How to repair/replace PCB soldering plate

Post by dpinghu » Mon Oct 29, 2018 2:37 pm

Hello. I'm trying to replace a SD card reader on this board and I have 4-5 missing soldering plates that need to be repaired. I am very new to this so I'm sorry for any poor terminology as I only have very basic soldering skills. I was wondering if anybody had any advice on how to go about putting new soldering plates or figuring how to create a bridge for the connections.
Or you have a good pcb prototype manufacturer recommended

Hi, I don't know if you managed to find a solution to this at all but I did see an informative video about PCB pad repair in general here:

From the pictures alone, it's not completely clear but I am guessing the old SD card reader was ripped from the board and subsequently pulled the pads off with them?

I think there are two ways of doing this considering how much work you want to put into the repair. The first is the method shown in the video which, while is very professional, is a lot of work and needs special materials and equipment. Or you could just try exposing some of the traces on the boards and soldering some jumpers wires to them directly. Crude, but gets the job done.
