaps some updated/additional images (still all black and white)

Regardless I love this book and Geier’s entire approach. He still lives and dies by his oscilloscope (and I’m still checking out deals online). But this is about hands-on, in-the-trenches repair work that emphasizes safety (Geier’s formulated his approach in the new edition as ATE – Always Test Everything).

Geier has a great sense of humor and the writing is lively and fun. He keeps the schematics and graphs to a minimum and emphasizes common-sense observation and developing a diagnostic mindset.

The layout of the book is logical and its real strength: Geier first describes tools of the trade and setting up a workspace, safety, and developing a philosophy of diagnosing problems. He delves into using test equipment (leaning heavily on his favorite oscilloscope) followed by informative walkthroughs of components that various electronics devices are made of: op-amps, resistors, caps, circuit boards, jacks and controls, etc...

Geier spends considerable time describing how to safely ‘break into’ and disassemble repair items, rather than assuming, like other books, you can figure that part out. As someone who always seems to wind up with leftover screws after reassembling, I appreciate that a lot.

The bulk of the book teaches how to trace signals, how to isolate components and how to repair once you’ve found the root cause.

Geier first teaches you principles and techniques that apply to any device. Only afterwards does his drill down into specifics of DVD Players, VCRs, Earphones, Hard Drives, LCD panels, turntables, smartphones, mp3 players and more. Some of these are more practical than others (hard drives?) but if you can handle what Geier presents in this book you should feel comfortable with consumer electronics devices across the board.

I wouldn’t recommend Geier’s book to absolute electronics beginners. If you’ve never held a soldering iron and have no clue how electricity and electronic devices work you’re better off going elsewhere for the basics.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Good perspective on electronic repairs 16 février 2016
Par Golfer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché Achat vérifié
Two things at the outset: 1) I've written 18 programming texts so I know what it's like writing a technical book which makes my perspective likely different from most readers, and 2) I've been a licensed amateur radio operator for over 60 years, and that's why I bought this book...I want to start fixing my own equipment.

Pros:
I know how hard it is to discuss technical material in an understandable, yet interesting way. The author has done a good job of that. He's honest about the tools it takes to really fix something beyond a simple fuse replacement. Chapter 6 has some guidelines on using those tools.

Chapter 4 is a great chapter on how to approach the problem of fixing electronic equipment. The Zen of electronic repair is quite similar to that of debugging software, so I felt right at home with that.

There's a chapter devoted to various electronic components you'll encounter and the common uses for each. This chapter is much better than most I've seen.

Chapters 10, 11, and 14 are the best chapters from a use perspective, in that it defines the major components of most electronic systems and then tells you how to track down a problem. Chapter 14 breaks these techniques down further by devices (e.g., audio system, camcorder, computer, etc.) I think these are well done.

Cons:
He starts the book with several stories of repairs that he had to do and how he "sleuthed" them to a solution. These stories were both informative and entertaining...not an easy combination to pull off. Alas, there were too few of these. His knowledge and experience are obvious from his writing, but the stories were enjoyable to read while learning. I would have liked to see more.

I was hoping for a table of problems, and the associated method of attack on the problem (e.g., measuring voltages, injecting an audio or RF signal at such-and-such a point), and the likely culprit of the problem. There is a lot similar to that in narrative form, but a summary of issues pointing to details in the chapters would have been great. In ham radio, there are many things that can go wrong, and a table of problems/solutions like you sometimes see in an operator's manual, would have been very useful. Again, probably more for my needs than most readers, but the book fell a little short of expectations because something like it was missing.

Obviously, I enjoyed the book and felt that I learned things in the process.

4.0 étoiles sur 5 How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic by Michael Jay Geier 3 janvier 2013
Par CDP and his Amazon Habit of purchases! ! - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I have enjoyed this fix-it book on electronics since I ordered it in 2012. I've learned quite a bit from reading this book and feel it is worth the money I paid for it and am glad I purchased it. I read something in this book regularly and it will stay close at hand near my work bench area, BUT . . . No, you won't be able to fix electronics if you have this on your book shelf. If you work at it, have the background knowledge and the right tools you can learn how to attempt a troubleshooting fix for a lot of the electronic components of Audio and standard electronics, mostly older pieces of equipment. Don't think that someone who doesn't know electronics basics or has mastered the knowledge base of the technician will be turned into a competent electronics technician after scanning through this book, cause it just won't happen. Good technicians are developed over time, with training and an urge to learn this trade and skill. The newer micro electonic components, surface mount components and microprocessor based systems are not the standadrd components discussed, but like Automobiles today, one who is not an auto mechanic, just doesn't work on these new products like we did in the past. If you are an electronics buff, enjoy playing with electronics projects and components, you have learned to use a good soldering tool and can unsolder and replace components, then with some effort you will become more competent to work on your own electronics units if you dare, with this book . I will not in my life ever be the troublshooting "tough dog" go to guy for fixing the toughest problems in electronic problems, you might, but I won't. He is most likely one of the best out there and this book is proof to that with it containg so very much on this subject. You should have this book as reference. I recommend this book.

I would recommend this book to anyone just starting to repair electronics and even suggest it to many who are currently working in the field.

Mr Geier's book covers a wide spectrum of topics - from basic electronics, components, tools of the trade, and tips and techniques for troubleshooting problems. I would have loved to had a book like this when I was a kid.

I was someone who loved to tinker with things when I was young. Few things made me happy as when someone gave me something 'broken' to play with. Usually it didn't take much to fix the items. I think I may have learned as much during those early years as I did later in my electronic classes in college. College teaches you a lot of things about electronics - mostly theory and focuses mainly on the circuits. What it doesn't teach you is a lot that I learned back when I was a kid. How to pull things apart - in a way that you can later put it back together. How to diagnose mechanical problems and how to fix them.

The author has written this book in a very casual conversational fashion - it's almost as if a experienced senior technician has sat down and is explaining things to someone new to the profession. I found it very easy to read and understand and I believe that a novice would too.

I'd like to mention, I noticed when I bought this book that it was published under the TAB division of McGraw-Hill. TAB is (or maybe was) the publishing house for a line of technical books. They put out books for just about everything, electronics, woodworking, vehicle repair, refrigeration.. Over the course of time from the late 70's to the 90's I probably bought over a hundred of their books (and still have most of them today). The books were really well written and a great way to get up to speed on a technical subject. Mr. Geier's book, "How to Diagnose and Fix Everything Electronic" is a worthy addition to the TAB line of books.
