Repairing a broken Circuit Board is easier than it sounds! The circuit board forms the base of almost all modern electrical devices because of the ease in production at large quantities with remarkably little cost. The most common design of circuit board is a thin, plastic layer etched with copper traces connecting a number of components. When a circuit board fails from electrical malfunction or physical force, permanent damage will occur to any combination of the board, traces and components. It may be possible to repair the board, depending on the severity of the damage.
