    burnt solder pads on D2c chip. need alternate solder points.

    I messed up an install of a D2pro9, and I need some help on fixing the burnt solder pads. I bridged 3 pins together when I didn't realize I had a blob of solder on the iron. The pins I bridged are the ones above and below the 'D' pin on the D2pro9 install diagram. To make things worse, I burnt the solder pads for these pins removing the solder. I am going to need to rebuild the trace with wire, but I don't know where these two pins above and below "D" go. Does anyone have alternate points for these pins so that I can fix this? The chip is a D2C.

    Thanks,
    -J

    Thank you GMODZ.

    I was able to get things cleaned up on the chip, but in the process I pulled off the pad where clock "C" is soldered. I am assuming this pad is where clock run through the board to the back somewhere and that I am going to have to jumper it through. Does anyone know where that point would be?

    Thanks again!

    That's what I was planning on doing, but doesn't that trace go somewhere?

    or is the fact that the clock signal is now going to be supplied from the D2Pro9 make that trace obsolete? If this is the case, is it true for orig discs as well as backups?
    Thanks again for your help!

    GMODS,

    Thank you very much for your help. I think everything is working, but my first backup didn't seem to work correctly. Here is what happens (going from vague memory of last night)

    After I installed the D2PRO9, I put in an orig disk. The modchip flashed red, then blue, then I think it flashed red then blue fast a few times and read the disk. Everything worked great.

    Then I put in my backup. The chip flashed red, then blue, then I could hear the disk trying to spin up, but it sounded like the laser was having a hard time reading. The drive speed sounded like it got slower and faster, and I heard some clicking (not as bad as what I've heard on drive clicking videos on youtube though) After a few speed up and slow downs, there appears an error message on the screen... something like "An error has occured, eject the disk and shut down your WII."

    Does it sound to you like the modchip is actually working but I have a bad backup? Or should I switch my attention to the chip.

    I should mention that this is a D2C WII and I purchased a D2PRO9 V3 chip before I learned that there may be issues with V3 and D2C.

    Thanks again,
    -J

    That's why I figured it may be media.

    I am using a DVD-R, Memorex brand burned in linux at 2x. It's all that I had around. I have one Verbatim DVD+R that I can try.
