Detatched Connection
« on: January 15, 2013, 01:01:00 PM »

I am trying to build a ps360 controller and when desoldering the analogs I pulled the copper connection out with it the copper wire isstill there I was wondering can I just run another copper wire from analog to the connection on the other side of wire?

Without knowing what version of controller you're working on or seeing the damage it's hard to say. The spot you've damaged may only run to one place, or it may be a thru via that goes to more than once place.

There are 8 connections per Stick there that are needed for the Hall sensors (not potentiometers) so 'the connection' doesn't really help narrow it down.

Upload it to PhotoBucket or some place like it, then post the link in here.

If you're going to put text in a pic that's supposed to explain something, it's nice if it's large enough too be read.

You'll need to prep that Via on the other side of the board and solder to it there, or all the way back to the MCU on the L3 lead.

I'd be surprised if you're not missing some other Vias also, since that's one of the easier connections to desolder.

I actually did the same thing on the R3 tact switch.once I solder to the mcu leg Wat COM or other connection do I use. I work in oilfields so I'm pretty much rough with everything I touch including my wife

The other ones that you didn't mess up are the best place to get the COM 3 connection.
