i cleaned that board up...took my time with tape and the pen...AAANDD IT FUUUCKIN WOOORRRKED!!!!
the wierd thing is, the shorts were still there during dump and during reassembly.
i read, erased, flashed, figured out the stupid(me) blaster ck3 switches and after 14 hours straight im playing backups...no sweat, piece of cake.
thanks for the help anyways, i kinda figured/hoped/prayed i would nuke it out before someone answered due to me posting so late last night.
ps. the alcohol being 70% IPA is what made everything a PITA, i grabbed some 99% and some acetone and the stuff was coming off in places that looked clean...i cant imagine what was going through the walmart ladys mind at 3 am, prolly thought i was making meth.
and...i know i know, im like the least handy person i know, my wife has to put all the ikea stuff we buy together cause i manhandle it....i realized that if i had just stayed calm and patient the first cuts i made wouldve been fine and the board wouldnt look like a 2 year old teehed on it...
