    Hi guys, I recently started my first Nintendo Switch repair.

    I identified I had a faulty video chip (from the usual two capacitors shorting out) and went to replace it. However, when replacing the chip I knocked two resistors out of place (the top two circled in the image ). I tried getting them in place and heating the board back up to temperature but they don’t seem to stick! I haven’t been using any new solder, just solely been using the hot air gun on my rework station, do you think I should clear the tiny pads and try and get some solder on them, any recommendations on how to get them on the board??

    I hoped they were just current smoother and the switch would work without them but it seems it doesn’t, however, I’m pretty sure the video chip is correctly replaced as the are currently no shorts on the board.

    Any help/tips would be greatly appreciated :)

    They are inplace, but seems moved a bit and probably don't contact with the board, just try to sit their better.

    If you burn the track, you can easy hook their to pins seems on image, only one it's soldered to another layer.

    Use flux and a low temperature solder to this things, melt with air gun this chipsets not are recomended, just for flipchips, and I didn't recommend too, these things need a profesional rework station and specific temperature params.
