Bush Dab Radio power jack repair video

This morning I recorded my first ‘fix it’ video when attempted to repair a faulty power jack on a Bush Dab radio.

The radio was donated to me, after the previous owner had tried and was unsuccessful to find a lasting solution.

Expecting it be a dry solder joint, my first plan to re-flow the solder, ended with snapped wires and lots of time lost removing old glue holding the power jack in place.

Watch the video below to find out what I should have done first.

Helping hands, great when soldering small parts
