I took my ACE HD to repair shop, he had brought my Multivitec Monitor back to life earlier that year.
He didn't seem keen on the job at all, but I left it with him.
I kept popping back in and he kept giving excuses as to why he hadn't even started.
After a month I went back and said to just give me it back and I'll do it myself. I was pretty miffed with him, he told me he hadn't really wanted to do that job as it would be a 'Lot' of work for him and not worth it.
I bought a desoldering 'Hakko' and had a crack at it. It was time consuming, but easier than I had expected.
The moral is, have a go. You'll probably surprise yourself!
