So after measuring my resistor and ordering some spares I broke the weak connection in the corner of the board reinstalling it.
So I had to locate a new place to resolder a connection. I spotted an unused solder hole just to the left as I followed the trace.
I heated up a pin to push through the solder then clamped it into place.
Then some flux and solder - it's now secured better than before.
Now to understand what I'm up against. The solder point it on the back of the board, I am basically soldering blind - memorizing cell phone pictures to get my plan in place.
This is the top of the board after the work was done, the solder side is facing in towards the bottom of the PEB.
Lo and behold. It lives! it hungers!
