    I'm new to the forums.I'm was trying to replace a old laptop dc jack.I got the soldering iron too hot or the desoldering wick pull up the copper pad.My question is can this board be repaired?Are the 4 outter pins negative?Can i solder a small wire from the pin missing the pad to a pin that this has the pad?I have attached a photo of the board.Don't be too hard on me about my soldering.I'm still learning.Thanks!

    Which pad lifted off ?

    I would guess the 4 outer pins are all connected to ground/- so a missing pad on one of those won't matter.
    I think the hole nearest the 2 in PL2 is for the + but a pic. of the socket would help me to be sure.

    Thanks for the replies!It was one of the outer pads that lifted up.The dc jack is a 6 pin jack with 4 outer pins and 2 center pins.I don't have to solder the outer pin that is missing the pad.Correct?Can you see the photo i posted above?I have attached a link to the photo.Thanks again!
