I was hoping to replace the last few parts on the board and throw it together but a couple of pads and a circuit trace came up that I now need to repair. Looking into doing it right with dry film repair but trying to find someone with some experience in it to point me where/what to get


great overall project !!!!!!

i suggest for board repair you contact Eric D.

i copied his technique to do so......

to repair a trace, strip an ftp cable and use one of the 8 copper wires....

I have done that way as well as a couple of others but I have always wanted to know a better way to do it and the dry film repair looks to be the way.
Image
If you look at the 2nd set of contacts from the bottom on the right you can see where a pad had come off and a repair was done using solder wick. Technically nothing wrong with it but there is a cleaner way.
Image
Here I put the new pad down. The kit I got doesn't have pads this big so i am cutting them out lf the frames of others so its not a perfect circle by any means and I have not poked the hole in it yet. It has an adhesive that is heat activated by the soldering iron to hold it in place
Image
Next you poke the hole in it and insert a through hole collet. There is another tool in the kit that looks like a center punch that you use to push it hard on both sides and wedge it into place. A little bit of solder then completes it.
Image
after that point its just a standard install of the cap. This amp had someone do some repairs on it before and 6 of the 12 caps had pads lift so I am getting plenty of practice now with this.

started putting it together. I get all the way to this point when I realized that I made the rca cable about a 1/2" too short....
