i bought a wireless keyboard off craigslist, little did I know, it is a broken one. somehow, the battery terminal snapped off. I am trying to solder it back on, however, i am having a bit of an issue with the disassembly.

i followed the guide at iFixit.com Link. But i am stuck on step number 7. Doesn't matter how i poke at the battery terminal, it just refuses to come out. Any ideas on how to approach this?

Are you using much force? I'd almost try to put something soft at the end of the screwdriver and push hard. Thing is, I probably wouldn't even bother in the end. Did you tell the guy that sold it to you that it didn't work? I hope you didn't pay much for it.
