Learning electronics without becoming an apprentice

I am interested in gaining a more fundamental understanding of AV electronics, things like TVs, cameras, microphones. I use a lot of this kind of stuff from the front end but would like a better understanding of how they operate from the inside. I want to know how to wire, maintain and repair them. But where to begin...

I have checked out some books on basic electronics, but welcome any suggestions. I've looked into technical training, but a lot of it seems to revolve around computers and networking these days. I am interested in learning simple things, like how to troubleshoot and eliminate audio and visual hum in the signals; to know the advantages and disadvantages of composite over S-video connections; and even seemingly simple stuff like how to solder wires properly. A lot of this will just require me to roll up my sleeves and play around to see how things work. But I would like to know why they work as well. Any thoughts on how to learn electronics without becoming an apprentice?
