Help with damaged BrickPi


#1

I have been using the Brickpi for a few years now and it plays an integral part in a lot of my robotics projects.

Unfortunately one of the SN754410 chips burnt out (probably with over use), and so I brought it to my school and tried to get the chip replaced with a solder rework station. However, some of the tracks were damaged too and I don’t know whether the other components were also burnt; I don’t want to risk my Raspberry by testing it.

The only reason I see for the failure was because I’ve been using it quite extensively; I didn’t do anything else wrong.

I’m in a dilemma because I do not know how to resolve this, as getting a new Brickpi is too pricey. Would you have any idea how I could attempt to repair it?
Thanks in advance for your help!
