Bear with me, I'm an artist.
So, I feel a little weird saying this, but I don't really know how to read a schematic, nor do I know my way around a digital multi-meter. Are there any good tutorials out there to help out a hopeless (but INTERESTED) ludite like myself? I'd like to better understand how they'll help me fix my pins.
Also, a couple of addendum questions: Are EM and Modern/Solid State schematics read the same way, or are they wildily different from one another? What is a reliable and inexpensive multimeter? I've been told mine is so unreliable that it's not worth using.
Thanks for your time and understanding,
