u need 2 scrub more, includin the backside which is hard 2 get 2. try usin somethin 2 hold the scrubby and start workin back and 4th. u should c the pins change color (their not actually changin color, the coatin is just completely removed). it feels like ur doin 2 much, but u need 2. its not just a wipe wipe thats it. keep goin, u'll b fine.

yeah and dont wipe too much with the alcohol swab either. at least dont let it drip onto the surface next to the pins. mine wouldnt start either until it dried up.
