my iron of soldering

i have a 25 watt radio shack soldering iron. i cant seem to desolder anything with it. dou you think the wattage is to low for the n64?? its worked for other things....
i might get a new (weller) one if its to low
Heck, I use a 15w Radio Shack iron and I've never had any problems desoldering anything. Maybe your technique is (somehow) messed up?
A 25W or 30W iron is the right size. A 40W one is a bit big and a 15W one is a bit small. You might not be doing it right, or maybe your iron is junk. Probably the former, no offense.
