any way to remove a bridge on bios chip?
any way to remove a bridge on bios chip? –
please help! i created a bridge b/w on the bios chip. how can i get rid of it? the desolder wick is too large to use to remove it. please help!
spread the solder wick open a little so you get strand's instead of close knit braid
you could also try and remove it with a needle while heating with soldering iron but be very careful not to move the bios leg aswell or use to much heat tht can lso dmge the legs
I get this prob when i use low wattage iron cant get the wick hot enought to be effective, I have a bigger iron gets very hot but have to be carefull with it.
Desolder wick is the only easy method try what Predz said and dont let the area get too hot!!
What I usually do is place the iron tip right between the legs and slow push it upward as the solder melts onto the solder tip, then wipe the tip clean from solder and do it again until everything is clear. Remember, don't put too much pressure as you will bend the chip leg and create more damage.
I have a 15 watt iron and it works great with the desolder wick, do what Predz say, spread 'em and it should work.
on paper, it sounds pretty clever and easy. but when i tried it out, its tough. my hand keeps shaking as i was afraid of damaging the chip. i wish there was some sort of machine to suck out the freakin solder. this just comes to show how pathetic i am.

i normally add extra solder to the short - weird but the desolder wick works better with the fresh solder and it removes it with ease. Its very delicate work as you don't want to stuff it up further.
I did this to a chip once. I fixed it by finding out where the shorted leg went and got a needle and lifted it off the board this broke the short and resolded a link wire to the severed track connection. I did this because I could not see any short at all but my multieter was telling me short even after I had scraped it clean with a needle. LAST RESORT!!!!!!
