    In amibay, they say to desolder the C903 and C913 to get a better treatment on the leak, i thought i had a proper leak work, but looks like it is bellow the surface...
    how to desolder ? do i need a iron solder that do the opposite work?

    No, you just need to buy something called "Solder Wick".

    It comes on a roll similar to solder, and is a braided flat strip. You place the Solder Wick over the location you wish to desolder and place your soldering iron onto the Wick to add heat. At the solder and Wick both heat up the solder gets sucked onto the Wick. As soon as the liquid solder is sucked onto the Wick you then take the Wick away from the components and let it cool down, then throw the used part away. Fairly easy and cheap.

    If you haven't played a classic game in years, it's never too late to start!
