Quoted from vireland:

Maybe, maybe not. Hopefully there wasn't enough power sent in to fry the traces to the chip. That's a fun repair.

Doubtful. I had U20 blow due to a wire with damaged insulation hitting a flipper leaf switch. Hit it so hard that is physically blew some of the legs off of U20. No traces were damaged.

Good. Now no more working on games with the power on. Yeah, it looks cool having the game on while you work on it until something like this happens

Quoted from grantopia:

Best thing I ever did was get a junk pcb and practice soldering and desoldering stuff in. After about 15 minutes you get a good feel for it, doesn't need to be a pinball board .

A $250 Hakko desoldering gun can become your BFF realllllllllllll quick.....sure beats waiting 1 to 3 months for your board back when you have the gun, the chip, and the socket to DIY.....
