I wanted to know if anyone could help me with the Reflow oven and if I can meet up on a Tuesday at all. My plan is to try and fix this graphics card that I got for a few dollars, but the former owner used it at work for mining and it died on him one day. I’d like to see if 8 min in the oven could possibly revive it for a while. I’ve already tested it on my computer, the fan wouldn’t t run, then took it apart and know what needs to be done, bring in some tin foil, thermal paste, and cleaning solution. I just don’t want to ruin my oven at home with fumes and cleaning so when I saw the Reflow oven, I think that it would be perfect for this. I just won’t be bringing in a PC to test it in afterward and may need to return if it doesn’t work the first time.
As the seller described, he saw no burns or damaged chips on the PCB. It just stopped working and otherwise looks fine. Taking it apart, I agree, nothing seems wrong per se. No computer shop will repair them so using the Reflow Oven is my only option.
I can share images of the board if anyone wants to look at it.
