    Wrong. I have yet to see a technical video on YouTube that was of any help. Most are total crap.

    True. Not only that, but it's much better to follow a regimented course or you'll be all over the place on YouTube. There is some good stuff on YouTube but I think it should be used to supplement a regimented study course. JMHO.

    Mister YouTube engineer, believe or not some of us actually can fix something without watching videos.
    But for that some people need gift from the great Wizard of Oz... "The sum of the square roots of any two sides of an isosceles triangle is equal to the square root of the remaining side."
    A tree is known by its fruit, a man by his deeds. A good deed is never lost, he who sows courtesy, reaps friendship, and he who plants kindness gathers love.

    Blessed are they who can laugh at themselves, for they shall never cease to be amused.

    I use Youtube all the time. I'd rather see someone else take it apart before I do it, and get tips and tricks on how to do it, vs me going in cold and trying to figure it out myself.

    If you cannot reed and understand a service manual, you shouldn't be working on equipment.

    Anyone who limits himself to one source of information is doing a disservice to his journey of learning. You should seek knowledge everywhere - Manuals, Youtube, CT.net, smoke signals, Morse Code. Hell, I've learned things from green techs.

    The problem with a site like YouTube is there's no curation so good information is right next to bad. I've seen plenty of videos on Windows issues that will certainly fix a specific problem, but send up breaking low-level processes.

    True. It's even worse for copiers because there's a lot less copier techs out there than computer or IT professionals. Good luck trying to find a copier solution on YouTube.
