How to repair/replace PCB soldering plate

#1 Post by pcbgogo_dph » 30 Oct 2018, 02:20

Hello. I'm trying to replace a SD card reader on this board and I have 4-5 missing soldering plates that need to be repaired. I am very new to this so I'm sorry for any poor terminology as I only have very basic soldering skills. I was wondering if anybody had any advice on how to go about putting new soldering plates or figuring how to create a bridge for the connections.
Or you have a good pcb prototype manufacturer recommended

Please stay with DIPTRACE! Any other Post of "PCBGOGO" is boring.... and will be ignored!

In my experience, your only option would be to attach wires to the traces that went to the now gone pads. The way to go there would be to carefully scratch the traces in order to get the soldermask and other insulation off and then solder insulated wire to the exposed copper trace (thin copper insulated wire would be my choice - like the ones transformers are wound with).

That being said, this won't be an easy thing to do. In my line of work there are people who solder professionally for a long time who couldn't do this. But then again, how could you learn if not by trying.
