    it's finding the problem.

    sometimes you are capable of discerning what the problem is but you need a specialist to fix it.

    Well it is a arbitrary distinction. Troubleshooting does not involve repairing it at all. As soon as you move to rectify a problem, you are not longer troubleshooting. You are repairing. Actually, repairing includes troubleshooting.

    I.ve been an electronics tech since I was 18 and now I'm 82. I never repaired anything while I was troubleshooting unless it just magically started to work again and that does sometimes happen. Troubleshooting is what you do to find the problem. Repair is what you do to correct the problem(s) you found while you were troubleshooting.

    Troubleshooting finds the problem, hopefully. Then once found, one can repair.

    The whole point in troubleshooting is locating faults and correcting them.

    Trouble shoot is find and identifying a problem. Repairing is a separate function that can only be done after you have finished troubleshooting.

    You can't fix it until you know what's wrong. The troubleshooting stage is mostly for finding the problem.

    Troubleshooting = Find the Problem.

    Repair = Fix the Problem
