Accidently Removed A Resistor, Now Falcon Freezes. Plz Help
Posted 23 February 2012 - 10:43 PM
when soldering a wire for the rgh i accidently hit one of those little resistors (or what are they) and the heat was enough to carry it away from the board. now the falcon glitches and boots but freezes on/just after the xbox logo on boot.
So i want to know must i get the exact replacement part for that or can i just bridge the connection with solder or a little bit of wire?
+ there's another little point above that which lost the solder it had on it. I'm wondering whether that could have impact on performance aswell.
Don't want to upload the page so the photo is in the link:

I have a spare board somewhere here, but smd soldering is really not my strong side :/
I know about the size. I just slapped it all together to test if it will boot at all. I usually make them small and cover them up with hot glue

now the console boots up fine and doesn't freeze like it used to.
thanks for the help
(but you know, i wonder, would it work if i just bridged the connections?)
