I/O board USB 2 mini socket replacement procedure.
Note this board is in a FT but the same cheap-arse crap sockets are used on all the HP I/O's.
Obtain quality replacements.
Mask surrounding areas with kapton tape. I used 2 layers where smd's were close.
Remove crap original sockets with a good quality hot air re-work station. I profiled the area to 160, 240 then 320 deg C at 120L air p/m at which point they floated off.
Clean up pads & land with 2mm pre-fluxed braid then isopropyl and isopropyl also on new socket.
Apply paste using pre-cut screen - I couldn't find mine so a needle was used.
Press new socket into alignment holes, ensure no excess paste has drifted, apply air at 320 deg C at 80 L/pm.
I applied an iron and a tiny amount of 63/37 on the tabs/land for strength.
Remove kapton, clean with isopropyl, buzz out pins, inspect area under scope, re-install & crank out a high score.
