Tip & How-To about Music
A common electronics problem is a Blown or Burnt up component
a lot of times you don't need to know about electronics to diagnose this as a problem
it will be a visual thing that you can see, like a burn mark on the circuit board
anyways if you can solder you should know or learn how to de solder
its much better than trying to clip leads and solder to them when replacing parts
I always de solder a part that need to be replaced
for some reason I cant upload photos to fixya ?
im one of those tech geeks that doesn't own a computer...
just an android phone and an iPod
so BELOW is a Link... for a video GIF of the process I explain
First Make sure the amplifier or equipment you are working on is Unplugged !!
and capacitors are discharged !!!
then I remove the circuit board after careful inspection
pre heat de soldering iron
carefully heat the area of the component to be removed
i wiggle it back and forth a little and from side to side
pre press in the solder extractor before heating the area
once the area becomes non solid let go of the extractor and the solder will
be sucked up into the iorn
then i use a tin foil pan to press it out repeat untell the part is loose and removable
sometimes you have to wiggle the part a little while heating to help it out
then i clean up the pad area where the New component is to be reinstalled
do this Carefully you do Not want to damage the pad
now ready for the New part
I really hope this Helps someone out, as for there was Not much help for me in the beginning 40 years ago...
as always thanks for your time, and check back for more tios to follow....
