This is a great tutorial thank you for uploading. My iphone SE has the issue’s mentioned above and a new charging port didn’t fix the problem so now I am going to attempt micro soldering.

I wanted to ask what is the bare minimum equipment I need for this specific project if on a budget? I’m not looking to make a business fixing phones so the stuff I buy will likely be just for this project..I’m okay spending more man hours dude to an inconvenience of using cheap less deficient tools.

Just wanted to know what the bare minimum of tools are I would need and if you have any recommendations on cost saving ? :)

I appreciate your time.

What exactly would you like to fix?

I’d look at iPad Rehab’s excellent YouTube video called “iPhone SE not charging…..” Jessa’s approach is strongly toward first figuring out what’s wrong. Ruling out a parts problem, is a very smart first step. But just because it isn’t the lightning port doesn’t mean it’s the TriStar chip (the IC that’s changed in this video). For example, sometimes the problem lies with a missing TINY component near the battery, causing the phone to report that it isn’t charging when it is fact IS. (i.e. not reporting charging)

Equip: microscope (you may be able to rent a work station at a local repair shop), good flux and solder, soldering iron, hot air gun, decent tweezers, Q-tips, 99% isoprop, and experience. Watch lots of YouTube (Louis Rossmann as well as iPad R), buy some dead boards from eBay and some TriStar chips (a few), and practice removing and replacing chips, then eventually putting a new one on, then going for it. You need to determine what temperatures (iron and gun) air flow, distance, etc work best for you.

A couple more thoughts: in my opinion (and others), neither removing nor replacing a chip should take nearly as long as it does it the above video. You risk overheating nearby components, blowing other things out of place, etc. Adjust distance and temp until each step takes only seconds. Also, the new chip being placed above moves around a LOT. Ideally you’d place it almost exactly where it needs to go, wait for a slight settling, and stop. You don’t want to short solder balls together under there.

Make sure to note the orientation of the original chip and match it with the new one.

Just some thoughts from a non-expert. YouTube has lots of more expert information.

Good luck!!
