Lead-Free requirement for service
Regardless of special logo (not always indicated)
One must treat all sets from 1.1.2005 onwards, according
Important note: In fact also products a little older can also
be treated in this way as long as you avoid mixing
solder-alloys (leaded/ lead-free). So best to always use
SAC305 and the higher temperatures belong to this.
Due to lead-free technology some rules have to be
respected by the workshop during a repair:
• Use only lead-free solder alloy Philips SAC305 with
order code 0622 149 00106. If lead-free solder-paste is
required, please contact the manufacturer of your
solder-equipment. In general use of solder-paste within
workshops should be avoided because paste is not easy
to store and to handle.
• Use only adequate solder tools applicable for lead-free
solder alloy. The solder tool must be able
o To reach at least a solder-temperature of 400°C,
o To stabilize the adjusted temperature at the
o To exchange solder-tips for different applications.
• Adjust your solder tool so that a temperature around
360°C – 380°C is reached and stabilized at the solder
joint. Heating-time of the solder-joint should not exceed
~ 4 sec. Avoid temperatures above 400°C otherwise
wear-out of tips will rise drastically and flux-fluid will be
destroyed. To avoid wear-out of tips switch off un-used
equipment, or reduce heat.
• Mix of lead-free solder alloy / parts with leaded solder
alloy / parts is possible but PHILIPS recommends
strongly to avoid mixed
solder alloy types (leaded and lead-free). If one cannot
avoid, clean carefully the
solder-joint from old solder alloy and re-solder with new
solder alloy (SAC305).
Use only original spare-parts listed in the
Service-Manuals. Not listed standard-material
(commodities) has to be purchased at external
Special information for BGA-ICs:
- always use the 12nc-recognizable soldering
temperature profile of the specific BGA (for
temperature profile, in case of doubt)
- lead free BGA-ICs will be delivered in so-called
'dry-packaging' (sealed pack including a silica gel
pack) to protect the IC against moisture. After
opening, dependent of MSL-level seen on
indicator-label in the bag, the BGA-IC possibly
still has to be baked dry. This will be
communicated via AYS-website.
Do not re-use BGAs at all.
For sets produced before 1.1.2005, containing
leaded soldering-tin and components, all needed
spare-parts will be available till the end of the
service-period. For repair of such sets nothing
