AFAIK all electronic products these days use Lead free solder due to enviromental laws. (ROHS)
Ok thank you both for your answer.
I am from Romania, so it's a long way from here to U.S. so it's not worth to send my console to you because i'll pay another 40 $ for shipping there and back again for even more(i'm not sure how much exactly but i'm just guessing around that money) and i'll have to wait a lot of time for it to come back here. I found today a guy who lives in the same building as my father does and he does solderballing, i talked to him today and he told me that he'll charge around 40-75 usd, he said he's not sure because he didn't saw my console yet. i'm going to show him my console tomorrow to take a look at it and tell me his price. He told me he's giving me 4 months warranty for the job and he's gonna have to test the console to see if the job it's done well before he'll give me the console. I told him i'll leave him the console on this week-end for the job. I'm gonna talk to him tomorrow and see if we'll come to an agreement and I'm gonna tell him to use leaded balls if we make the deal.
