Trying to repair a Samsung plasma TV I scored cheaply
Has sound and changes channels but there's no picture, no menus or anything.
Had a look and can't see any capacitors with their tops bulging out, tested the fuses, looked for burn marks/cracked solder joints
I'm not sure what to look for next..
I have mechanical electrical background knowledge so I can use a multimeter, i just don't know how and what to test on a TV.
Anyone have any tips?
Model is PS50C550GIF, Samsung plasma

Hey /diy/, /an/on here,
First time posting here, so please spare me any flames if i do something wrong.
I want to build a computer, so i've googled it and got the basics of it. (parts im gonna need and the kind of machine i want to build)
I figure im gonna base everything off the motherboard since everything has to be configured to it. I want to build a computer for general word processing and web surfing. I also want eventually get into video editing, but nothing to fancy. I just want to be able to film my animals and put them up somewhere like youtube, maybe make a few care vids.
So as far as the motherboard goes im thinking about a middle-of-the-line motherboard with an AMD processor since im not doing anything that's gonna need a higher powered CPU.
So my questions are:
-How much RAM and memory am I looking at?
-How am I interpreting the specs that are listed with the motherboard:
>"GIGABYTE GA-990FXA-UD3 AM3+ AMD 990FX SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard
> "AMD 990FX"
> "4×240pin DDR3 2000(O.C.)/1866/1600/1333/1066"
So is there anything Im missing or do you all have any tips?

Hey /diy/, I'm having problems with my dremel 200.
When I load in one of the small engraving bits, after say 15-20 seconds of use, when I turn the dremel off, the bit promptly falls out. Happens no matter how much I tighten the collet.
I've also been having trouble getting used to the cutting bits. The dremel spins to the right, and I'm right handed, so usually when I'm cutting I'm doing it in the same direction that the dremel spins in which can make it hard to control. Tips?

There's this costume contest on Saturday in my town.
First place gets 500$, second 300$, and third 100$.
Me and my friends are thinking of going in, however we are stuck on ideas.
The only rule for the contest is that you can't spend more than 20$ making it.
Also, you get more points if you can really get into the role of whatever you're ''cosplaying'' as.
Now, I was thinking of being a crazy scientist, I already have half the things I need, however, I'm stuck on how to make the costume look like something that someone would look at and say ''Shit, that's a good crazy scientist.''

Hello, /DIY/, been quite some time. I'd like to ask you if anyone knows any resources of cheap counterfeit goods? I'm looking for a shell to put some orthodynamic drivers in. Right now, the best option i've found is to buy an ESW9 fake from taobao but that would mean that i'd have to laquir the thing to make it look good.
I'm looking for a wider assortment of sites that offer fakes that have a good hang on the original form of the product, but perhaps they dont exactly replicate the function.
Ideally, i'd like an ATH-WS99 as the thing i transplant the drivers into.
