    I have lifted the cmd pad on a 3ds xl i soldered to it fine but knocked the wire that was connected to it and it disconnected and pulled the pad up with the wire, I still have the pad. What are my options do I have any, are there any alternative points, or is that the end of the road for this particular 3ds xl anyway.

    aye thats was the main problem wires to big so the accidental tug lifted the pad had it been a smaller wire there would of been a chance it wouldn't of damaged it.

    The grey wire is 2 strands of ide 80 cable if it turns out to big can snip one of the strands and im going to replace the other one. Well aint doing shit without the middle pad at the minute, i suppose.

    Considering your pics in the other thread, I do not believe you have the skill level required to fix it. I think your option is to send it to someone who can, or buy a new one. When a pad is lifted it makes it A LOT harder to solder to. If you want to attempt it, heat the epoxy a little to make it easier to peel off around the SoC chip and gently scrape the enamel off the trace. Use flux and solder your wire to the trace. Use a little hot glue aftarwards, so you don't pull out the trace.

    Something like this, takes creativity because you need to trace the contacts.

    Judging by that picture, it looks like you may have destroyed the components around where the wire is soldered, though I'm not sure.

    nah its just where ive accidentaly touched the epoxy with the iron there are no burn marks on the board pic looks worse than it is. Im getting stable ohm reading off all connections and have checked for continuity and am getting no bridges.

    I was thinking of the 2 small chips below the wire (not sure what they are)
    Are you getting that error without anything connected to the other end of the wire?

    That's how it should be, so it seems like everything is in order, and you shouldn't worry too much about what the error says.

    If the wires are all properly connected as you say, it could be that they're switched around, or that your wires are too long. It could also be your SD card reader that doesn't support MMC.

    Nice. I'm actually impressed that you managed to fix what many would consider a lost cause. Did you scrape the trace in order to get it soldered on?

    Yes i heated up the epoxy first decided that wasnt doing anything and just scraped it down in around the trace with a needle till i saw the gold/copper trace. I actually soldered a wire to it twice i did something very similar to the first post. first time I got the cable on i realised the cable track was going the opposite way so i was faffing about with the cable and tugged it off the trace. second time i got it back on, was alot harder than the first time could barely see it, however this time had the super glue open ready got it connected checked it with a multimeter about 5 times and then glued the cable track in. I also had a lot of help from dark_samus over pm.

    not something i want to do again.
