If the board "needs pressure" what you have is broken circuit trace or a lifted pad. The pressure will only work for a while, if you are lucky.

Get a magnifying glass and do a thorough visual inspection of the circuit traces until you find the crack or. Then flow some solder over the crack, preferably with a thin strand of wire to bridge the gap. This repair will be permanent.

PS If you must ignore the above... Do not put hot glue on or adjecent to any components. The heat and thermal contraction of the glue can damage fragile surface mount components. RTV silicone (clear) is the prefered method for circuit cards. It is flexible and does not require heat. It takes 24 hours to dry though, be patient

Hey EP! All good with me, applying for Microsoft MVP right now, should have done this a while ago.

Notifications don't work, I only found your response by coming back to hunt up some threads, if you want, give me your email address so we can keep in touch easier!

EP, glad to see you come back and tidy up...did want to ask a one day favor, I want to enhance my resume , was hoping you could make me administrator for a day, if so, take me right off since I won't be here to do anything, and don't know the slightest about the board, but it would be nice putting "served administrator osnn", if can do, THANKS

Been running around Quora lately, luv it there!
