Repairing lifted pads is not inherently difficult if you have the rights tools and a bit of experience. Here’s an example of work I did on an iMac when a customer pulled the screen out too forcefully ;>). A good soldering station, some thin gauge enamelled wire (36 - 42 AWG) and some UV-Curable solder mask and you will be good to go. [image|1670566] If you can find a local micro-solderer, they should be able to fix that for you which will be much less expensive than replacing the logic board. I don’t know if @danj does micro-soldering work but he can certainly help you out.
