Could you please advise how (or where) to repair damaged KAF3200 CCD chip?
This is version w/o front glass. It has 3 golden wires, which have to be bonded back to their pads on the ceramic package.
Surprisingly chip still works but it's picture output is very noisy or not readable.

 If all else fails you could use a tiny tip and some no-clean solder.
