    Pins qestions

    If I replace something with pins (the brown ribbon connecter right next to the modchip) do I have to desolder the pins also and the solder all the pins from the new replacement?

    Alright, so do I just have to desolder/ solder the points? Or do I have to also desolder/ solder the pins? Soldering the pins would be soooooo hard if I did have to , but if it's possible, I'll do it hoping not to mess up my wii.

    Multi-pin soldering

    Alright, so do I just have to desolder/ solder the points? Or do I have to also desolder/ solder the pins? Soldering the pins would be soooooo hard if I did have to , but if it's possible, I'll do it hoping not to mess up my wii.


    soldering those are way easier think you think....

    Multi-pin soldering technique (mormally used for solder on IC's with lotsa. lotsa legs

    1, flux the 2 end contacts on the board and on the connector

    2. line them up perfectly

    3 apply solder and solder the end on..... easy right?

    4. for those really tiny legs and pads...apply flux on the legs and pads (all of
    them at once)

    5. using a wider tip apply lots of solder on the connections ..starting from 1 end to the other end ....Now all the legs and pads are all covered and all shorted together...

    6 NOW use a solder wick WITH FLUX (horizintally ...lay it down along the row of legs)and remove off all the excess solder and to should have a completed connector install....(DONOT PULL ON THE SOLDER WICK WHEN IT GETS STUCK ON THE LEGS...JUST HEAT UP THE POINTS

    . Now that's the technique...us may end up with a few stubborn bridging between some legs.... relax..that's normal. with tiny bridges..using a wick too long or too hot will damage it.

    the way to do it is ti apply some more flux on the 2 legs and bridge... the apply your iron with a fine tip onto the bridge and draw it down the legs...you will notice the the solder is spred out onto the legs and you will have no more bridge......

    Good Luck

    OMG THANKS SO MUCH!!!!!!! Your are so helpful with so much description. I want to ask how to take out the old one, can I use soldering braid? Or do I heat the legs up and then use a braid?

    there are a few ways to do it im scared to tell you how i do it as I dont want you ruining it and yelling at me

    Make sure you take care of the two ends first, lift them up and get the solder off it. You need a hot iron, add lots more solder and run along the end of it horizontally, and quickly, then move it with tweezers before it sets again. Then use some braid to clean up the leads, pcb cleaner and install the new one.

    Maybe wait for someone to shine in on a different method I am assuming you dont have a hot air station otherwise itd be pretty easy to blast it with some hot air then move it.

    For the pins, you say add lots more solder. Why is adding solder necessary? If so, do I add it by putting it on the tip of the iron or by aligning the solder horizontally and then run the iron across?

    Thanks for your responses
