I did both, but likely not exactly the way you should, might also be the $8 soldering iron I bought. I might get into this a bit more now that I know about SAYAL, they have half decent prices on cat5 cables and the like as well so I will be going back. I really like how I fixed it for 1/10 the price Samsung wanted (not including shipping)

Also an update, while my first soldering job isnt anything I will be writing home about, it was good enough! Its been on for several hours with no explosions or burning smells
