Default Rockford Fosgate punch p500-2 wont power on

this unit was given to me by my boss who said it wont power on anymore.None of the power/outputs appear shorted but the unit shows no sigh of life -no current draw no lights .any tips on where to start on it .the source legs on the psu fets have 12v on them but no gate voltage ,I'm suspecting the pwm is not working corerctly

What's the DC voltage on pins 3, 4 and 10?

If you can get to all of the pins, post the voltage for all pins on the IC.

It appears that either the timing capacitor has shorted (unlikely) or the 494 has failed. Pin 5 generally reads ~1.5v.

You don't need a special soldering iron. What sort of iron have you been using?

The cheapest soldering iron that I'd recommend is a Weller WP35.

If you apply additional solder to both sides of the IC so that all pins are bridged, you can heat one side then the other until you get the solder molten on both sides then you carefully lift the IC. You then carefully desolder the pins and install the new IC. If you have a large tip, it will bridge between pins. After you get all pins soldered, come back and remove enough solder so that not pins are bridged but all are properly soldered down.
