Finally, I just have been enjoying a repation evening. I followed all the steps of Photogem's guide and, although my total inexperience in such fine work, I am very glad to tell you that my K50 is alive again. It takes fotos so clear and sharp like before.
Thank you to all the people of this great forum and specialy to Photogem for your kindness sharing your knwoledge.

Thank you to all the people of this great forum and specially to Photogem for your kindness sharing your knowledge.
You are more than welcome and particular: Well done! It shows that somebody completly unexperienced to this kind of work can do it.

Great instructions! The photos you have posted make it very easy and my K30 now works like new again.

I was concerned about doing such microscopic soldering but, after borrowing my nephew's SainSmart Pro32 iron, it was quite easy. I got a bit stuck on the rubber USB cap - my K30 has one but perhaps not all versions do.

My only suggestion for improvement: there are two photos of the left side but none of the right side!

You're welcome, that's what it was meant for!

Yes, looks like a good soldering iron, similar to the NovelLife Mini TS100.

All K30's have that cap. This USB cap is easy to deal with if you take the complete -rubber-grip off.
Otherwise the USB cap will be stuck between the back-side (with the display) and the front.
As soon as the grip is completly off, it is straight forward. Also "glues" easely back on into position.

Already changed, thanks. I had changed most photos to better ones and didn't notice afterwards.

Hi,

thank you for the instructions. Was able to repair my daughter's K50. It was easier than expected. I printed the picture as suggested and it was a real helper to place the screws on.

Thank you and have a nice holiday!
