Thanks for the help. Successfully change my battery.

One problem that people might run into is the device not recognizing the battery firmware if it is an aftermarket battery and not a genuine HP one. Where the device will work but only if it is plugged into the charger. It even shows the battery charging but very slowly. If you disconnect the charger the device will instantly shut off. What is the fix for that?

Why must the flex cable be disconnected? If you are able to secure the screen in proper position it does not appear that it would interfere with the battery change.

Na vervanging batterij aangesloten op charger, witte led knippert enkele malen en gaat dan uit. De batterij indicator in windows geeft niet aan dat er geladen wordt. Wat zou de oorzaak kunnen zijn?
