I’m hoping someone can help here.
I’ve been repairing electronics for almost a year now, and it’s going quite well, but I’m still having problems with lifting/burning off pads when desoldering, especially when I’m replacing analogue sticks on controller boards.
I really don’t know what I’m doing wrong. I’ve turned my soldering iron way down but it still happens.
Could it be the flux that I am using? As the only flux I have is a huge tub of plumbers flux (tried to be economical when buying). Would the type of flux be causing the pads to burn/lift?
Any help or advice would be great guys
