So I'm trying to fix a tv by replacing this transformer, but I don't really have any soldering experience. First I have to de-solder the bad part to put in the good one. The problem I'm having is, the transformer has eight pins and once I move from one pin to the next, the pin I just heated is cooled. I just purchased a de-solder bulb that sucks up the solder, which has helped a lot, but I still can't get it out because there is still some solder on the pin. So I was looking to the pit for any tips or ideas to help me out.

Thanks!

Also if pictures will make it easier, let me know and I'll get some up.

After I walked out of the store I thought maybe I should have bought the wick besides the bulb. Ill give that a try if this still doesn't work. Oh and I'll try not to drop it, only burnt myself once so far

I don't have feeling in the tip of my right thumb, or right index finger thanks to a soldering iron (well, the pads of the finger and thumb, more than anything)
