I used to erase eproms with sun tan lamp, it worked nicely, but the chips were quite hot ! Crazy ... but better than spend money on a UV eraser when you have this lamp at home already.

If anyone interested, I can desolder chips from cartridges for you, let's say $1 a rom piece Cheesy
...but I cover the PCB with oil to save the rest of the contacts from the residual solder, so it will be oily and filthy, and I don't have the nerves to clean it Cheesy at least not completely, so don't expect me to do it.
...and I leave the cart opening to you too Tongue
...AND I won't desolder the rom from a nice game, must be some shitty sport or something.... you know...

LOL, what's the matter?? What's the deal with that?? So will you desolder Castlevania for example?? Tongue No sh*t, this is just a pile of crap....

jesus 1$ is a cheap price.  Desoldering iron heads need fairly frequent replacement and they're not exactly cheap.

It is. Only wine can get better with aging  Grin

Oil? Ha! I use WD-40 sometimes to spray under chip. It depends on PCB and shape of pins. Want to clean it fast? Use engine cleaner spray Grin

Well it is when you have home-made desoldering machine Cheesy no need for head replacement. I'll try to make a photo of it sometime Cheesy

And 2MaarioS: No, I won't desolder Castlevania, or Mother, or Gradius, or even Ninja Hattori Kun. That's my rule.

I found a video of a guy desoldering a DSP1 snes chip in about 2 minutes using his gas stovetop and plyers.  My stove is electric otherwise I'd be all over that technique.

80sfreak....wd40 is highly flammable...that a good thing to put near a heat source?

I don't have open fire around, also use towel to put PCB on it to keep workplace oil stains-free
