Excuse my horrendous soddering job. I was wondering if there was anything I can do, or If my N64 was salvageable. Maybe I have to send it in to get it fixed and have them redo the soldering? It’s still unassembled. I’m live in Canada.
EDIT: BTW the Metal Piece (I think its a heatsink) near the Expansion Slot came off. I put it back in but it’s not as sticky as it used to be.
If you don’t already have them, get the flux pen as described in the installation doc and a desoldering gun. Apply flux, and suck all that old solder out. Once you’ve gotten pretty much all of the globbiness off, follow the instructions again, from the beginning.
And yeah, sending it to an installer to fix the soldering is a valid approach.
