Question about padhacking

So I was just wondering if you mess up the pad from bad soldering you can just flip over the PCB and solder to the TP points or vice versa. Or are these connected in such a way that if you mess up the TP point representing the A signal, you mess up the big copper pad on the other side of the PCB?

Thanks for all your help people :smiley:

the PADHACKING thread

it was literally 15 or so threads down on the first page…

common man, act like you know.

Forgot to mention that I’ve posted this question in that thread but with no luck getting an answer, sorry if this cluttered up the forums.

judging from the looks of the pcb you posted in your “soldersucking accident” thread…

you need to practice more or get someone who knows how to solder to do it for you or youre gonna end up killing the pcb and throwing money away.

to answer your question… yes

look HERE for the proper solder points for that pcb

but im going to be honest with you and im not trying to be mean when I say this but I dont feel that you have enough experience with soldering to work with such small connection points.

No I no man and I’m not offended, I just wanted to know if there was a relationship between the TP points and the copper pads, wich by reading your answer there is not.

But thank you, that was just what I wanted to know :slight_smile: And I’ve re-soldered another PCB (the first one was given to me) and it looks ALOT better now :slight_smile:
