I built a like-new(but really refurbished) iPhone 6S 16GB entirely from parts I bought in the public cell phone parts markets in Huaqiangbei. And it works! How much did it cost? Answer here: https://youtu.be/-KucQDXnKws I've been fascinated by the cell phone parts markets in Shenzhen, China for a while. I'd walked through them a bunch of times, but I still didn't understand basic things, like how they were organized or who was buying all these parts and what they were doing with them. So when someone mentioned they wondered if you could build a working smartphone from parts in the markets, I jumped at the chance to really dive in and understand how everything works. Well, I sat on it for nine months, and then I dove in.

This video is showing you how to repair graphics cards AMD-ATI Radeon or Nvidia with BGA problem. Why Reballing ? The graphics chip is soldered to the board with hundreds small solder balls (BGA) and one or more solder joints crack with time due to the thermal cycle witch creates thermal stress (contraction and expansion https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Thermal_stress) and the graphics card stops working, old thermal paste or paste with bad heat conductivity and clogged cooler increase the thermal stress, with this procedure we replace the solder balls and resolder the chip to the board and the graphics card works again. I prefer reballing over reflow because reflow is not a long term solution and the black screen or artifacts will return again soon. A proper reballing is more reliable and is the preferred GPU repair method. Watch also my other videos about Reballing - Rework.

We randomly found a cashier-less, employee-less convenience store in Yiwu, China, and of course we had to try it out. But once we did, I was dying to know more about how the technology worked. So I took some of the RFID tags back to my apartment in Shenzhen, and started taking things apart! This is the last video from my trip to Yiwu, China with Collin Abroadcast. Go see the first two videos: https://youtu.be/RDd10-poMm8 https://youtu.be/rQ-kUmxLHl4 Want to know more about the microscope in this video?

Today we're visiting JLCPCB (https://jlcpcb.com/e), one of the largest prototype PCB manufacturers in China. We're getting an exclusive factory tour of one of their newest printed circuit board factories in Huizhou, just outside of Shenzhen, to see the PCB manufacturing process step-by-step. Are you an electronics geek or a DIY enthusiast that loves soldering projects that's always wondered how to make that PCB? Today we're going to see how it's made!
Thanks to JLCPCB for sponsoring this video!
