MiniMaxx Diesel Tuner for pick up trucks HDMI Port repair
According to the customer the HDMI port has been broken, and he has tried to keep it on with crazy glue. Ofcourse that will not last long, as microsoldering is necessary for any kind of motherboard repair these days.
this is an aftermarket tuner made by the company mini maxx by h & s which is out of business. However it is the same thing as a Bully Dog brand tuner model 40420 or 40428
Current HDMI status as the board arrived
It was fully broken and 2 legs stuck in the throughholes with some damage to the pads.
The hdmi port was completely removed from the board,broken right off.
What makes this repair difficult is the fact that there is an LCD ont he other side that is not easily detachable, and is soldered on . The flex cable is sodlered tot he screen and attached to the motherboard in a way where it will be damaged if removed. So cleanup was a bit difficult.
So here is what we did. We used slight hot air on the board to heat it, making sure we do not damage the LCD. So therefore we can have more accuracy. without having a cool board. Cool boards always give you bad joints. We removed the broken legs by suctions, and we cleaned the pads, tinned and fluxed them.
Installation and Inspection
So we obtained a new port from our supplier and went ahead after the cleanup process to place the port and solder all the legs
