I've got the board out, and theres about 9 small solder points on the board, looks easy enough if i had the right equipment.
What i want to know is, is it as easy as it looks, can anything go drastically wrong? (there doesnt seem to be an tracks etc in that area of the board) I need a new soldering iron as mine is quite big, but if i bought a cheapish iron with a small tip off ebay, and a solder sucker as well would i be ok?
Is it just a case of heating each point and sucking the solder away as it melts, then repeating for all the points and then just pull it off?
Then i assume it would be a case of re-heating the points, push through a cocktail stick etc to open up the holes, push the new jack in, and put a dab of solder on the back of each leg.
Is that all there is to it or am i missing something/is it harder than that??!! Also will any solder do or does it have to be a specific type?
