So far I’ve been able to solder the PCB and the Raspberry Pi together. I think I may have screwed up with the screen so I have to order a new one... The screen lights up white but I get no picture. I’ve ordered a Multimeter to test the connections but I’ve got to wait for it to arrive, I will attach a picture of the ribbon connector and the screen I get. The next update will probably be Saturday as I’m waiting for the Multimeter. However big thanks to everybody for giving me tips for getting it fixed. I HAVE NOW ORDERED A MULTIMETER. Hopefully people will stop telling me to get one now. Lol :D

Have you got some flux for desoldering the solder splash on the ribbon connector too?

Not yet, I've been looking online at stuff, have you got any eBay recomendations? Don't want to get anything that is wrong. I do have a solder sucker though. I do keep that clean regularly so It is in great condition.

Please please watch and practice before trying to fix your board...
