So, I had the bright idea to try and repacle the 2x3 header on my nfc shield with a passthrough one, so I could stack the shields.
Having removed the last shield with great difficulty, I found the solder still remained on the board, and without any tools to remove it, me being a clever chap tried to scrape it away with the soldering iron (I’m clever, I know )
I then realised I’d probably destroyed some tracks round the header (see pic), but decided to proceed anyway, attempting to solder the new header, which I couldn’t do. The solder would just not stick to the pins on the new header, it would just ball up.
I left it out, and now cannot upload programmes when the shield is plugged in. I’m feeling like I need a new one, but if theres any way I don’t then I’d be grateful if someone could share.
Hope you enjoyed reading, and am laughing at my apparent lack of any intelligence,
