Broken Gamecube component. Help!!

Post by anidragon3 » Wed Oct 13, 2010 4:15 pm

Hello, I was building my GamecubePortable and a small component broke off :wtf: . It is labled C176. I was wondering if I would be able to bridge with solder and if it will still work??
It is on the underside of the motherboard with the memory cards. I will work on getting some pictures up.

The side of the board with memory cards? Didn't know the PSone screen had memory cars :facepalm:
He didn't say Psone screen moherboard he said Gamecube motherboard. :facepalm:

I wouldn't bridge it with solder. Most likely it is a small surface mount cap. Try to run the Gamecbe without it and see if it still works properly.
