see this thread:

where someone successfully repaired a blown fuse in his Z using silver paint so as to avoid soldering! This would be a really safe way to install a bluetooth module in a 6000!

It's not so easy. The conducting paint has a very short working time before it gets to setting on you. It has no physical strength when dry and it has a significant impedance compared to a soldered joint. Also, for the first few hours after application it has a high impedance, too high for todays electronics.

I use it a lot for mending ribbon cable (the sort that connects a screen to a laptop) but as a replacement for soldering it's not really up to it.

Bypassing a fuse is not normally a good idea as it is there to prevent damadge, and if the fault hasent been fixed then you can say good bye to your hardware

back to the topic, soldering isnt very hard to do, and you could probelly find someone to do it for you if you dont feel like investing the time and money, as for safty there is no way i would consider this to be "safe", even if the alternative is jabbing a 100W soldering iorn into the guts of your PDA
