My tablet will not turn on after some DIY repairs

My tablet had screen flickering issues and after some research, I decided to unplug the battery and reconnect. Little did I know that the battery connector on the motherboard breaks off super easy. So then my only option was to re-solder the pins to the connectors, which I did but it still won't turn on. Some of the connectors won't accept the solder so I super-glued them, but still nothing. Any advice would be great, I called UbreakIfix and they said the base cost of repair would be over $300, which I cannot afford. Should I call Samsung? Thank you for any help.

luke.puller , Very big mistake using the super glue for trying to make a electrical connection as it could do the opposite and become an isolator. Probably best to just take it into a good local computer/cell phone repair shop and have them take a look and estimate repair. The whole board can be purchased for $120.00 and can probably be found used for a lot less if need be. Good luck.

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