I have a sony 27 inch tv whose front RCA jacks didn't function properly. The audio worked (right and left channels), but there was no video (well it would display if I put pressure on the yellow connector at a certain spot. I got a replacement part and spent the better half of the day desoldering the old av jacks and installing the new ones. The solder points looked fine and I didn't think swapping out the av jacks was going to do me much good. I however noticed after replacing the part that one of the solder pads was somewhat lifted. I don't know much about solder pads or how they connect to the underlying copper networks in pcb's but I could only assume that this was why I didn't have any video input (solder pad was directly connected to video rca jack). I end up taking some braided wire tinning the tips and soldering from the lifted solder pad to a resistor that was in series with the video trace on the pcb. I don't know for sure if the lifted pad would've made the proper connection or not but I didn't want to take my chances (video shows up fine now). So my question is, is it harmful to have 2 wires placed in parallel between 2 components? (Want to make sure that even if the raised solder pad is somehow making a connection to the video trace on the pcb that the addition of a 2nd connecting wire will not cause any problems).
