Help with LiteOn PCB repair?

I damaged my LiteOn DVD PCB a while back when I attempted to do the MRA hack.

I'd like to get it back into working order and my guess is that it's an easy fix.  My problem is, I don't know what to do for the fix.

I found this diagram that's supposed to be for the Lite-On DVD "Fix" points. ... 2.JPG/full

Here are some pictures of the damaged PCB:






Hopefully someone can help me make sense of that "Alternate FIX points" diagram and I can get my LiteOn working.

Find a nice level surface to place your soldering iron on.

Put it down in it's holder.

Turn it off.

Walk away.


I've seen a LOT worse, but I really think you are better off getting somebody else to patch that up for you,  before you damage it further.

EDIT: This is also, not really the right place for such things.

Thank you for the response.

Close thread.  (didn't realize these questions couldn't be asked here.  sorry 'bout that.)
