Step Lines

[* black] We can look at the motherboard and check to see no scorching or broken connections appear on the wires, power supply jack or antenna.
[* black] Since we have determined all the connections and components are fine we need to the microphone wires and the 4 wire connection from the motherboard.
[* black] You could de-solder the connections from the motherboard using a soldering iron and a solder sucker.
[* redblack] The connections to the microphone are on the bottom left once the motherboard has been flipped over on it's side. This is shown in the first slide.
[* orangeblack] The connections for the 4 wires connecting the LED board are in the upper mid right side, almost opposite the microphone's connections once the motherboard has been flipped over on it's side. This is shown in the second image.
[* yellowblack] The last thing that may need to be desoldered depending on if it is needed for re use with a replacement motherboard or if it is damaged, is the antenna. The Antenna's solder joint lies just above the microphone wires connection to the motherboard. Show in the last image.
