Wilgo, your last post was about your crappy IR machine. Are you still using that machine?
I didn't use that machine for the E76 repair. Used other soldering tools for that. The ICS chip is not a bga style
I re-used my ACHI IR for another repair just recently and it turned out fine. But the main problem is the inconsistency of the machine.
I'm going to operate on my upper heater arm tonight. Poke around in there... see if I can make some improvements.
I might have to switch out the IR ceramic for another built by the Germans. The Chinese are known for making poor quality IR plates.
If I had to do it all over again, I would buy another, better machine. There's still a chance I may send this thing back to the supplier.
