HDMI Port Repair Service - TDR - National Repair Center
Most rework on motherboards today is on the micro scale. HDMI ports are no different. Most pins of HDMI port are about .2 mm apart and require careful precision to rework. Some HDMI ports are harder than others to install. That is due to many factors. Some of th econtribution is caused by the physical attributes of the design of the PCB board to the HDMI port placed.
The bigger the size of the pads the easier it is to reflow, and the harder it is to not make bridged when reworking manually.
We have found it easier to use copper pins to HDMI ports. Other HDMI port materials tend to have a higher temperature of melting nad therefore causing more thernal stress to the reworked board. Some of which do not allow for reflowing as they are too brittle and must be installed manually.
Some HDMI ports are designed Pick-n-Place Friendly, Some are not!. Some can be easily worked on manually some are not. Just due to different design factors, and special etching some ports become pros, and cons, for either manual or remanufactured methods.
We repair most of today's HDMI ports in most electronics.
