Tsutomu Niimi, if the connector broke of the logic board, there are only two solutions. One is to get another connector from an old logic board and have somebody knowledgeable with SMD components solder it on. The only other way is to replace the logic board. UPDATE
If the brown part is off the white part, you can try and replace the clip with an old one from a spare board. If the white one is off the board with the pins sticking out, you can try and slide the white plastic back over it and use some glue to glue the plastic onto the board. If the pins are bend or dislodged you will have to get a new one soldered onto the board.
Hey I don't know if you still need an answer but i've managed to fix my Ipod Video with the same problem. I did it the cheap way and with Super Glue!
Basically I broke the retention clip off the LCD connector which is on the logic board.
I found that I needed the LCD display to be on in order for Itunes to successfully detect my IPOD, and use it (obviously).
Because the retention clip is missing, it means you can push the ribbon cable all the way "through" the connector and it won't get contact with the pins on the logic board, this is why with mine when you push the ribbon half way into the connector it'll light up, but then when you push it all the way through it goes black again.
What I did was, and it's incredibly easy, is push the ribbon cable into the connector with the missing retention clip, hold it in place so the screen lights up, and applied superglue to the connector and edges of the cable, and it worked fine. I did this while my ipod was on and connected to a computer. I didn't really care if I stuffed my ipod completely though.
Can post photos showing it going/ with the cover off and missing retention clip if needed.
The conclusion of a solution for battery cable problems
1)Only the brown connecter was broken
You should order a new part this site, and reinstall it.
Then it could be OK, and your iPod would be resumed.
When a white part have been removed from the logicboard.
(Very serious problem, no adhesive can help this problem.)
A situation is told to below by e-mail or Fax, and you send parts, and have you solder to a logicboard again.

Also I introduce this company homepage and weblog.
"Re-soldering of the connector which has taken the ipod board"
Sorry, although it is a Japanese site, but I think that it turns out that I introduce if you have a photograph and movie seen.
I think that there is no company which has the technology so far in the world as far as I get to know.
Do not give up, Good luck and God bless you.
