Help Removing Duox2 Pinheader
Posted 17 December 2005 - 12:44 AM
am am trying to remove my duox2 chip from my xbox. i used a solder iron and braid to remove all the solder from the pins at the back of the lpc, however the pinheader is still wedged in there pretty tight. has anyone any suggestions? would it be a bad idea to try any yank it out with pliars?
also i have noticed that there is a tiny resistor come loose close to the lpc port. i do not know if this happened previous to me trying to desolder the pinheader or during it. does that sound serious??

Realize, all pinheaders are the same. Except the ones that come with X3 chips (two extra pins). If you're taking out the DuoX to put in a new chip, keep the pinheader and just stick your new chip on it. Then solder any extra wires.

i dont have a digi-cam to take a pic of the resistor thats come loose, but it's the one next to the c7d2 point as you will see from this image i found on the web:)

i need to know 2 things....
1) How do i clean off any remains of the broken capacitor that may still be on the pads of the board?
2) is there some way of attaching a new capacitor to the board other than soldering it? (the capacitor is tiny and looks like a nightmare to solder)

If you try to pull out the pinheader with pliers you will have bigger problems than that

you will also need a 15-20 watt fine tip solder pencil and some .032 gauge flux core solder.
as for the header, grab one pin at a time with the pliers, and while heating up the other end of it, the one stuck in the board, GENTLY pull it out of the mobo and plastic frame.
