Use the search box to find a thread with the exact same name.


There are userful instructions near the top of the first page, from Misha, and at the very end, from chasen.

Chances are either the battery lost contact during the jar, or the daughterboard got knocked loose from the motherboard. Either way, it's a simple fix. Take the 4 screws out. Don't drop them on the floor; you may never find them again! Check the battery connections; it's like a cell phone battery.
