It's a great video and thank you!! On my Chuwi Hi9Air tablet, I want to disconnect battery. Manufacturer has two battery poles ending not on a pin connector, so, pole cables are connected on the motherboard soldered. Two pole cables are extremely thin, and also, soldered cables ending are extremely small. I have never seen such a tiny solder. I find it too difficult to unsolder. And if we suppose I unsolder correctly, without any damage, soldering back, e.g. battery replacement, the new battery, I mean the pole cables, is extremely difficult and risky to solder without doing any e.g. bridging damage, and finally damaging completely the motherboard. Would you have something to suggest me in all that? Thank you for your time!

Soldering components is so much harder than I expected it to be. I grew up using a soldering iron to make stain glass projects, but I’m finding now that I’m trying to solder electronic components it’s much more difficult.

This video have good explanation with it. The problem is the quality of soldering. Technically, idea and theoretical explanation is very good but the actual soldering is the problem. Try to improve soldering, the way you teach it verbally.

with your final example no exposed pins i have found tinning everything seperatly and then setting the chip down to solder with a hot air station makes for an easier and cleaner looking install

I’m very noob about soldering, just two questions. 1) what solder do you use? (If you could link one) 2) what temperature do you use for solder wires! Chips, desoldering?

How much can direct contact with the soldering iron these parts take?
IanMorpeth 3 роки тому
Instead of tweezers, I like to use my thumbnail. I get too shaky with tweezers. There is also the added fun of accidentally starting a game of tiddly winks as the occasional resistor flicks off the board, never to be seen again.

Matthew19002 4 роки тому
I had to reheat the soldering to a motherboard on a laptop that had taken about a year of an abusive environment, got the laptop running solid, the SSD was another story, and while giving it the same treatment one of the caps just fell off so it got stuck to the iron and I placed it back on, it did work, ran super fast as normal.. 3 minutes in it screwed up again.. I was getting a headache with this stuff so I looked up this video to see how it's properly done, my lighting sucked so I was using one hand to solder and the other to hold a LED light XD x.X as for the SSD it might have deeper issues, I've been experiencing surges and EMP waves at this place.. at least I believe.. "one light started messing around being a flourecent with a ballast and it interfered with the security camera's ontop of one time this place surged and killed 2 cameras specifically that were pointing inward while the outward pointing cameras with metal casings did not die.. and it also killed the computer power supply and those 2 channels off the reciever... got my work cut out for me o.o being broke and all" could an EMP leave something functioning but unstable?

Horrible soldering!!! The solder doesn't look shiny. It looks thick and lumpy. It doesn't look like he's using flux. What I usually do is add flux to the pads before soldering. Flux help the solder flow better, and it makes the solder look more liquidy, which is what you are really shooting for when working with SMDs.

For those saying use flux, do you put the flux on the pads before you begin to solder? How precise do you have to be with the flux? When I'm soldering my solder gets really sticky and sticks to my tip.
feasibletrash0 4 роки тому
you can actually remove the excess solder with just the iron tip, if you have flux, you don't need the braid or solder extractor
feasibletrash0 4 роки тому
seems like you don't have enough flux :)

Hi Collin! Love your tutorials! One question, I noticed that you used the Hakko soldering station for this (SMS) project. What temperature did you set your Hakko to? What soldering tip did you use? Thanks much!!

Is there a direct contact with the solder tip and the surface? Or are you letting the metal drip to the surface?

Ron Thompson On most, the dot or notch indicates the cathode (negative). The board silkscreen should show the dot as well. But if in doubt, test it with a multimeter on diode check mode.

On EEVBLOG Dave would say your soldering looks a bit how ya doin'. Why wouldn't you use flux and a hot air gun? Faster, easier, and better results.

Uh, I guess the buried thermal pad on the QFN device doesn't need to be connected... for this circuit. For some devices, you need to connect it for both thermal reasons and electrically.

at 3:37s. the three ic's looks like the solder is exess. how do we correctly deal with excess solder on small areas like those. ITS LIKE THE SOLDER JOINED TWI ICs of the three aligned on the right handside. (pause video at 3:37)
