    i could put a picture on this forum tomorrow for him but we did solder it on the right way because i just saw the review for the ez4 lite and the picture he is talking about is for the ez4 deluxe. So since i did solder it the right way what should we do

    Got a DMM? Can you verify the battery carries a charge and is connected to the circuit properly? Did the contacts sever at the battery or on the circuit board?

    The battery is used to supply power to SRAM in the MFC to retain data when the bus has no power. If it ripped off the board, the circuit or a related component or PCB via may have been damaged. If you had to solder the other end directly to the battery, the heat may have damaged the battery. There are options to replace the battery, with the correct part number you are looking for a rechargeable type wrather than a single use battery. IIRC Panasonic or Sanyo makes identical replacements with mounting tangs (the information is posted on the unofficial EZ forum somewhere if you need it).

    About the best I can do is give you images of the deluxe, but that won't help verify other components weren't a problem.

    If you want serious help, you have to seriously co-operate and try to understand. I cannot beam skill to you, so if it is beyond your ability to do what I say without me looking over your shoulder... then you are a consumer who should buy another one, as it is far cheaper than me coming over there to watch. If nothing else, print what I put and take it to your teacher and see what they think, or at least be thankful these devices aren't around $200, so the loss isn't as bad as it could have been.

    I am still wondering, which part did break off - the part of the tang towards the battery or the part towards the circuit board. Without some sort of clue as to what (exactly) you had to fix, I have no idea how extensive any side damages could be... which makes pretty much any help I or anyone else could give you through text messages "peeing into the wind", so to speak (in laymans terms).

    Any words you don't understand, Google will be happy to help put them into context. Just try this for example, on Google: "wiki SRAM" or "wiki PCB"

    Sorry if what I am saying isn't a tonne of help. I learned with little to no instruction, and I have always been a firm believer, that "if I can do it, anyone can."
