    Help!

    I just got a used geo 3 and it was turning on and everything was find but said low battery. therefore was gonna change the battery so i could air it up to test it out, unfortunately when i took the battery out one of the silver conductors fell off the board and it looks like one of the little hooks has snapped off, the other connector also came off the board but has both hooks still attached.

    What i would like to know is if these are literally hooked onto the board or if they are soldered on. and would my best course of action be to send it to planet for them to have a look at or see if i can get a spare to slide back on.

    Thanks in advance

    @StewartW @STONESOLDIER

    From knowing a little bit about circuit boards. Normally, things shouldn't be just hooked on, due to you don't want them to move and possibly short out against other trace runs and parts of the board.

    I would think they're supposed to be soldered on, my S.W.A.G is that they'll say to send it in :)

    Yeah. That should not have been removed ;) they're soldered on. You can email robert on customer.service@planeteclipse.com or take a bash at resoldering it yourself.

    Only downside to replacing is that you'll need a whole new board.

    They are easy to re-solder back on just be careful not to overheat the soldering iron.
