Can I dry screws of solar panels and still have the junction box work?

Water got into the junction box on the back of a few of my solar panels PCB. There seems to be a bit of rusty water around the screws. The diodes look dry. Can I dry those screws and still have the junction box work?
  • You can use some acidic solution. like vinegar, lemon juice or mustard. Thinking about “stuff” you probably have around the house. Of course, other commercial-grade electronic cleaning products can also be used.
  • Mechanical cleaning with sandpaper, scraping, etc. Will provide clean and absolutely functional in no time!

Protected contacts will last ages. Make sure that any water that gets into the box has a way to get out!

Which soldering iron tip should I use?

All of the soldering I’ve done to this point has been with through-hole components. I hope to move up to some smaller surface-mount parts at some point in the future. I’ve got a Weller WES51 soldering station. There is a large number of ET series tips available. How do I choose the right tip for the components I’ll be working with?
