Well, it certainly sounds that way. You may have to do the same experiment that I had to do by gambling on which pins are the right ones, unless someone with the necessary know-how turns up in this thread. You could take a look at the PCB and the chips inside and try to figure out which chip is the one to do the bridging on. Maybe taking a good sharp photo of it and posting it here could be helpful.
BTW: Did you check both sides of the PCB?
Maybe you saw the opposite side of the PCB?
