Mike, I had the same problem. Or at least a similar one. I was separating the two halves to replace the battery and the entire white plastic cradle part that attaches to the motherboard just came off the circuit board. It came apart effortlessly! It was as if it was barely attached to begin with. Poor quality circuitry!

I'm hoping for an answer here as well. I'm willing to solder if that fixes the issue.

Hi, this might come too late but, just below where the battery connecto once stood, there are three solder points correnponding to each of the battery terminals, just solder the battery directly there...
