I have a Winbook 8080 that was given to me with the idea that if I could fix it then I could use it. The former owner explained that the power supply connector is loose to the point where even with jiggling you can't even get it to stay on, much less charge the battery. I bought some "wire glue" to try. (It's conductive adhesive you apply with a toothpick, which apparently can be used instead of soldering to some degree.) I don't expect the wire glue is the ideal solution, but it's worth a try... if I can get the cover off. I've had poor luck searching for documentation of how to open it - merely removing screws seems insufficient. Does anyone out there have better Google-fu than I, or perhaps even actual knowledge of what to do? Many thanks...
