    The copper is another conductor of heat that's pulling it away from the component. If there is solder in the bottom then it's going to be even harder.

    Try the method I mentioned in my original reply and see if you can get it to move. If the board is thin and you're struggling to get it to move then use caution not to leave heat on if for an extended period of time.

    And ya, pics of the other side will help.

    I did include a picture of both sides, in case you didn't see that.

    The board is as thick as any laptop board I've seen.

    Is your iron a set wattage? Looking at them images I don't see why with correct temperature and desoldering braid that power port shouldn't just fall out.

    If it's a lower temp iron it's maybe not getting hot enough to remove the solder

    You're better at de-soldering than I am if you're able to release something like this with braid. Is there a trick to getting to last bit of solder out of the vias? I've never had luck doing that.

    Justin: I must have missed the pick of the other side (like that surprises you lol). Me, I'd have a hard time removing it with your equipment. Components soldered on both sides can be a bitch without a de-soldering iron. The trick for me has always been getting it hot enough (the reason I suggested adding more solder) and wiggling it out.

    Tbh I normally use my wand on something like this. Set the temp on the wand and remove with tweezers once the solders melted.

    If I use desoldering braid I add more solder like you mentioned, I find it helps the old solder to melt into the braid more easily.

    It would be a lot easier to wiggle free if it wasn't soldered in 5 places, lol.

    PS: This is the soldering iron I bought http://www.amazon.com/Aoyue-Variable...=vglnkc5619-20

    If its misspelled, Tapatalk did it. Knot me.

    I know, I was just complaining. Btw, wasn't that your signature for awhile?

    Yes it was. I just now stopped using Tapatalk Pro and went with the new version again. They finally made it usable again.

    This is annoying the hell out of me. I don't understand why it's not budging. I put the solder on, and it's a liquidy as possible. No part of it will move a millimeter.

    Edit: Do you think it could be glued on?
