craigslist. google. you may have f'ed yourself right good though if it's as bad as you say with solder connecting various legs to each other.

Relevant desoldering equipment: soldering iron and a $3 chunk of desoldering braid (wick).

Wii chips are relatively simple to do, even the D2C wouldn't be all that tough after doing a bunch of PSP chips (those need pin point precision and magnification to do), though I haven't had to deal with a D2C myself as of yet I usually solder right to the legs of the main chip on the PS2's which is no bigger pitched than the drive chips.

I'm surprised it's not easier to find an in-state installer, though I guess with recent crack downs in the USA installers are disappearing (rightfully so, who really wants their homes raided to help a few non-solder capable people out), and I suspect come the new year some new laws will come to Canada as well. A right PITA sending stuff across the border to Canada, with customs on anything over $20 goods, customs holding packages for up to 2 weeks, and the lack of international insurance when using most reasonably priced and reliable shipping methods.

    generic soldering irons were never made to last

    @ZeroT21, Exactly. They're only good if you're willing to practice soldering, not for the long run.
  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    i only use 'em to fix my own home appliances or personal projects/mods

  • SylverReZ @ SylverReZ:
    Home appliances would be a soldering gun, including plumbing. Normal soldering irons are for hobbyist projects/modchip installs.

    though i've heard plenty of people getting wrecked trying to ''fix'' their microwave

    If brain small, does that mean bigger balls? :unsure:

    no ,they have bigger balls

  • ZeroT21 @ ZeroT21:
    we can't possibly insinuate they have small brains, be modest and just tell 'em they have big balls so they feel better bout 'emselfs
