    Default Missing overcoat

    Going through my SSRs replacing all the triacs and ran across this:

    Do I need to worry about this or get an overcoat pen and repair it?

    you need to solder a wire over that. if not, you will have dead channel just as the whole family is watching the show.


    2020 Full sized show reworked for the new location. Only adding (famous last words) 13 RBLs that I finally got converted to using pixels
    2019 - Just moved into a new home (yet another change of plans). Will be dim but not dark. Too much to do at the new place to leave time for a show. Dim show (3000 pixels) had regular visits most nights.

    Coating is just a protection from you shorting to another trace. Looks like the trace is still there and intact so nothing required, but I’ve used a little super glue to seal/protect in the past

    In our environment the coating also provides protection from moisture. That area is now open for corrosion. SuperGlue will work.

    Nail polish also works. Any color will do.... as will clear....

    Even though the DIGWDF Store has been closed for more than a year, it's still awesome!
    User guides, documentation and other files are still free and available for downloading.

    I thought that might work, but wasn't sure. Thanks!

    I caution the color nail polish. Today’s product may have color pigment containing electrical carrying property. Clear should be ok

    Would conformal coating work as well?
    I use the acrylic type from MG chemicals on new boards, just brush it on.
