how can I find schematics for used microchips?
I've got a number of old TV's, printers, and computers etc. I've used the diodes, capacitors, transistors, and wires for my attempts to learn and experiment w/ electronics... now I have a good number of PCB boards with chips and timers, and a fair number of other things that I'd love to play around with; How can I learn the schematics for these chips n' things? ... and is there a place that shows me the "code" for reading the color stripes on the resisters?
I'd love any info that people can give me.
