Hello! I'm repairing this Old 3DS XL that had some corrosion on the bottom side of the PCB. Luckly the only damaged part was the anode (+) pad of the DL1 (it's the charging state led). Since I'm doing this with my bare eye and the help of my phone camera I can't find any trace to scrape and rebuild the connection. Can someone help me find where this pad is supposed to go? Thanks in advance!!

The pad might have an integrated via

Yeah I guess so, I can't see any via coming directly to that pad. I was hoping to find someone that has a 3DS XL on his bench which can probe around and find continuity. Since it's the charging orange led my guess is that it goes somewhere near the battery terminals or the charging IC.

Did you ever find this information? I have a board with the same issue.
