Thanks for the info guys. Is there any businesses in Sydney/ACT that have the skill/experience to replace my EEPROM. I have the two PCB's, but I just need someone to change them over?????

I've spoken to a couple of TV repair places and they are not to keen to do the job because of the risk involved.

Any help would be appreciated.

If you are in ACT, there is a place in Belconnen that did mine. They have SMD desoldering equipment. Cost $20 to get done. PM me if you need the detail.
Cheers

If you don't have a win with this mob, I'll do it for you. I've got access to a lab with the dedicated gear + the instructor - done a couple myself - no issues, provided care is taken.

Funny you should ask, I had the EEPROM changed over yesterday at Maxtech and it's working fine. Unlike you, they must have seen me coming as it cost me $60 but I'm happy with that as it was a good job.

Thanks very much for the info, it helped me out heap.

Sorry about the cost, $60 is a bit steep, we don't have any SMD desoldering equipment in our Canberra office otherwise I could have done it for nothing. I have tried with Normal soldering iron and braid but lifted some tracks on one. Best left to those with the correct equipment.

Cheers

Yeah $60 is a little steep but the job the have done is top grade. You can't even tell.

What they did was remove both EEPROM's from both boards, and change them over, soldering them back on, so I guess I had two done in affect.

Not to worry its all done now and I'm happy, but not as happy as you would be having it done for $20. :)

Thanks once again.

Yeah, keep solderwick (sorry - sodderwick) away, it can do some pretty bad damage. The way I was shown was to use this stuff which is a thin metallic strip - you heat each IC leg in turn and wiggle this strip underneath each, an Epprom takes about 15-20 mins to remove. I've done two sets of two inst cluster boards and they work fine - the key is also to limit your heat ups to 5 sec bursts, but multiple heats are okay - the time taken during a heat up is the big factor. This method I'm told is better than using dedicated IC removal gear. Using a microscope is handy - makes it so much easier, not only for desolder, but to check the new soldered joints.
