On/off switch soldering help for a "taken apart" mp3 player. Answered
So i'm currently trying to do one of the instructables right now, which calls for taking apart an mp3 player and (in my particular case) unsoldering the on/off switch and replacing it with another switch (an SPDT switch). The trouble is, I've never messed around with something like this before, so I'm not really sure what I'm looking at. I'm wondering if anyone more experienced with electronics/soldering would be able to help me out.
I just want to know what I'd have to unsolder to get the switch off of the board, and if there are any suggestions as to what to expect when it comes off. Looking at it up front there seems to be two metal solder points on either side of the switch, and three small flat rectangular metal things sticking out from the side opposite of the switch itself. I'm not sure if those are soldered or what they do. Can someone help me?
