How to revive the copper plating on TFT

by ggoma on Sat Nov 11, 2017 12:31 pm

Hello,

I've recently purchased and used TFT 3.2" (https://www.adafruit.com/product/2616) to create Pigrrl Zero Plus.

The project malfunctioned, so I had to clip off the pins at the back, hoping to retry.

While clipping off the solder/pins, the copper wires came off--making it no longer possible to solder.

Is this still usable / fixable? If yes, how? $40 for the screen was quite an investment, so my best hope is to fix it and use it.

t looks like those two pads are connected to the other set of pads at the bottom center of the photo. If you follow the traces, you should be able to solder your connections there.
