So I haven't soldered in years and only have experience with through hole soldering and large components. Today I attempted a repair with a HTC Vive controller. I know where to solder and managed to do one side but the others points where I had to solder I think I've screwed up. So my question is how do I fix this? (If it's even possible) And was it the result of too much heat?
I know how to repair trace points and pads that lead to obvious places but these pads I think which are test pads I don't have a schematic, any ideas?
For reference this is what I intended to do to fix my broken power cable. https://www.ifixit.com/Guide/How+to+fix+broken+power+button+ribbon/119514?permalink=1#comment-694934
I know they are test points. I need to solder to them because the ribbon cable connection on the main board on the other side was damaged, this bypasses that. If I have lifted the pads is it possible to fix ?
