    lol, ok trip to maplin in the morning... I have kinda hashed up this one...) It looks like the little siver circle in the green circuit board has come away with the solder i removed. I just have a brown circle like wood effect, no silver connection... hmmm, can i just dab solder back over it and it will work?

    Flux is acid paste, it helps metals bond together (and it works wonders).

    Once the silver circle is gone its done for, unless yo ucan follow where tje trace leads and solder at that place.

    Practice soldering on that dead mobo , and soldering wires together.(once you egt the flux).

    First you put the flux ( take it with a toothpic, not with your hands its acid ). Than put it on the wire or connection , take the solder and put it on the tip of your iron until it gets silver. Than put the soldering iron on the wire or connection. Dont put it too long , the components are sensitive to heat.

    A lead free alloy solder containing a non- corrosive flux. This solder is 4% Silver 95.5% Tin & 0.5% Copper. We recommend this solder for use with the iron-clad and nickel-clad bits supplied with our soldering irons. Solder is available in 1mm 100g, 250g & 500g reels. The high Silver content improves the conductivity of the solder & lowers the melting point, improving the flow.
    This is direct from the maplin site for the exact solder i am using

    Tin does not conduct.
