    Hi guys and girls,
    Just some advice really, I purchased a blue screened switch today.

    Upon boot the switch booted to a blue screen,
    I applied pressure to the tegra and it came back to life,
    I decided to go one further and clamp the tegra down, now the switch works 100% (downloads plays games etc) been turned for 12 hours now with no faults. clamp still in place

    I have a hot air station and I'm wondering if it's worth a reflow, but I have no idea what temperature the chip can withstand/ if it will work

    does anyone know a good way of reflowing without damage to the tegra?

    thanks in advance

    Cover the surrounding board with Kapton Tape and reflow it ~250° C.
