and how do i fix it?
it's where the solder hasn't joined the component to the board properly and it's all a bit loose. Probably need to re-solder it, but don't trust my half-arsed judgement.
On a similar theme, does anyone know anything about the technicalities of electro-harmonix pedals? My deluxe memory man doesn't seem to work anymore.
and expensive to replace.
re:dry conenction i remember similar adice so it must be right..but if i resolder do i need to clean it?
(not a sarcastic reply by the way)
If it all looks a state and covered in crap, then that could cause another bad connection/dry solder. However, if it looks clean and shiny, then it might just be a case of re-melting the solder but making sure that it all attaches properly?
I don't know what you're soldering, so don't know how tricky or risky/expensive it might end up...
(p.s. my knowledge on all of this is largely based on studying gcse electronics years and years ago, which is perhaps not the strongest recommendation of expertise)
