Tried to repair the corroded power switch on my old Gameboy Color over lunch, but ended up pulling the whole switch off the board when I tried to pry the cover off, and it pulled up one of the pads. :(

Tried to re-solder everything, but there’s still an open connection somewhere because it doesn’t power in at all now. (Used to power on ~1% of the time due to corroded switch)

I’m concerned the pad may be hard to repair. :-/
