    I think it really is solvable. First thing i'd do is this:



    But we still need to see a better picture from the other side of an "untouched" board, cause there probably are more tracks damaged...

    Got it!

    The second track runs around the edge and connects from pin 4 (reading left to right) to a via just above where it reads U13 on the board.

    If some fine wire (e.g. Kynar) could be jumpered to these two vias from the socket pins, it won't look pretty, but it may just fire up again.

    Anyone care to give a second opinion on my diagnosis?

    Edit: @ Salaxi - thanks, that's exactly what I was thinking.....

    I wouldn't mind doing it as well. But i must stress that we need a very fine pic of the original, from the top side. Gotta spot what/if anything else is cut.
    I'd do it for shipping charges only of course..

    Thanks for the support there old spuddy

    And I agree, thanks a million to all those that have helped in figuring this all out.

    Thanks to both Bebek and Salaxi54. You guys are super!
    Bebek, seeing you live down the road from me, I thought if you would be so kind to accept my offer to wire it up for me... I'll send you a PM for more info as I simply don't trust myself to do the soldering

    BTW, this thread seems to be getting an insane amount of views.

    I think this calls for nomination of modder/idiot of the year or thread of the year

    Not an idiot, you just didnt think. But bare in mind for the future, those tracks on circuit boards arent just there to make them look pretty
