Re: is this hot air rework station suiteable for recapping?

Tru-Hole TL494 can be unsoldered easily with a vacuum pump and you need to clean the holes anyway.

Re: Laptop upgrade advice

Use XP

Laptop was 'designed' around it and it will work.

I have a couple of machines similar to that one. Ubuntu is just bloated and runs Gbit nic at 14M/s top. With crashing desktop manager,...

Re: What causes voltage regulators to fail?

Hmm. This circuit might be very noise sensitive. Also 8V is a bit of a strange voltage.

Re: MS-7548 Failed TK Caps

One is for Vcore, the other one for Vtt (termination voltage) (I think)

A single cap would I think work, but there isn't any objection as to fill other places as well.

Re: Suspect Bad PS Apple AcBel API 1PC36

Uff. This is pain then. I've repaired many that way, by squeezing the pins, it however works only once or twice and afterwards it is the same or not worse than before. Problem is that many cheaper...

Re: Suspect Bad PS Apple AcBel API 1PC36

Use a needle and 'crimp' those ends.

Or rotate the connector for a whole circle and plug it in, this will provide some torque on the pins, making them connect well

Re: HV wire

No idea then.

Ground wire can possibly return all the fault current from other lamps as well or could be made to sustain more mechanical damage than the hot wire.
