If I were to solder the cap to the adjacent chip, I'm not sure exactly where I would connect jumpers to...Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
So, just desolder the cap from there, and clean all very well.
You can use a piece of wire with melted rosin ( or aspirin if you dont have other), put it on the place you want to clean and heat it with the soldering iron. All the solder material will stay on the wire like on brush.
Solder the caps positive pin to the chip Q272 3rd pin ( thats where the ripped path starts). And negative pin of the cap to the 2nd pin of the chip witch is also shorted with the heatsink( top flat piece of metal coming out of the chip near to the Q272 mark on the board)
Take something sharp and cut this piece of a ripped path that is coming from the 3rd leg of Q272.
you need to scratch the other side of the ripped path near to the mark C276 and also to cut that end witch in on the air to make that point stronger. Solder a piece of wire between 3rd leg of Q272 and other end of the ripped path near the mark C276. Be sure not to short it somewhere,better use a isolated wire for that.
That`s all. If you can measure the voltage of the L281 or L282 it must be 3.3V . If there are 3.3V the job is done.Edited by niki-amc - 1/27/13 at 6:29am
