Repair Sommer Door Opener Remote Control

I had several of these sitting on the shelf so I decided to take them apart and try to repair them. I was looking for the obvious and I found it. One of the components becomes loose and needs to be resoldered. Puling the circuit board out is fairly easy. I used needle nose pliers. Once circuit board is out look for the loose component as shown in the photo.

Once you have pulled out the circuit board, look for the part shown that needs to be resoldered. I have about a 75% success rate to resolder this part on to the circuit board. I was happy with that. This is my first instructable, but I wanted to share. thanks, Norm
