    Let me open the title as follows. I have the same problem in the video here. There was a lack of contact problem with this USB stick. I also learned that the solution to the problem is to change the USB header, but unfortunately, I bought the copper under it while removing the header. I said maybe if I put solder on it, it would be fine, but unfortunately it didn't.

    The solution to the problem is stated in the video I found from a source, but I could not find the locations of those elements in my flash memory.

    How can I find the electronic components shown in the video from my memory?

    Hi, if the solder pads have broken away, you'll need to add some small guage wire to act as bridges.
    You'll need to use a multimeter if you can't see where the tracks go.
    Shine a light under the PCB and you may see where the tracks are connected.

    Thanks for your answer, so can I just solder the 4 pins of the usb connector to whichever circuit element it goes to?

    Hello there
    I guess it looks comfortably which road goes where where should I connect the cables?
    2 of them look good and bad but the other 2 are unfortunately not quite clear

    Yes, two of them are not clear. Try turning the board over and shining the light again.
    You may need a multimeter to check continuity of the tracks and which component to connect a bridge to.
