I tried that and unfortunately it didn't help. In fact, I now can't get a connection between the leads. I'm guessing it's the break on the left blemish. Is there a way to bridge that gap? Maybe carefully tape it off and paint a conductive material over the break? Or would that mess with the impedance?
Looks like you may have a small puncture on the lower left side and the lower middle section. If so, adjacent traces may be shorted. Difficult but not impossible to repair.
