Was left a message that the Party Zone CPU board was in the back and that it should have U20 replaced and socketed and that the socket will be brought in on Thurs. WHo made the decision that U20 was causing some issue? There is a board in PZ now where did this board come from? OK I hate doing this type of work at Modern as they are not set up for it in the least. Its like trying to chop down the forrest with a Herring!
Anyway I decided to try to do the work there as I repaired all that was down in just 1 hr and had 3 1/2 hrs to go. I also changed out a poorly installed remote battery holder that someone had installed in the past.
All work was done under the light of a flashlight just too start.
Here the 2803 has been removed but there is nothing to clean off the flux or to really clean the holes better.
I cut the chips from the legs first then remove the legs however the XCellite cutters that are supposed to be used for this work were used to cut hanger wire from a clothes hanger to use for mounting a sign so they don't cut any more as the tips are broken off. This was the best I could do with the ruled down broken tip Xcellite
Here i am using the flashlight from behind the board to view the traces better to test continuity making sure that no trace or via has been compromised.
Reworked the Remote battery Holder.Too bad we don't have connectors as I would have used them in order to remove the board from the back box easier in the future. Green and Black wires were used as thats what we have on hand. Take note that the work room area is lit with a flashlight.
I always use the unused battery holder pads as strain relief for the battery holder wires.
