    I was trying to solder clk pad on the back of the motherboard, and it appeared connected. The wire moved, and the pad appears to have come off. The same thing happened to the alternate clock pad on the other side of the motherboard. Now my 3ds powers on, but after a few seconds powers off with nothing appearing on the screen. Is there any way to fix this besides replacing the motherboard?
