This just makes my skin crawl.
From Llamma's hall of shame.I just felt that it needed to be posted.
I bet you this was originally posted because the guy was asking why this doesn't work or it didn't "fix" anything...
My concern is what did he use to do this soldering. Maybe one of those soldering guns used to fix CRT TV's?
i feel it must be a joke.....to do something like that is bad enough...to then decide to post it online.
Jeez. I'm bad but that's just awful.
The question I found on that picture : can you find anything right? xD
Check out this bad boy.
Unfortunately I don't have pictures, but someone who tried repair Debug Station before I bought it, used tin (!) in place of normal cables. He can't solder it, so used a insulating tape to glue it to PCB
Check this NAND on a 360:
That's no excuse. If I run into a situation where I can't handle a solder job, I have someone else do it.
That poor NAND . Ive been soldering for about 10yrs + and id say I was only starting to get confident now
By the looks of it,seems like it was some dual NAND mod ore something like that.
That place is such a major rip off. $90 for a fitted modchip?
how else can you convince people to pay rip off prices if not using scare tactics......."go to anyone else and THIS!!! will happen", its a very common way of people trying to justify steep prices
Yeah that's shameful haha $90 for a 20 min job using a $4 modchip haha
I don't have the cart anymore, and it's not exactly a mod, but I once had a copy of Pokemon Silver, that had a replaced battery (darn thing didn't work). I was going to replace the battery again, so I went to open it. There was a glob of solder so big that it was jamming the cart so it couldn't be opened. I could get the current owner to take a pic if people want to see that monstrosity.
I find it funny how people on those gaming seller groups on Facebook " fix" gameboy carts by using tape to hold down new batteries :/
Seriously! It takes less than 2 minutes to do this properly and a monkey could do the soldering.
I won't lie I did my first battery replacements few years ago using electrical tape. I think I broke 2 xacto blades trying to pry the old battery apart. Didn't have soldering iron back then..
I replaced battery on two carts this last weekend in half the time it took me to do 1 of those old ones.
Hmm... I still use electrical tape and small cable ties to fix lithium batteries in cartridges and other small cases when i don't have access to spot welding equipment. Those small button cells just love to make a stinky bang when soldered even with 10W soldering iron and it's almost always impossible to install a battery holder (if it's not a big cartridge like SNES etc.). Of course you can order a battery with contacts but you'll have to wait for delivery when you can buy ordinary 2016/2012/1016 pretty much everywhere.
