Solder Pads Detached During Removing Micro Switches? (Logitech G303)
First time soldering, i practiced on a few cheap mice and got the hang of desoldering and resoldering the micro switches pretty easily, however for whatever reason the solder simply wouldn't detach from the solder pads on my g303 i spend hours trying and eventually i decided to just try pulling them out little by little with pliers after heating up the remaining solder on the pcb, but it seems to have taken off a few of the solder pads (I believe that's what they're called) with it? Before i try messing with it some more i wanted to ask first what i should do, do i need to try and replace/improvise the solder pads in order to solder on the new switches? Or is there a work around? This is my first time doing this stuff so excuse me if any of my terminology is wrong, i will include some pictures of my pcb below.
Is this a good question?
