I'm glad you found the problem. About the conductive ink: yes, and the electronic components' suppliers usually have them. You'll find silver- and golden-foil conductive ink. I preffer the silver ones, but golden foil is told to be better. As I always tried them in small, low-current repair, I can only say the golden-foil (the one I have) does the job.
Just be carefull when "painting" the faulty trail; do not allow the ink to spread around, because you'll create new conductive path, and this is not what you want, right?
There is also the self-adherent cooper foil, mentioned a couple of times in here. It has a conductive ink and may be the best solution instead of the conductive ink. I was given a fairly piece for using in my calculators, and if I am no wrong, at www.chomerics.com you can contact them and ask for a sample, say, for teaching purposes.
Success, my friend. And best regards.
