Ruined micro-USB pads on the circuit board, can I bypass it? TB8504F/X
After my attempt at repairing my ageing tablet led to very predictable outcome of me catastrophically &&^&^$^ it all up, i am here to humbly ask if anything can be done to salvage this situation.
While trying to replace my broken micro-USB port, for some reason I didn’t just gently lifted the blasted thing from it’s place after applying appropriate amounts of heat - i foken wrenched it with very inappropriate amount of force. And, to my horror and absolutely zero surprise, along with the port came bits and pieces of the PCB. Those tiny little pads? Gone.
After some swearing and google searching i found a video where dude sorta “bypassed” similar issue by buying micro-usb pinboard and just soldering wires directly from it to the existing tablet motherboard. But for the life of me i can’t find any info if it was very specific circumstance or it can be done on virtually any device?
Can something similar be done in my case?
