It can but that would be very rare (ie cracked chips and the like). It can also SOMETIMES help with a solder joint that broke but only expands when heated up. Mainly though its for unsticking stuck parts....for the simple reason a PCB swap works MUCH better for fixing those probs and doesnt have any real downside as its a perma fix not a temp "please last long enough to get the data off" fix. :)
