Thanks for sharing, I love youuu !!!
Very good, 4 years ago when I started college I would make my beer and pizza money soldering students laptop power jacks and stuff like that haha
girl.. you’re talking more than dave jones 😀 but loved the video, keep them coming 😉
Probably the main thing I find breaking on modern electronics is pc mounted jacks. On old amps, say Fender point to point wired guitar amps, the jacks were on a panel with wires coming off of them and the wires absorbed plug movement. On modern stuff the pc mounted jacks develop cracks. Typical examples are headphone and USB jacks. Happens left and right.
3 thumbs up fb yl
I love Ada’s side comments. One can learn so much.
90% of problems with electronics is the power supply.
Lead free solder adds to this problem. Its not flexible and brittle. I always reflow with leaded solder when I repair electronics.
Baking soda works well removing battery corrosion, but for consumer electronics, IPA or Alcohol works too. I wouldn’t use sandpaper. NO
This is wonderful! Marker on the power icon really worked well. Next time you might be able to explain how you knew where to solder second end of the repair wire.
What camera you are using for overhead
Gosh, I love your face and brain.
Is this a one off or a new series? Would love to see it become a series…
I love this one. I’d love to see more like this!
Almost all guitar pedals are 9v centre negative
Booster thingy? whaaaa………..mmmmm.
I am pretty surprised you don’t have any vinegar… I use vinegar for cooking and for cleaning and even right now I have a fruit fly trap set up made with apple cider vinegar. For cleaning, I like that you don’t have to worry as much about it possibly destroying color like with bleach and it’s not too harsh. For harsh jobs, I actually have a big bottle of 30% concentrated hydrochloric acid… lets just say that makes cleaning the tub a breeze.
The tip negative is probably to sell power supplies.
Had fish tank LEDs lying around useless because they stopped working. This video motivated me to finally see what the problem was and it was just corrosion on the Ac-DC converter plug. Now it’s fixed!! Thank you so much!! :DDD

I still have an old boombox that I had to re-solder the RCA jacks on several times because of the stress of plugging and unplugging things.
Great show. You should have used some hot glue to reinforce. Don’t know why you were against it. It’s temporary and adds some strength. True that epoxy would be best, but in a hurry or if you think you may want to take it back apart… hot glue.
What about baking soda and water paste …or is that for lead acid only?
what sources do you recommend for a beginner to learn electronics repair
I had to fix an old vhs recorder and that wouldn’t work with the case open then I spotted a light sensor covered it with bluetack and it worked, then I fixed the dirty tape head.
You said you might not use hot-melt glue to support the jack after the repair. I use it quite often for just this sort of thing.
why not fix the center ground while it’s open
You might have reversed the connections while you were at it 😉
I love this topic. I learn so much by watching people trouble shoot issues. My only comment is that it was hard to hear Phil’s reading the questions. Thanks again.
What video mixer do you use?
Funny that it was labeled broken. O the irony. 🙂
I found center Negative on Portable Cassette Players,Casio Keyboards and old electronics
Thanks for sharing this!
At 1.4 volts the batteries are questionable. Definitely not fresh. If I had a non functional product, especially one that is a power hog, I’ll toss those batteries.
This was so cool. You should pick stuff up at the thrift store and keep this going as a series!
Great vid. Thank you. College teaches how to design & build but so few oportunities to learn fixing. No wonder it’s a "throw-away" world. Can’t count the times I said "I can fix that" only to see a quite puzzled face and be asked "… why? Don’t bother. I’ll just buy a new one. "
Can I make a suggestion? Repeat the question on-mic so the viewers don’t have to reverse-engineer it.
Had a Toshiba laptop years ago with this problem. We used the laptop for programing Motorola radios and adjusting the soft pots in them. Took less than 15min to troubleshoot and solder the plug. Took all day to figure out where a plastic brace went, that fell out when I opened.
Two thumbs up!
Fixing household electronics is the best idea you’ve had in awhile run with it!
cool video, any tips on how to get my feet wet to prepare for electrical engineering. Im pretty much a noob, but its inspiring to see other females in the field 🙂
Thanks so much for this video! Another reason I love team adafruit! I have that exact label machine and I never thought the polarity could be backwards since as you said most everything on the planet is positive on the inside. and yes that thing eats batteries like a hummer eats gas. I believe the PS i found was a 3A supply, so that would explain it 🙂
Negative center power plugs are usually found on guitar pedals, too.
wow someone else that fixes things. You could of also used baking soda to neutralize the acid
I learned alot from this video!!! This inspired me to have a crack at an old remote with some broken pads where a cap used to be. I bodged in some wires and the cap and it WORKED! Next I moved on to my kid’s christmas toy that was already busted. I fixed that aswell! Yay!
You can also use a scouring pad to scrape the rust off of contacts.
