Yes we do. My dad made a living at one time as the owner of a TV repair-shop I grew up with a soldering iron in one hand and an oscilloscope probe in the other. Those businesses, along with their descendants, computer repair-shops, are almost gone. This is one of the big reasons why they disappeared and why it's such a pain to do it yourself. And, as this story points out, many repairs are easy to do, and some, replacing batteries in Apple devices, have deliberately been made almost impossible for users or ordinary shops to do.
