Desolder the wires as illustrated. This can be done by heating up the solder connecting the board and the wire. When the solder is liquified, pull the wire away from the board.

Buena guia, faltaria poder ver donde va soldado cada cable, he llevado mi cable a reparar y me lo han devuelto peor de lo que estaba, veo que han usado un cable de 4 hilos mas masa pero el original es de 5 hilos mas masa.

podria decirme donde van soldados los cables por la parte que va de la caja al usb ? ( el tramo corto )

Gracias

Hipolito, pudíste arreglar el problema?

Yo tengo un DK2 que compré usado y vino sin la caja conectora del sensor. Hay forma de fabricar alguna? Reemeplazarla por alguna otra cosa?

Desde ya gracias.

Puedes conectar directamente el cable del sensor a las gafas, levantas la Tapita de goma que tiene y ahí lo conectas, con un alargador funciona correctamente también
