Any idea what type of pcb header is on the board for the battery? I have a motherboard with a broken header but I cant source a replacement

This is where I screwed up so I recommend extra caution for other newbies. Only the black part is supposed to come off. Don't be an idiot like me and pry off too much...

  • Using the pointy end of the spudger, disconnect the three antenna cable connectors on top of the wireless card.

  • Deroute the antenna cables so that they are out of the wireless card casing. Rest the wires out of the way.

Step 9-11 only apply to the 3G version of the PS Vita.

Hello, I have the PCH-2001 model of the PS vita and the right analog stick went out. I ordered a replacement and the stick is slightly larger than the original. The original has a black rectangle on the back, the new version has the star version, which is what you have on this website as the replacement part. Any help here would be much appreciated. Thanks.

My screwdriver does not want to unscrew those. They won’t turn at all.

i am takig my vita apart (moving all boards/chips into new oled lcd screen/ front part) and am having trouble taking the wifi chip out in order to take out the right button board, the screw closest to the right button board is i think stripped, is there an easy and non harming way to the motherboard of taking that screw out?
