As Geier explains, the days when analog parts drifted out of tune due to wear, weather, or accident are mostly gone, and circuit and system designers have spent the last 30 years working to stamp out the influence of individual component variations. When modern devices fail, they fail hard. Once you decide to take the plunge, he has a shopping list for your workbench—a soldering iron, desoldering wick, multimeter, oscilloscope , and so on—but he also reminds you to have stacks of plastic cups and trays on hand to hold all the screws, clips, and other bits from each successive stage of disassembly. He recommends having a digital camera handy, to record how everything was set up before you started fixing it. A designer might not care about what marks distinguish capacitors from inductors, resistors, or diodes, but a troubleshooter certainly does, especially nowadays, when consumer electronics are no longer sold with schematics.
