Default Little circuit board help

Please Login to Remove!

So I was trying to solder the charging port cause it got loose. I bought it like that for $50 well I noticed a solder pad is missing and was wondering if any one can help me out on either how to replace a solder pad or find the trace for it.

Didn't knew charging ports are that expensive !

do you mean the Track where you solder the port to PCB is missing ?
do you see the track broken near the port (if iam understanding it correctly)

I would have tried to use some strong glue to fix the port on PCB if iam able to connect the pins to the circuit.

Charging port wasn't $50 I meant the phone. One of the pads that the pins should have connected to is missing. I dont think I can precisely glue a little pad on the board lol

If the solder pad is missing your pretty much s.o.l.
You would need some pretty specialized (read: expensive as hell) equipment to repair it.

If you can find a good electronic supply company around you....they should have stuff to etch your own boards. Specifically...small, round "tabs"... that should work
