Need help looking for trace or via for smt (lifted pads)

I tried repairing a mainboard with a diy smt repair kit by removing the old smt with excess solder on both sides of the smt and accidentally lifted some pads, anyway i can still continue or am I screwed? I did some searching and it looks like i can use wrapping wire and solder it to the smt to a trace or via? Don't know where to put them..

I tried doing the diy repair because there aren't any replacement part I can buy. The TV I'm trying to repair is a vizio e470va that doesn't have a picture when turned on.

Yes you can, but you will only by soldering small wires from the traces to the component. You will need to scrape those traces until you expose the copper for soldering. Follow the solder pads and you can see the traces they connect too. If nothing else run a jumper wire from the next component on that trace to your tore pad. I recommend a scalpel and a magnifying source. If you can tell us which board this is and what the number on the board is, we might find one for you.

Ok so what I did is show how the pads are situated and where those traces go. Hope these images make sense to follow the traces. I also attached the schematic for U418 itself so you can check the pinout.
