    All part of the glorious experience.

    Going to shotgun "recap" the next one?

    It could be much worse. I spent weeks poring over a TV trying to find a loose solder joint. Lightly rap the flyback with a plastic screwdriver and the TV would come to life for a while. It had to be a cold joint on the board. But I couldn't find one anywhere. So I gave up and replaced the flyback. An irreplaceable component went up in flames. When it did, the smoke made the cold solder joint on a nearby component stick out like a sore thumb. So now I've got a dead TV that I spent $200 in parts on, plus an incorrect flyback that just looks right.

    I'd be inclined to really clean up those grounds and apply some dielectric grease.

    I have fixed at least one power supply by randomly hitting a bunch of solder joints on the bottom side of the circuit board. Stupid, but worked great afterwards.
