    This was before the original capacitor fix and fire attempt, sorry I don't have an after for the cap fix and before the fire.

    This was my poor attempt to save the board after the fire, OMG!:
    I don't believe I attached the capacitor right leg to the correct location even here. it was more of a guess, because I don't have another board to compare to that is undamaged.

    Looks pretty bad but might be repairable. A cap should not blow like that unless it is overvolted. Not sure what happened here. The board does look king of corroded too.

    Yeah I may attempt another repair on it after I get a picture of another board that someone is sending my way . It'll be a close up of the area so I can see what the layout was like before the missing pad. Or perhaps I can send it to my friend who was interested in doing the repair. It would be a shame if we lost the Nv1, 1 less for this already rare breed , lol
