Introduction

This guide will show you how to replace the battery connector. This replacement is necessary if a new battery is installed and the device still won't work or if the wires break. This will use a screwdriver and a soldering iron. Be careful when using the soldering iron as it is very hot. There is a link to a soldering guide in the Troubleshooting section of the device page.
