Re: BAHH 2 rainbow spotlights messed up. (LEDS wrong rotation).
There are several options/skills to be learned for "re-work" such as this.
I happen to have a second soldering iron, which certainly helps in this type of situation.
Also there's the optional use of hot air which heats an area of the board up to a point where the solder re-flows, at that time you can nudge the part with a pair of pliers to get it free. Once it's out you can clean-up the board using solder wick (aka de-soldering braid).
I just replaced a 14 pin device using hot air. First I masked the areas I didn't want getting too hot, with tin-foil. Then using a "heat gun", and moving in a circular manner, I heated the area. Once the solder went shiny, I used a pair of pliers to carefully push the legs of the IC. It popped out, and I left everything to cool before continuing.
Whatever you do... don't toss 'em. If you can't fix them, I'm sure there are people here who would be willing to help fix 'em.
