sounds like you have lifted a via pad m8, try and trace it back to a trace instead and make good.

These arnt for newbies im afraid, but they represent it as a easy solder solution, it is if you have modded before:Boo:

Good luck

quick tip DO NOT make wires too long and dont take them round near the motor too as the wiinja2 gets too much interferance! that was my first mistake but shortened wires and went shorter route now works fine
