I too had this same issue. I found that even with my soldering iron set what I would consider high (overhigh(over 700 degree's F) I could not really melt the solder from the factory. At best it became a little pliable. I got one exterior connection free, but like the others mentioned, the middle pad pull completely off even taking a little of the board underneath with it. I tried jumperingjumper a small wire from the whereribbon cable to the trace startssmall round pad in front of the damaged area but havewas not been able to make a good connection. As a result I to have the new battery connected butconnection so it will not charge. I likeliked the conductive silver paint idea. I'll have to check locally atThe local Radio Shack but I havehad a feeling it's somethingCircuit Writer pen. I needused it to order.

Has anyone else had any success
fill in repairing the torn away middle pad?damaged area up to the round pad in front of it.
Once dry I soldered the the outside pads and then barely heated the center pad to get a little liquid solder touching the silver ink. I have solid connections on all 3 pads now and the unit charges.
