Hello ya'll.

I found and followed this thread a couple of years back - but I didn't keep up with turning the unit on, and the replacement battery died.

So I got another battery, opened the unit up, warmed up the soldering iron, clipped the top lead off the battery, held the battery with tweezers while heating up the lower lead - no problem. Then I held the other lead with tweezers while heating it, and again, off it comes. Except:

It brought the pad up with it! Crap. So, I can still see the trace that went to the pad, and the "plate thru". What's the best approach for connecting? I can glue down a foil replacement pad - but then I have to connect to the trace and the battery tab. Would it be better to solder a wire to the trace? Metallic glue? I don't want to kludge it too bad - or at least no worse than it is currently.

Thanks for any help.

This isn't a "you're doing it wrong" topic. (Originally Posted by Human Ills, 7/1/14)
