You could do better at getting the solder out of that place, but looking at that tear shape it seems to me that the connection is intentional.Just tried to remove it with solder wick. looks almost the same will upload another img. Have not checked continuity yet as my multimeter is at my unit.
Doesn't look like a solder bridge to me either - I agree with the suggestion to use solder wick. That will clean it up and show any track that's under there.That does not look like a solder bridge.
If it is a bridge, get some solder wick and wick away the solder bridge.
Well, if all else fails, you can always call up the datasheet of the EPROM and see if these two pins are/can be connected.There is no tracks under there, Just the dark green part of the PCB but I think its burnt through the dark green part and connected the 2 pins together.
If you look at the enlarged photo of this area, you will NOT see any traces going to either pin. That usually means that the two pins are POWER pins - in this case, they are probably GROUND. Look on the other side of the board, too.Thanks for the help everyone but I just cant stop getting continuity between the two pins. Think the PCB is screwed.
