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.

I really enjoyed Your article ! I'm about to replace the touch pad, i got a Vita recently but it has some Heavy scuffs. I've seen the back touch pad has adhesive attached on it. I bought a replacement On Ebay. I'm not sure if the replacement has adhesive with it. If it doesn't what would be your guys Thoughts on what i should use?

I can't get pass Step 1. I can take out the bottom left screw of the rear touchpad but I can't take out the other 3. I bought a used Vita and there is a screw that turns but does not gout up. What should I do?
