Overview


Practical TV and Video Systems Repair is a comprehensive text for second year electronics students on the theoretical design and practical service techniques for video electronics such as TVs, VCRs, satellite TV receivers and other video devices. The entire text uses an input-process-output model to discuss the details of electronic circuitry. This approach creates a higher level of understanding by consistently linking theory, application and troubleshooting. As such, the text, as well as each individual chapter, moves from basic theories to practical applications to troubleshooting techniques. Providing students with a complete and consistent approach to learning, each chapter outlines objectives, discusses theory and practice, and arranges learning checks in the form of review questions, service calls, test equipment primers and end-of-chapter summaries.
