just opened kit - sealed pad

by justlearning on Sun Mar 16, 2014 12:15 pm

We are starting on the kit but didn't notice until second piece that one of the pads at position R5 is sealed. :( We'd like to be able to figure out how to proceed without returning the kit. Is there a way to open a sealed pad? :D

Sealed in what way? Was it never drilled out, or is it somehow plugged with solder? Can you post a picture?

It looks like it was never drilled out. I did try heating the pad and using our wick to see whether I could get it cleared and poke something through, but that didn't work.

Sorry about that. Please email support@adafruit.com with a link to this thread for a replacement kit.
