Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

  • With the help of a spudger, gently pry off and remove the battery cable retainer on the back casing assembly.

    • The easiest access to the battery cable retainer is where the battery cable comes out.

    • You can also use the two small tabs on the side of the cable retainer. Locate the tabs and release one at a time. Be a little careful not to push the cover in and re-lock it.

This is a great guide. It allowed me to execute the repair and do so without and damage. Just be careful with the triggers they can move and get caught while closing everything up.

With your Vita connected to your PC and the Content manager application running, on windows right click on the vita and then properties and the battery percentage will show up.

I had the same issue do you think you just need a new memory card? I'm hoping that's all it is even though they aren't cheap it's cheaper than a whole mother vita...
