    Advise Please On D2E Lifted Pad Solder Point B Wiikey 2 6 Wire

    I've gone and botched up a straight forward install and need some advice please. As you can see from the picture I have lifted the pad on Solder point B whilst attempting to install a wiikey 2 6 wires on a D2E.



    Is there a fix for this? Do I go straight to the pin that the trace leads to? Or am I snookered?

    Thanks

    Thanks for your quick response.

    I thought it would work but wanted to hear confirmation from a PRO like your good self first. Before I got stuck in. I really must lay off the heat I think, I'm getting a little over confident!

    When I first lifted the pad it came loose, but did not disconnect from the trace leading to the black resistor (If that's what it is) and the wire was still connected to the pad. So I put some more solder on it to make sure of good connection, a little too much solder possibly, and fired up the wii. I ran the update disc and all was working fine, playing backups etc, but the Wii was having problems with the eject mechanism. I didn't think It was a short. I assumed it was the botched "B" pad.

    Anyway, I will solder to the pin and just hope that that ejecting issue was a cause of the "B" pad being lifted.

    I did a European D2E yesterday, no epoxy, very fresh stock I assume. It's from Spain's largest Retailer. How soon do you think it will be before the epoxy hits the european market and apart from the alternate solder points, is the only way to install, by removing the black stuff?
