"Lifting a pin" ? what is that and how do I do it?
« on: April 18, 2016, 03:49:26 PM »
Hi,
I got some advice in the tech section to "lift a pin" on pin#1 of an 8 pin chip. What does that mean? How do I do it and what does it accomplish?
Thanks,
Brad

Bend it out so that it doesn't go in to the socket

Great, I was hoping it was something like this. I was afraid it involved cutting traces or somehow modifying the board.
Thanks,
Brad
