This chip consumes quite a bit of power, meaning it gets

Note how large the heatsink is. The chip itself can take the high temps

This is the bottom of the board. To fix this problem
you need to use a pencil tip soldering iron and reheat
each solder joint. I'd also recommend adding some additional
