  1. Hi I would like to know what course, or how to learn to repair
    Electronic equipment to component level.

    Such as TV'S motherboards, dvd's etc...

    There is a City and guilds course:- Electrical and Electronics Servicing -
    City and Guilds Level 2 which might teach you this I am not sure, whenever I
    call the colleges up there are not familiar with this question

    Any advice would be appreciated.

    Wherabouts are you ? The College of North West London runs a number of
    detailed component level courses, managed by a guy called Fawzi Ibrahim

    If you call them, they should know the answers to your questions.

    The way most people do it is to get some broken stuff and just start
    playing with it. There's no shortage of free broken electronics you can
    pick up, you'll need some decent general electronics knowledge before
    you start trying to fix things though. It's the sort of thing you have
    to really love doing, you won't make a living in it if you're starting
    out from scratch.

    Yours is a noble quest. Taking this path will provide you with a
    lifetime of interesting, puzzling, and confounding projects.

    You need a sound understanding of basic electronics first (Ohm's law,
    elementary circuits and how they work).

    If you can't find the right course, you could devote your spare time to
    tinkering with circuits and fixing broken electronics. It would be a
    very big plus if you could find a mentor (an experienced tech or
    engineer) who could look at it with you and show you how to troubleshoot
    and diagnose. (It's one thing to read it in a book, but entirely
    different to see how someone does it before your eyes.)
