    Which is the best way to solder on a remote control platine? I want to
    switch the power key with a relay and know I have tried to solder two
    cables at the black contacts, but it doesn´t hold on it.

    How much experience do you have in soldering?

    I don´t have much experience in soldering. I´ve only solder some
    little circuits, but only on a platine.

    I don't know what a platine is, sorry.
    Read some basic soldering tutorials. Basically the solder joint must be
    clean. Brush the connection with a brass brush. The metal should look clean
    and shinny. You need enough heat to allow the solder to flow when you touch
    it next to the iron on the material, not on the iron. You should be using a
    flux core solder for electronics use, not acid core plumbers solder.
    Good Luck,
    Tom

    It isn´t a metal on which I want to solder a cable. It´s black. The
    contacts which I mean are under a power button.

    I meant board, a remote control board.

    You need to scrape off any coating on the metal, if its not metal you are
    not going to solder it. It should be copper or tinned copper. On a circuit
    board there is usually a coating that you need to remove.

    You might CAREFULLY scrape away the (green?) solder mask
    that is beside the black pads
    and solder to the copper underneath that you expose.
