Those types of caps are super fragile and fall of easily when bumped, even without heat.

I usually just use a hairdryer and heat the board up to a too-hot-to-touch temp and then get on them with a soldering iron.

They aren't too hard to put back on if you have a sharp tip iron.

If you don't pre-heat the board, you won't have any luck putting them back on.

I'd re-tin the pads with clean solder and flux, then have at it.

HOW-TO:

Modern Lead-free solder gets brittle over time. It also needs a lot more heat to melt than Leaded solder. She would have burned herself on the card if the lamp was hot enough to melt the solder. I'd say it was just brittle and broke, (IDK why...I'm not going to blame anyone)

Glad you got it fixed. No telling if it would have worked without it or not. Better to have it and not need it etc

I take it you won't be posting pix of the job? =(
