How to desolder charging and micro usb port?
first of all, I tried to replace 2 charging port for laptop motherboard and one micro usb port for a tablet and I destroyed all the boards.
I'm feeling like I don't have the right tools.
Basically, I never tried to solder anything, because I just can't desolder those ports. I don't have flux. I'm wondering if without flux I should be able to desolder?
It takes like 1 hour to remove all the tin then there still have some tin everywhere that I can't remove with my desoldering brain and the port is still stuck there. Finally, the board just burn.
Questa è una buona domanda?
Is there a guide to desoldering a mini USB port that is built into a flex ribbon cable? I would rather replace the entire ribbon but it’s no longer for sale anywhere, so my only option is to desolder the damaged port and solder a new one to the flex ribbon cable. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

@F P Old post I know but!, Always a but. If a component is soldered to a flex ribbon you can hold the iron horizontally and hold the ribbon with the component on the iron shaft near the tip on the flat bit. If you use flux it will soften the solder in no time and the part can be removed to be used again. (May need 3 hands or a friend to help)
