Hi,

This is my first post here, I've lurked for some time and found the site really useful - now it's my turn to ask for some help.

I've nearly finished fixing up this beast of a passion job - my friend gave me a bent switch. Now the final fix is proving to be the most difficult, the main board side of the game card reader FPC connector. I've replaced the connector twice but the actual pcb has a slight warp which has caused difficult in getting all the pins properly soldered.

I'm now at this point: The two highlighted pads under the pins have been ripped off, I've found easy solder points on the actual game card reader to solder wires to and plan to hard wire the ends of those wires to the main board. I'm having trouble finding alternate pads on the main board, I think they might exist on the bottom of the main board.

Can anyone help me find a location to resolder these two pads?
