I'm trying to get balls deep into computer repair, and have acquired an interest in learning how to do board level repair jobs.
As a starting point is anyone able to recommend a good site for saaaaaay parts, and schematics/data sheets?
a bit of googling have left me nothing, so I'm probably doing it wrong.
Schematics are a great boon to help you repair boards, but you should get practiced with solder rework, reflow, and transfers either by hand or with something like a UV rework machine.
Learning to handle SMD componants and even going as far as performing successful BGA reball/replacements will give you a better experience platform than just reading some schematics, then taking a soldering iron to a dead board.
A multi-meter, a magnifying glass, and an SMD code book could teach you a lot too if you aren't especially equipped for the hands-on approach just yet.
