Microcomputer Troubleshooting Training.
Heiserman, Russell L.
The microcomputer troubleshooter is regarded as a technically knowledgeable member of the team and is more active in equipment selection, site preparation, site supervision and preventive maintenance, and on-site training of operators, maintenance people, and programmers. Microcomputer troubleshooting can be incorporated into an electronics program in two ways. Troubleshooting can be an area of study in a comprehensive electronics program or the goal of a specialized electronics program. The background study required for either path is the same, and coursework used to meet the first objective (a comprehensive electronics program) can also become part of the program with the second objective (specialized electronics program). A good foundation in basic electronics is essential. Troubleshooting microcomputer-based equipment may be broken into a basic and an advanced course. The basic course should use a single-board system, emphasize basic ideas, and introduce specialized instruments and techniques designed for computer troubleshooting. The advanced course should include a more complex system (multiboard system and disk drives), a more detailed study of the system, details of the system's operating system and common peripherals, and application of troubleshooting techniques and use of instruments covered in the basic course to troubleshoot the larger, more complex system.
