After literal weeks of watching repair videos i decided to give it a shot. Bought all the tools etc and a nintedo switch. Yes yes I know i shoulda started on something cheaper. Lesson learned.
Trying to replace the IC chip.
After it being EXTREMELY stubborn i cranked up the temp…
LESSON LEARNED - 3 blown capacitors later Im not going to bother trying to repair it and just use it as practice.
I have a LED magnifying helping hand. In all the videos i see they center the damn chip perfectly.
Aside from the fact that its hard to fit the hot sir straight down under a magnifying glass and going side ways burns my hands…
HOW THE HECK DO YOU KNOW WHEN THE CHIP IS PERFECTLY CENTERED?? Does it need to be 100% centered? In all the videos they even adjust the chip slightly…AM i supposed to feel when the pins are aligned etc?? Any help is greatly appreciated
