I like creating electronics related YouTube videos. I mostly buy faulty gear from Ebay and make a repair video of it, but it's expensive and so with your help maybe I can continue to do so. Your support would be greatly appreciated.

In this short video I make a much needed modification to my 861D Hot Air Station in order to keep the LCD backlighting on at all times.

UPDATE: Small mistake on the schematic......the series backlighting resistor is 330ohm, not 4K7.

Note: This station is basically a 'copy' of the original QUICK 861DW unit. There are simply loads of copies going around and with different versions/revs of Pcbs inside.
