"The shipment has been tested, it should not be!"

I understand his point he cannot lose more money with you but the issue here is to prove that the damage was not done by you and because of poor components.  My task here is to help you and not enter into such arguments so the doubt always remains from a seller point of view that you did something wrong, it's his own polite exit from such matter.

If you need help here there are a lot of ppl willing to help you just do your part and take it as a challenge and do not give up.

I can only read in this forum, I counted at least 7 people that are saying they got no reply on the same issue 511c.

Blame the end user for a mistake or something else is just unfair since from here it is clear something went wrong in his components supplies since all said that the PCB was working fine.

I do not have any interest nor I sell anything related to Unisolder, I am here to help, learn and improve my Unisolder with add on mods etc.  Re quality I cannot say anything since till today I never seen a tindy board.

Last not least mistakes happen if that is the case not the end of the world for loveDiy.
If LoveDiy response here and take responsibility and help all users with legit problems it would be nice.


Up until recently the feedback from lovediy was helpful but when i reported the issue i am facing right now, it was "The shipment has been tested, it should not be!"


I just hope ill be soldering with my JBC tips soon :/

Already thinking of just buying a cheap chinese station that takes jbc tips.

I guess stay away from Tindie seller?

The first back board i got in the kit was faulty and got replaced after a bit of troubleshooting but now the second board i still have issues with. the seller is communicative but yea the quality seems sub par. I have ordered most of the BOM and got a new hot air station so I am thinking about redoing the backboard. But yea at first i just wanted a solid station which i didnt have to solder a board for myself, but it looks like I have to anyways..

If you want a tested one that works more than 15 mins yes.
If you want to buy from China @vulkan35 is Ok at least no complaints so far and he is not an invisible man and if you have issues you can contact him.

FYI: If you are EU Member from next 1st July you will have to pay VAT + handling fees so if you want to buy from china hurry up with few days left to avoid expensive charges.

If you are from Europe and want ready assembled just search eBay for USED from time to time, my friend bought one at a good price €140 free express shipping to Italy,  I cannot find his eBay store sorry, seems they are out of stock, I have checked his work under the microscope not bad, the important is that all parts match all the BOM of sparky which is fantastic and was told they are from Digikey genuine.

In my case, C1 is the same on DC and AC (24V) however on DC if you check for AC voltage you will find 0V instead of 10V +- on AC.
I asked you re-model since I read here that some models do not work very well. If you need any measurement to compare I can also help with the scope if needed.

By any chance have you checked what Sparky suggested which is for the CURRENT DC to DC being low for 2.42".
Have you tried the 0.96" it will be a good test?


Well.. the issue also persists with the original display. And the cartridge also doesnt get hot so that makes me think the front board isnt powering up at all.
