    • Set the soldering iron to 300 °C (575 °F) and wait for the iron to heat up to the desired temperature.

    • Depending on specifications of the soldering iron, it should take between 25-80 seconds for soldering iron to reach desired temperature.

    • The soldering iron tip will be very hot! Be careful when handling the soldering iron during operation.

    • Different solder may have different melting points. Refer to any documentation provided with your solder to determine the recommended temperature.

    • Avoid setting the soldering iron to very high temperatures and stay within your solder's specifications. Prolonged exposure to high temperatures can lead to component or board damage.

    • Locate the solder bridge on the circuit board.

    • A solder bridge typically bridges two separate contact points (rails).

    • A multimeter can be used here to check for continuity (a short).

    • Apply the solder wick to the affected area.

    • Place the solder wick on top of the solder bridge and heat the wick using the soldering iron by pressing on top of the affected area.

    • The solder wick will be very hot! Avoiding touching the area of the wick near the soldering iron.

    • Alternatively, use wire cutters to cut off about 2 cm (0.75") of braid. Use tweezers or needle nose pliers to place it as described above.

    • Continue to apply pressure with the soldering iron to the solder bridge until the solder is melted and absorbed by the wick.

    • A soldering flux can also be used here to aid in the desoldering process by reducing oxide films.

    • Apply the soldering iron to the contact point.

    • Once the contact point is hot, reapply the solder to the contact point.

    • The repaired area will be very hot! Avoid touching the area being repaired.

    • Continue applying the solder to the contact point until the pin is solidly attached and the rails are separate from each other.

    • Step 7 verifies circuit continuity.

    • The soldering iron tip will be very hot! Be careful when handling the soldering iron during its operation.

    • Hold down the dry sponge.

    • While the soldering iron is hot, use a rubbing motion across the sponge to remove excess solder off the soldering iron tip.

    • Connect the red (positive) probe to the Voltage and Resistance Socket.

    • Connect the black (negative) probe to the Common/Ground Socket.

    • Set the multimeter knob for continuity testing. This is typically labeled with diode/audio symbols.

    • As shown in the photo, the multimeter will read "OL" if the steps above have been followed properly.

    • To ensure the functionality of the multimeter, touch the two probes together and an audible beeping sound should be emitted.

    • Verify the circuit board does not have any current supplied to it prior to performing the next steps. If a current is present, permanent damage to the multimeter is possible!

    • Connect the black probe to the circuit board rail where one end of the solder bridge was.

    • Connect the red probe to the circuit board rail where the other end of the solder bridge was.

    • If the fix is successful, the multimeter should read "OL" on the screen, indicating an open circuit. There should be no beep, which means the rails are no longer connected.

    • If the fix was unsuccessful, the multimeter will give a numerical readout on the multimeter screen, and beep.
