_____________________________________________________________Great thread, thanks for keeping it bumped.
I am in the process of replacing four caps, C401, C402, C601 and C701. Had a heck of a time getting some of the solder joints to melt, even at up to 780 Farenheit. In the end, I will have to drill out two of the more stubborn leads. I figure there must be some pretty effective heat sink attached to those leads.
Not that experienced with this, wish me luck...
First thing I would do is drop your heat. I use 300c are 570F heat up the old junk solder hit it with some good new solder it will come out will very little effort with a good solder sucker. It will not hurt to drill out if all else fells it's not a multi layer board. Hope you get it done soon.
