I was installing a chip on a 1.6 and i messed up a few traces, resulting in a frag.

These tiney gold lines are incredibly small. How do you go about repairing these?

Thanks in advance.

This would depend on which traces you have stuffed up!!!
You will need to trace them back to a point where a wire can be soldered and then solder a link across the open track to the other side where a point is large enough to solder a wire...

It should be stickied!

I messed up a trace on a 1.6 mobo when sodering the first wire after the do and activity llights. I'm going to try this guide and hopfuly it will at least boot up.

One other thing i do have a question about is the actual silver piece that was attached to the trace, that lifted off and now I have no clue what to do about that.

If you are saying you lifted the track on the little circle pad you soldered a wire to and now its open circuited the track, you need to run a wire following that track from where ever you can solder it to, and bypass the open circuit by soldering the wire across the damaged track to another point...
Maybe a pic of your damage and some more help may be given ????

I know it's real easy to do....That's why the PCB 1.6 LPC rebuild board is OK...Coz it makes it harder to stuff the tracks by lifting them..... smile.gif
Good Luck and maybe send him a pick or how you bypassed it???

Well, I fixed my mobo.

And i must be missing something because I dont see how that plate could keep me from being forced to solder wires.. if someone could clear this up for me that would be great.

The PCB lies across the bottom of the mobo and has solder points at all of the traces for the LPC rebuild. Takes about five seconds to line the thing up and get it all soldered. Just stick a pin header through after that step, finish up the solders for that, and stick the d0 wire to the appropriate place on the PCB and you're set.

THe big problem with the PBC rebuild is that it doesnt tell you to attach the PBC untill you get to the LPC rebuild part which is LONG after youve installed the pinheaded. i find that a bit annoying, but oh well.
