I was given a pioneer receiver, that was giving weird errors. I fixed it for now by heating the offending DSP chip with a blowtorch, but I read this is not a permanent fix and the error WILL come back. So I found a replacement chip (the one TI makes that replaces the old defective chip).
However like most electronic stuff it is SMD. I know there has to be people in Taiwan who can solder SMD stuff or have the equipment. Does anyone know of a place I can take this receiver to and have them replace it for me?
I found internet articles that tells of how to replace it, something about pre heating the board until it’s warm and using a heat gun to melt the solder off and then using a suction device to remove the old part, then coat the pins with soldering paste and then heat the part to solder it (meaning you don’t use soldering irons). I believe this is how all computer boards are made today, basically a machine places the components in the right place and then it is put in an oven to solder it.
