    Does it help during the de-solder (removing) process to add some extra flux to the braided wick and/or to the solder points?🤔 Thanks & great tutorial. Is it a good idea to lightly wipe the contacts with the flux cleaner or IPA before mounting? Have a Lenovo laptop with the power plug broken off in the DC jack. I also subbed. Also want to put some kapton tape around the sensitive areas close to the port. Thanks 🤓

    Thanks! I'll be trying it myself soon. Lenovo doesn't want to cover my warranty for their crappy DC jack they put in their legion y540 laptop and when they sent me over to geek squad of course they say its physical damage but they want to replace the whole motherboard. I confirmed it was just the DC jack that is broken too. Try quoting me $440! I might be contacting you instead cause i'll prolly F this shit up

    What type of soldering tool are you using? It looks like it has a flat circular tip, as if it's specially made for this. Got a link?

    I'm using an Aoyue 469, RadioShack 60/40 solder, and RadioShack desoldering braid, and I can't get the DC jack solder on my Gateway M-6750 to come completely out. What could I be doing wrong? I'm thinking of just upgrading to a Hakko FX-888D.

    I'm just starting out soldering and I was trying to solder an old laptop and once I soldered on the new port it started to spark when I plugged it in any ideas to what I have done wrong?

    Could the desoldering be done with a 25w iron? or needs to be higher tempreture to desolder the factory solder?

    Very nice video. I wish I would have seen it years ago having tossed various electronics away with similar problems. Do you remember what tip you used to replace the original?

    I performed this repair successfully, but now my screen flickers. In your opinion, is this a result of a poor soldering job (not all pins being conducted properly) or could this be a result of soldering points touching each other?

    A couple questions: First, is the iso wipe fully necessary? I've read good and bad things with using iso alc on pc parts. Second, did you use any of the flux pen at all? You mention it as a tool at the beginning, but I never saw it in use.
