Reworking TSOP chips without the right tools is no fun, but it can be
done even with just a very warm soldering iron, and if the chip
doesn't have to be re-used it's even easier. (Just cut off all the
pins and then use any soldering iron and a soldering wick to clean up
all the pins and the solder that held them to the mainboard.)

There are TSOP sockets that could be installed where the chip used to
be, but I haven't found them available in smaller quantities than
what would cost a few $100. (Maybe have some though.)
