Fixing a BROKEN pin. It's Phemon II X4 955

post #1 of 54
Thread Starter 

One is bent[blue], the other is broken off(orange-ish).
So, are any of these ground pins/ I don't know where to find like a diagram or something.

You could bend the blu one back, as for the orange one little jb weld and maybe try to put it back together?

I need something small enough to get to it. The bent pin.

A mechanical pencil with the lead retracted will grip a pin perfectly.

Bend the the bent pin back with a needle or your fingle nail.

And hope the other pin is just a ground, and so the cpu would be fine.

I watched a linus tech tip one this one. Try useing the CPU with out putting the pin on it. IF it does not work Try to find what hole the pin would go on the MB and drop the pin in that hole then it should work

I think you are missing the point of this being an electrical connection. Epoxy glue is not known as a good conductor, but solder is. This is why electronic components are soldered together and not glued. The pin was originally soldered, FYI....

@ the OP: Good luck with soldering that pin back on. I would try holding the CPU in a hobby vise. Hopefully you have one, and also a fixed magnifying glass so you can see what you are doing. You might also have to take the tip of your soldering iron and sharpen it up like a needle to get at that pin properly. The biggest problem might be that you are melting the solder on nearby pins while you try to solder the broken one. If you are able to pull this off, please post the results. I am sure everyone here will be impressed and chip in for a box of internet donuts for your acheivement!

This sounds like good advice. I would try this before you break out the soldering iron. My fear would be that the broken pin you drop into the socket hole would fall too far and then get lodged in there. If the pin has a solder shoulder on it, it should prevent this and keep it on top of the socket where it can make connection with the pin boss on the CPU.
