    Hey guys,

    I started soldering in my cyclowiz today, and everything was going well until my solder pad came off the trace....what should i do? I got it to stick back but it came off again, and I dont think its possible to solder to that trace. Theres no solder left in that area so you cant solder to anything, you cant just add solder there and connect it that way can you?

    Thanks for your help.

    those points are absolutely the tiniest things i have ever seen... thats nearly impossible. there is no way to "recover" the pad?

    you are talking about the trace to the chip itself right? because that point is so small! the green point in that diagram is what fell off of mine, the trace to the chip on there is so ridiculously small that it would be close to impossible to solder to that. my soldering tip is the smallest i could find and its bigger than that.

    If you can't solder to the IC leg then send it in to a modder that can do it for you.

    You asked what to do and I told you what to do. If you can't solder to it then have someone else do it.
