Question about Sony KV-36FS17 36" TV
You need something called "solder wick." It's a braided copper strip that soaks up the solder as it melts. (You put the braid on the joint and then heat the braid and joint together.) I think Radio Shack sells it in small rolls. It's also available online from companies that sell electronic parts and service supplies.
You can also try using a vacuum solder ******. That has a plunger that pops out when you press the release button, and it pulls the molten solder away from the joint. I personally don't like those; I find the wick is much more effective, and it's possible to damage the board with the mechanical ******.
