Burned Madcatz Fightpad


#1

I burned the home button on my pcb. Can this be repaired? I cant be soldered anymore and there aren’t traces that I can see. There is only one pin size dot where the signal is coming from. Is there a way to bridge it?

If you are able to follow that trace to the correct pin on the encoder chip, you could solder there, but that point is more critical a spot that the area you pulled off

This is why you don’t use solid core wire.
