  • Battery holder repairs

    Hello everybody.

    I wasn't sure who to email about this question so I finally decided to add it here. I really hope you can help me.

    The thing is, as you may have guessed from the
    subject, is that my Batter holder on the motherboard
    is damaged. The metal clip that holds the battery in
    place has broken off and therefore my battery keeps
    falling out unless I use something to stick it down.
    Do you know of a way where I can replace this or buy a
    complete new battery holder without having to use
    sneaky tricks to hold it down or without having to
    replace the motherboard.

    Thanks for any help!

    P.S. At the moment I'm using 'Blue Tact' to hold it
    down although it's very annoying and it just looks
    plain horrible.

      So it is actually possible to replace the battery holder on the motherboard then?

        the way i see it every thing is replacable its just a question of how much trouble are you willing to go through to get the parts

          if all else fails, you could always try soldering the battery to the board(although you might want to get a new battery to solder on, one that isnt a button cell).
