Once again, mahalo nui loa for the input!! The 40XBR700 D board must be a little different layout than yours, I bought those very same cutters at RS, (they know me on a first name basis now, kind of scary), and there is no way on earth that those cutters can get at the IC pins, the IC's are buried to begin with, heat sinks and FBT in the way, so it's down to the desoldering braid, and, as has been mentioned, lots of ho'omanawanui, patience. Any idea as to how long it should take to desolder a pin using the wick?? As I mentioned, the RS solder sucker really did suck, think it's intended for the "big" connections.
Aloha and GO WARRIORS, and, of course, Haouli makahiki hou!!!
