    The screw is a small flat head screw and difficult to get a grip of, however, I will try that. ]

A bit late for this iron, but next time you buy one, unscrew it straight away and apply a little engine grease before re-screwing it. It helps when you need to get it out again! You might try WD40 or other penetrating oil now though.

How do I take my soldering iron apart?


don't waste you time trying to fix it as the coil windings are shot
they are an induced heat system where an immovable object ( soldering tip ) is held in the magnetic field created by the coils which because it cannot move heats up

How do you use an weller wsb25hk change tips?


Hello, just loosen the set screws on the end of the soldering gun barrels. Install new tips and tighten the set screw--sung! If your soldering iron requires that the tips have a 90 degree angle on their ends. You can bend them but be very careful because you can break them end off. The tipes are made of copper with some other alloys and the are kinda brittle. You can do. GB...stewbison

I need a replacement screw that holds the soldering tip in place,I removed the screw,to take out the solder tip which I cleaned and on replacing screw and tightening it as tight as I can get it the tip is...


Chances are that the screw and maybe the hole in the iron barrel have been 'cross threaded'. Remove the screw and the tip, then examine the screw and hole threads for thread damage. If they are, the screw should be replaced, but the hole in the barrel will need to be cleaned with the proper size tap. You can find the tap and the screw at a home center, or hardware store , plus get some suggestions on how to fix your problem. Hope this helps!

How to remove a weller sp 80 tip


Just loosen the screw in the barrel near the tip, then rotate while pulling the tip out. It shouldn't be necessary to remove the tip unless it requires replacement. Hope this helps!

Power jack unattached and fell into case so can't plug in,. How do I open the case to reattach? Took out screws I could see but couldn't open case. If I can't recharge it I can't use it. Help.


Normal 0
this should help you....let me know if you need more help or info


Ill assume you have either a 31XX, 4XXX model since those are the ones that are alittle harder to get apart then any other Magellan. Read below what I have replied to others with this question.


You have to be careful taking them apart or youll Break the power port and the head phone port right of the board And it will probably screw the board up. had a few were ppl tried to Take them apart the wrong way and broke the tracers right off the board (now there junk)

Note: always start on the side opposite the power port

Anyway, after the screws are out, use your finger nail if you can,(that's what I use) if not get yourself a very small flat screw Driver (jeweler type) and starting from the side opposite the power port (pictures below) and Head phone port (start on the side the power BUTTON is on, starting at the bottom, Slip it along the seam where the front and back of the case Meet, but don't force it down inside the 2 halfs, you want to just put the blade In far enough so it slides along the seem and that its is separating the 2 just enough to unlock the tabs from Each other see the pics There are 6 taps to break free..2 on the top, 2 on the bottom and 1 on each side....don't worry about the on on the port side. Just tip the back of the case upward and that side will come free on its own. When you put it back together, the port side goes in 1st. Tip the rear of the case up and slide it in under the ports and then lay the back down on to the front half and it will snap together.

Tips to remove and replace the port

Magellan power port replacement for the following models
Magellan 800, 860, 2000, 2200t, 3000, 3050, 3100, 3140, 4000, 4010, 4040,
4050, 6000t and the 5310

On some models, you may find it easier to replace the port by totally removing the
Board and always disconnect the battery

Assuming that the power port is still intact and the tracers on the board are Good.

If you don’t have a rework station at your convenience, you can use a good Solder iron with a small tip.


DISCONNECT THE BATTERY AS SOON AS THE REAR
COVER IS OFF!


1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you
Can remove one side at a time. Break it at the top at the little tab!
Apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to tranfer the heat
Quicker to melt the old solder, because you don’t wont to apply more heat then
Is needed)
Remove one side of the front strap by applying a small amount of solder
Then do the same to the other side.
Apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear
Terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that’s connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.

The trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,

To install, make sure the centering pin is not broke off and still in the centering hole..if it is, use a paper clip or something to push it thru

Put a small amount of solder on each contact on the board then place
The new port on the board and apply heat it the tabs on the battery side while applying pressure so its flat against the board, then do the same with the other Contacts. If its not flush with the board apply pressure and reheat solder if your sure its in the centering hole

  1. 1st carefully break the strap in half that goes over the front of the port, so you
    can remove one side at a time.
  2. apply a small amount of solder to the tip of the iron (this is to transfer the heat
    quicker to melt the old solder, because you don’t wont to apply more heat then
    is needed)
  3. remove one side of the front strap by applying a small amount of solder
    then do the same to the other side.
  4. apply another small amount of solder to the iron and apply to one of the rear
    terminals/contacts and once solder is molten, tip the power port toward the tab that’s connected yet then do the other side and remove the old port.



    the trick is to remove the old port without damaging the tracers on the board,
    because once they’re damaged its junk. (especially the rear contacts,) one is + the
    other is - the front contacts are also grounds.

Tv has trouble turning on, clicks for about 10-20 minutes before it turns on. What do you think is the matter with it?


Your TV has some bad capacitors on the power supply. You can fix it yourself if you can use a soldering iron and a screw driver. Please see my Tips & Tricks, you will find a tutorial to fix this TV yourself and save $170. I hope this was helpful and best wishes on your repair.
