    Botched epoxy removal

    Hello Everyone,

    i have modded a few wii's now but i have just come accross a D2E with epoxy!!!

    I have tried removing it with a heat gun and a scalpal, in the process i have lifted 2 surface mount pads from around the D2E chip, so obviousley the legs are no longer connected to the board!!

    now the disk wont eject!!

    is it possible to fix this??

    Also is the paint stripper method safer for removing the black epoxy??

    Thanks Chris,

    I'd suggest you take this to a professional, By your suggestion to use paint stripper its easy to see your not gonna get that epoxy off without doing more damage, Are you located anywhere near the suppliers listed on the forum??
