Search the fine SMTnet Archives for contacts, while you await other responses.

When you say something went wrong in the screening process, do you mean that the paste is splashed (prior to reflow)?

If you are lucky, you might be able to chip the solder off the fingers with an Exacto knife and then polish it up with a pink eraser. This does work if the solder on the fingers isn't wetted very well.
