Unhappy ZVM Broken Battery Connector - Special solder?


I have a 60GB ZVM successfully modded with a 64GB CF card. It has been working fine for a year or more until the other day when it simply stopped working.

I opened it up and discovered that the three inner pins of the battery connector have all come adrift. But do you think I can tack them back on again?! They just won't take. I am a technician with many years of experience in soldering circuit boards, etc. I'm using a fine iron and fine resin-core solder but no go.

What I'm wondering is - has anyone else has tried doing this or soldered other parts of the motherboard? Is it silver solder perhaps?

It's very frustrating looking at a now very expensive player (ZVM60 + 64GB CF) player which may now be just a brick if I can't fix it.

Any suggestions would be most welcome.
