PCM Soldering Skills Save Macbook From Broken Headphone Jack for my Mother-in-Law

Brian's mobile one I'm gonna teach you some cool tricks to be able to remove things that are broken off that are made out of copper is gonna be on the car laptop or whatever we're doing my sweet mother-in-law's laptop here so I've iced it and just held it gently

With a towel and the problem was the headphone jack tends to break off on these they try superglue that didn't work so I use a drill bit to get all the superglue off I was just gonna drill it out I was just gonna drill a hole in the

Middle I was gonna take a little T pin or something and hook it out may have seen these from biology class just gonna hook into it and then just pull it out but as I was drilling it I found was really hard to drill because there's so

Many layers of copper and plastic in between it's just a goof it cleaned everything really well I thought what if I could solder to all that copper that I'm looking at so that's what I did is I turned the

Soldering iron on I started to preheat it I have this and then I had some copper wire because I was running some power out to the out building and building and I dipped it on that and I think this is a great way to just pull

It out I'll just solder this to the headphone jack and you have to be really careful cuz there's a little copper tab that interfaces with the headphone jack now this really fine micro solder stuff from Kester it's really thin works great

So I've got that down in the hole I've got the soldering iron down in the hole I'm trying to get it to stick and it won't go it just keeps retaining the tip but as you can see I got a little blob to stick on there but it wouldn't let go

So I go to pull on it a little bit and it pulled out it and lift because that ground wire from the romex I just used the solder even how thin that is and I just pulled it right out you've got a busted off headphone jack

In there you don't want to take a whole computer apart might be a worth doing to just solder to it the thing is on there big-time I mean you can't pull that off I was gonna try to snap it off and show you what it looked like it's not coming

Off I guess that tells you how good that worked I just thought this would be a good little video to share with you if you liked it be sure to click thumbs up leave a comment how do you guys pull these out let me know in the comments
