Can a soldering noob replace capacitor C9560?
Hi, my father's MBP mid 2010 have the classical GPU Kernel Panic, it frustrated me that the motherboard replacement was so expensive that now he's thinking about throwing out the machine, so I decide to learn how to microsolder and replace the C9560 capacitor (which is more likely to be the problem)
I have no experience soldering, but I feel confortable around motherboard and any hardware in general (I build PC's, dissasemble and clean lots of laptops and modded a Mac G5 case). I've watched hundreds of Louis Rossman's videos, so I really want to do this. I'll be buying the equipment for this, also because I love the idea of this ability of fixing motherboards and mainly because it looks like a fun new hobby.
¿Do I need months of practice to to the repair or if I use good equipment and carefully follow the videos I might get the job done?
Here's the list of the equipment I'll be buying, remember that for now it'll only be used for this repair, so it will be cheap:
Solder Wick remover ( not shure if I need this):
(I didn't wanted those heat gun + soldering iron combo stations, the idea of one box dissipating both tools heat doesn't sound very reliable)
Thanks for your time and sorry for my english!
Forgot to add, the motherboard is 820-2565-A, does anyone have the schematic?
Is this a good question?
