: Please excuse me barging into your community:I have a question. I damaged a TV circuit board, actually breaking off a corner crossing two circuit lines. I also have removed a multi pin connector and made a mess of it all. Are there places that will repair such damage? Do you know of one? If not I plan to make a valiant effort to repair this board myself or destroy it trying. It's from a SONY TV and they don't sell the boards. Any help would be appreciated. If someone out there can do this type of one off work I'll gladly pay. Thanks,Larry

Hi Larry,
'Been there, done that!! Many years ago I was partners in a T.V. repair shop. We had to devise many creative ways to repair cracked/broken pc boards. Generally, in most cases we replaced the broken circuit traces with solid (kluge) wire (28awg or 30awg). Try to follow the same path that the traces took. You may be able to repair the broken corner with Epoxy glue. Do not use the quick 5-minute type! It may be quick, but it's not very strong, and it can not take much heat. Use high-temperature (slow hardning) Epoxy (JB-Weld works well). Take your time, and try to do a neat job. If you don't feel good about the repair, then do it again! (being able to sleep at night is important!).
