i got a vacuum desolder the problem is the solder wont melt again so i can desolder it


#4

The part where you soldered on the soldering iron apply that area to the same spot. Check the iron and see where the most solder is located.


#5

i did all that it like it wont heat up all the way


#6

Can you add solder to the iron? And does the solder melt?
Is it plugged in?
It should have enough heat.


#7

i think i got water on it i think that it


#8

Clean the tip of the iron with a file. Make sure it’s screwed in fully.

Moving to tech talk.
