what i use to do in my electronics class... which isn't trhe best idea but it got the projects working ... is to strip a copper wire and pull some strands out like 2 or 3 i would stick with 2 cause its only a led then solder them to the led then drop the led in to place and solder on to the orignal spot and then on to the copper trace anywhere eles you can
Thanks for the advice. Looks like I will try to hardwire the LED this way.
Looked everywhere today, and no where sells copper foil, thermoset epoxy, or any types of circuit board repair kits that can be used to fix mounting pads.
I have one question for you though...
On the back of the LED, there is a T that designated polarity for the LED.
If the side of the LED that has a missing pad is on the bottom of the T, is it a ground, or not?
