I tried with wick in the first one or two lcd repair, but switched to the solder pump. I had poor results with the wick. If you can get the joint to molten status, the pump works great.

I suspect my poor results with the wick is that it is really cheap wick.

My soldering irons are 30W and 40W sort by ebay lowest price. I paid maybe $4 USD for them and they work fine. A solder pump is also around $3 off ebay.

The local electronics store wants $30CDN for a solder pump.
