If you are purchasing a consult, I’ll certainly do my best to assist you, but you need to keep the following in mind.
I don’t know if you have tried to help an elderly family member fix a computer problem over the phone, but it can be one of the most challenging tasks humans are faced with. So it is with electronics repairs. The person doing the repairs needs the right tools, parts, diagnostic techniques, test gear, service data, etc. In most cases, it’s simply not sensible for owners to attempt to repair their equipment.
But, if you simply can’t bring equipment to me, I’m happy to discuss the problems and provide some useful advice that might get you on the right track. Simply make a donation via the Contact page for a brief chat. For a more detailed discussion, purchase a consult block, again, via the contact page.
