    I was trying so hard to get rid of those nasty out of sync errors using different capacitators (47pf did the trick but after 1 min or so they came back) that i took the pad 4 off... so i traced to the panasonic chip and solded there...

    Aparently i got the wrong leg and when i tried to take the weld it bridged with the legs next to it... so i got 4 legs together...

    I tried using the sucker and the wicker and was unable to get it all.. its pretty micro between those legs...

    Whats the best way to proceed?

    Maybe a heat gun or something?

    Thanks in advanced

    heat the solder and try removing it with a thin knife or something very small

    Solder wick will work 99% of the time as long as your soldering iron is powerful enough to heat the large surface area of the wick.

    Generally 30W is fine!

    Sounds like you weren't using flux. The solder probably would have sucked right up inot the wick if you poured a shitload of flux on it.
