I have a piece of equipment that has a CF/MD card on it. Somebody tried to force the card in and broke 2 pins off. I managed to replace the two pins temporarily, but it was kind of a hack job, but it works for now. What I want to do is order a replacement part (the part is ELCO 5620). I have a hot-air rework station but I don't have very much experience with it.
Can someone give me a run-down on technique I should use with the re-work station to remove a 50-pin CF/MD card connector. For example, what temperature to use, nozzle size, how long to heat, how to remove the component, how to prepare the site to put the new one on, etc.
Or maybe a link to a good tutorial. I have looked around for tutorials, but all I see is info about removing SMD chips and resistors, which typically aren't surrounded by easily damaged/melted plastic.
