Could you post large (less than 1meg), clear, detailed pictures of both sides of your board showing any soldering you have done and the connections to it?

Hi,
Although the solder joints are really bad looking i tested everything for continuity with my multimeter and there was no shorts and everything was fine

I ordered two TV-B-Gone kits from Amazon.com

One works. One does not. Testing showed that one of the microprocessors is defective.

Is there a way to get a replacement microprocessors for this kit?

Contact the Amazon seller and ask them.

Amazon will replace the complete item. I will have to return the complete, assembled and tested unit. I would MUCH rather just purchase a replacement microcontroller if possible.... Oh, wait....

I requested a refund from Amazon, then placed a new order for a new, kit. AFTER the new kit arrives, I can return the defective microprocessor with the unassembled kit and I'll be in business!

Thank you!
