I broke the connector where the ribbon cable from the battery attaches

To whomever might be willing to help,

I noticed significant battery drain and purchased a new battery. I have 2 of these devices and have replaced the battery in the other with no problems.

When I detached the cable from the old battery I noticed a black piece from the device (where the battery connects to the pins) broke/chipped off.

After installing the new battery and plugging it in to charge the device turns on, flickers a few times and turn off.

If I put pressure in the general area of the connection in concern it will work fine. However,the second I let off the tablet flickers and/or turns off.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. I'm not sure what the name of the connector is in order to search for a replacement part.

Thanks in advance for your time and help,

BJ, if connector is still connecting with a little pressure applied but the lock tab broke off, perhaps you could tape connector down and build up a few layers of tape/shim so when device is together the connector has pressure on it to retain connection. Good luck.

I hope this helped you out, if so let me know by pressing the helpful button.
