Quote from: ||C|-|E|| on 12:24, 02 May 16The other day, when I added the little caps to the RGB output in my Plus some of you guys noticed that some soldering points in the board looked actually dry and it would be nice to reflow them. So, yesterday I decided to carefully go through the whole board. This is what I found.As you can see, many of the soldering points actually looked dreadful. I do not know if this happened during the wave soldering process or later, but the whole board looked far from nice (imho). It is very different from the conventional 6128 I have in Spain or the board from the CM-14, that was actually very nice. So, I proceeded to reflow most of the soldering points and the look properly wet now.[attachimg=1][attachimg=2]Since I had the board in the hand, I thought that I would change the caps that had the leads obviously bent, just because I did not really like them the way they were. [attachimg=3]And I did it. I actually changed the two big guys (470 pf) but the process, that is usually deadly simple, probed very difficult in this case. It seems that they were put in place before the wave soldering by pressing the leads to make them wider and them hard pressing them through the holes. Then, the leads were bent further to prevent any movement. Summary is that removing the caps from the board was a bloody nightmare and I only changed those two . The rest of the components seem to be placed in the board using the same method, by the way.And that was it!
