  • 820-3115 - Hole in board. Can it be fixed?

    It's just getting really hot as soon as I give it power.

    Is it possible to fix something like this?

    You can try to dig/drill it out, but any times it is a waste of time.

      In that area it will never work. I have tried to dremel that out in a livestream and got to the point of dremeling that entire section of the board off just for kicks, and still shorted - that's one for the bin.

        Oh wow, 2 people saying it is trash. Now I would definitely try and fix it, no joke. I'd like to see it fixed, but I never take the time for these projects.

            I've repaired several boards that looked like that, but it always takes a long time (several hours of scraping, isolating, conformal coat protecting, running wires around holes, etc). Not worth it unless your profit margin is respectable for that repair.

              It depends where the hole is. In that spot particularly on that particular board model.. good luck.
