    I think this is the common BCM problem. Here's a good write up on it:

    It is.. Took me maybe 30 mins to pull it and fix it and put it back in.

    Because I believe the BCM is assembled roboticly and someone forgot to program it to use enough heat/time to fully solder on those particular pins.. But hey I'll do you one better here you go.. These are the areas that will need fixed/resoldered..

    Also remember not to directly touch the board.. Hold it by the edges only.. The oils and static on your skin are/can be deadly to curcuitry..
