I am debating whether I want to attempt this job for a friend. The target is a BoP WPC89 MPU with battery damage. The damage appears to be limited to the 2 chips and some resistors below the batteries.
I have the Hakko FR300 and I have done work on Sys11, Bally-18 and Williams system 6 boards without lifting traces. All that aside I am concerned about the tiny traces on this board.
Here's some pics of the damage:
The board is having switch problems as expected.
If I do attempt this any advice from you guys? Lower/higher heat. Cut components off first? Add solder?
