and putting the other chip back on.
If you took the chip off like I describe above, then you have solder already on the pads on the board and you shouldn’t need more.
all you need to do is place the chip in the correct orientation and then tack down the pins using the iron.
start with diagonal opposite corner pins, then tack all the rest.

sorry you can’t see half of the pins being tacked down, but I couldn’t figure out how to hold the chip in place and show it on video at the same time…
