Neopixel connector help?
« on: November 01, 2020, 03:18:22 AM »
Hope this is in the right section- apologies if it needs moving,mods!

Uhh... little help,please?

Through a total miscue of some sort (didn't even realise it had happened until afterwards),I managed to get solder splatter on the operating pillar of one pogo pin of my KR hiltside connector,while I was tinning the neighbouring through-hole pads,& the solder must have bled into the moving side of the pin as it's gone completely solid:




Attempting to wick the solder away hasn't had any success... anyone had a similar problem &/or a solution,short of removing the entire pin & seeing if Khal can do me a spare?Kicking myself here,no luck with soldering at all.

Thanks in advance for any advice,people.

dead cause IMHO, even if it comes mobile again, it will not be smoothly moving and will probably remain stuck at some point. Replace it.
