    The ground wire goes to ground.

  2. McGuywer says:

    Dude, go get a thicker chisel tip. That one is for fine SMD work, not for cables.

  3. jrcboy says:

    You don’t have to start over with a cable that is now three foot shorter…….just to where the cable is good.

  4. andrewt248 says:

    The center conductor is soldered to the tip and the shield (ground) is soldered to the sleeve of a TS plug.

    rebel u cut the wire =0

  6. Mercury888 says:

    why did you need to TIN the ground wire and where does it go after its been tinned? Do you just put it to once side? or wrap electric tape around it?

  7. xaviermockingbird says:

    that helps a hell of a lot

  8. mbdil says:

    Perfect! That’s what I needed to know! Thanks!

    i have a question
    my laptop is broken and i think a smd is broken but there are like 100 of them
    how do i now wich one is broken???
    please respond

    Go to your address bar, after the word YOU and before the word TUBE, type in “win” then press enter

  12. dylanmaxwell says:

    flux capacitor?

  13. davidjereb says:

    I suggest using more flux. The one in the core of the solder just wont cut the mustard.

  14. tt2ent says:

    Funny how almost every video someone trys to correct someone but fails at it miserably,,,

  16. mast3rbug says:

    A week? No it take about 1 hour, maybe less.

  17. DIGIBORDO says:

    Use a “multicore”tm wire, 0.35mm. And you don’t need wash off the flux. Try this.

  18. thelastnameavailable says:

    flux is often added during smd soldering when solder is caried from the tip to the join. When doing smd soldering the flux in the cored solder is often burnt off before coming into contact with the joint. Flux is not needed if the solder is added directly to the joint such as in standard through hole soldering.

  19. DIGIBORDO says:

    For what? I think it’s multicore solder wire. Flux is a previous century…

  20. 30GB says:

    its in the solder wire dumb dumb

  21. sloka666 says:

    where is fucking flux?

  22. trhisdone says:

    Flux. This is a debated point. Some say flux the iron and flux the board. Others say just flux the iron. Others say just tin the iron with rosin core solder. If you re tin the iron and work fast you don’t need flux. I always tin the iron, flux the iron and flux the board. Just to be safe.This type of soldering is not for your first trys…


  23. thelastnameavailable says:

    1)I would guess, same as a normal capacitor, remove from PCb and measure capacitance.

    2) 0.3mm 60/40 #SE-06003-RMA from goot.

  24. CodigoCerrado says:


    I would like to ask you two questions:

    1.) How can i test SMD capacitor with a regular meter.
    2.) What kind of soldering iron are you using in here.


  25. 260830107 says:

    no flux needed? wow O.O

  26. killybay2 says:

    My boy got the hands of a surgeon. You need to stay off the Starbucks if you are going to be doing this kind of work…lol

  27. davidbball13 says:

    i dont like them too they are too small

  28. stupidfish100 says:

    i dont like smds

  29. eviltwinzzz says:

    Cant we all just solder stuff together peacefully, Like normal people?

  31. borzozoo says:

    Hi sir please could you tell me how to test SMD capacitor with a multimeter no capacitor tester just a basic one please help me

  32. slovakmath says:

    grymac: you conceded faggot. eat shit you loudmouth lying showoff. everyone knows you ly your ass off you lazy nonworking homo bum. you are too stupid to get math or physics degree you retd. you rode in small bus to school because that bus was for retards like you who were crosseyed and drooled on their chin and wiped boogers on shirt. they always say stuff like: my brother runs a space station, or fichard feynman was my uncle, or I set world record for fastest speed on rocket powered automobile

  33. ZombiedustXXX says:

    Grymac, this is not slowed down. Boards using these types of components are applied to pc boards by robots.

    However, there are times that failures and unforseen reliability/compatibility issues arise.

    Component upgrades are often used after a product is manufactured.

    This is where a skilled tech uses these methods.

  34. ZombiedustXXX says:

    +1 to the other posters on the addition of flux before the work is done. I helps the solder to flow, and results in a better overall product.
