Question about Uniden BC60XLT-1 Handheld Scanner
The charging plug has been broken out of the scanner. I've tried to use batteries but it didn't work. A person at radio shack told me the circuit has been cut, which is why batteries wouldn't work. When I took the scanner apart, I see three points broken off the circuit board in a small white square named J3. Any ideas?
If I am picturing this correctly I see two senerios, you have a 3 point pad and the trace is broken between each of them. Then you could try soldering a #30-36ga buss wire across each of the breaks. Use a very fine tip low watt soldering iron and 60-40 solder with very little flux. Delicate operation, use patience. You should take the board out of the case if possible. If your are really "good" you could "pull" a solder bead across each break. The other picture I have is the whole connection is pulled up. Down side is you may have also broken the solder pads inside and through the board. If that is the case can't be fixed. But try re-soldering it back down to the board by pushing down at the same time heating with a soldering iron. Hopefully you won't short anything. You may get lucky and suceed.
