    My friend gave me a broken in half ds. I opened it by melting off the area's surrounding the screws since I didn't have a tri-ring screw driver. I accidentally melted off the battery connectors. I tried to solder it back on but it doesn't work. What did i do wrong?

    Dude, you could've bought a tri-ring screw driver on the internet, they go for pretty cheap.

    But yes, melting would be bad. >_> And..you're experienced in soldering? Because, I would think that soldering would fix the problem..I dunno man.

    What'd you use to melt it? You might've damage components as well...
