Yes, Google Zen Parts or Zen Repair for some sites that may help and as coachop94 suggests, eBay.

From what I have read the white wire is used in charging. For detection - to see if it needs charging or not.

On second thoughts I am most likely WRONG so it's probably not much help. Sorry

Red Wire = Positive
Black Wire = Negative
White Wire = VSense

The VSense white wire is used for voltage sensing\monitoring voltage levels for actions like charging.

How about directly to the pin? I would make sure to use some flux and a low power soldering iron with a very fine tip.

Does your ZVM mainboard have the pins for plugging in the battery connector (next to the solder tabs) or was it already soldered directly to the mainboard to the solder tabs?

Sounds like your ZVM came with the battery soldered to the mainboard and not one with the pins/port for a battery connector, correct?

it came with the connector, however it broke off, which led to me soldering the wires directly to the motherboard via the tabs.

Oh ok, so no pins or tabs....ouch. There is nothing where the pad was that the solder could stick to or the trace? Maybe use some flux.

i guess it might be a problem that i dont no what flux is .. sounds familiar, but ive never used it.. ive been looking on the backside of the motherboard for anything that would look like i could solder the white wire to.

Flux:

Quote:
In high-temperature metal joining processes (welding, brazing and soldering), the primary purpose of flux is to prevent oxidation of the base and filler materials. Tin-lead solder, for example, attaches very well to copper, but poorly to the various oxides of copper, which form quickly at soldering temperatures. Flux is a substance which is nearly inert at room temperature, but which becomes strongly reducing at elevated temperatures, preventing the formation of metal oxides. Secondarily, flux acts as a wetting agent in the soldering process, reducing the surface tension of the molten solder and causing it to better wet out the parts to be joined.
See this post of mine for more info.
