I had the same problem, but after reading here and watching utube, soldered the diodes back in place myself. Takes some patience.... but doable.

I had 2 off but a thrird one had a broken solder joint, it looked attached until I gently pry’ed it up, Resoldered it and now it works perfect.

Fwiw, solder wick works great for unsoldering and cleaning up boards when doing repairs.
