changing v12 laser where to remove solder bridge? VIDEO INSIDE! –
I cant find this bridge, and ive tried 2 lasers now.
I bought 10
Here is video what happend, is this suppose to be like this when
the solder bridge is on the edge of the head left of the ribbon cable and looks like a 2mm ball of solder
I would like to say that is what exactly happens with the solder bridge still intact. Both coils move up and down, the disc motor never spins. I can't remember but I think the laser diode doesn't light up either.
Thanks guy.. I found the solder bridge after summ0ne explained it.
I dont understand why they do that in the first place, add that blob.
its electrostatic protection so the lenses dont get burnt during transport and handling by electrostatic discharge - easier then to wrap them in baggies.
Can i be sure ive removed the bridge properly as long the laser works?
Just use some desoldering braid on the solder bead. Well you could use a desoldering pump, but I think the laser is a little fragile for it.
Solder pumps are crap, avoid - braid is much easier and safer to use.
since there a re no components around you can slide the solder off with the hot iron
