Feel like a wise man…decided that i should outsource the repair of this delicate board. Contacted someone on Marktplaats, which offered repair services. Discussing repairing right now, he has three other repair jobs which he needs to finish, but he can and is willing to take the KU board up for repairs! First recapping and fixing the trace, and he will look at the oscillator, I think it’s better to remove it, clean up beneath and then reseat it. Hopefully traces are undamaged when the chip is removed.
Updates will follow.
