Randy Leonard: Thank you for the light bulb trick. I've been using it for a couple of years. I repair older audio amplifiers. In fact, if the bulb comes on full bright, the final power transistors are likely to be the only power components that can handle that kind of current. I use 125V 50W light bulbs with alligator clips across the fuse holder.
Toeknee Toe: Three good tips. 1. Always check source power and continuity. 2. Light bulb trick. 3. Sit on Left hand. Thanks.

Impedancenetwork: Wow. No crap. You bought a Chinese inverter and it failed soon after you bought it. Why do people keep doing this? Buy the expensive inverters. The Chinese do not dare go up to the $600-$1000 price range.
Another thing I find shocking, besides the fact you bought a freaking cheap-ass inverter, is that you have a Fluke meter. Why do you have a Fluke meter when you barely know how to check a resister? You were a TV repairman and you learned the "light bulb" trick. Oh lord. What to say, what to say. You need to get out of your mother's basement and go to college. And by college I don't mean one of those "for profit rip-off schools." Not Devry. Not ITT. I mean a real university where you have to take Calculus, Engineering Physics, Chemistry, Circuit Analysis, Electromagnetics, Optics, Power Distribution, Control Systems, State Space Variables, Complex Analysis, etc. Stop pretending you know something and just go to school. Four years later you will actually know something. And all this won't seem so mysterious.
Get a girlfriend. You can tell you're a broke-ass living in your mother's basement for too many years.
Jim Gill: Good diagnostics and video.
Kennynva T.: I use the circuit breaker in an old power strip...usually they are 15 amp..and reset-able...so no more fuse's..and put the right hand on the inverter..not the left..the right hand is further from your heart.....nice video..
hydrolisk1792: Harvey's TV repair to be exact?
hydrolisk1792: Let me guess, you worked at a TV repair shop in LA?
Tom Measor: We've all done it - well most of us lol.
RGTelesound: He could've made another vid but it was very cool of him to leave it the way it is to show his simple mistake.
Scott Banks: boring
jake ounce: Something to remember. Never would have thought!!
Cashpot: I am very glad he no longer repairs TVs.
Harry Haefner: Dr. Murphy strikes again!
Anthony W: Hi... can jerry or someone else post a diagram of how to correctly add in the light bulb? Much appreciated!
Saber Rockin': Oh, and don't forget the 7.5 fuze ha ha
CampKohler: Sometimes the grease in switch mechanisms, after a long, long time, will get hard and physically block the contacts from touching. You have to wash out the switch with solvent (or at least scrape it all out) and apply fresh lube.
You do know of course that we schmucks watching you won't find bad switches and misswires; we will all have bad semiconductors, shorted coils, and lots of black smudges across the boards. Just our luck.
