    Hi.

    Im looking for an alternative solder point for number 1 pad on a wiikey install.

    Ive successfully installed wires to number 2,3,4,5 and 6 pad but number one pad burnt away(this is the larger pad next to the yellow square grid on the wii).

    Any help would be appreciated pictures would be a real bonus.

    Many Thanks.

    get either a fine sand paper, or a crafting knife, and scratch the pcb protective film (the green film) then solder your point to that scratched off area

    jerry rigging like you british used to call it heh

    Thanks All.

    Not quite sure what your picture shows Takrin. Are you saying i can solder to the pad marked number 8, is this a suitable ground. The pad you have marked secondary ground is the pad i have burnt off.
