Re: the battery conection to the board
The manual pretty clearly states not to replace the battery - the manufacturer usually has a way to fix any issue you are having with the player. Now that you have damaged the player yourself, your warranty is voided. sorry about your luck
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

Just repaired my Job Rocker !! Just like most everyone here mine worked fine but would not charge. This may be how to fix yours.
Follow the red wire up from the battery to the circuit board and carefully try to disconnect it from the circuit board. Odds are the male spade connector will come off the circuit board. That's because it never got hot enough for the solder to actually stick to it when it was assembled at the factory. With time, the expansion and contraction from the heating and cooling of the circuit board causes this poor connection and prevents electricity from getting to the battery.
Remove the male connector from the female part using plies (this was difficult and required wiggling the connectors back and forth while pulling hard - and I'm not sure if it is absolutely necessary ).Clean the two prongs on the male connector with some fine sandpaper or an emery board and put some solder flux on them. (If you are unsure how to solder watch a few videos on Youtube or get help from someone who can) Heat the prongs up with a soldering gun or iron and coat them with some solder. Carefully remove the circuit board (by removing 4 screws) from the plastic panel to which it is attached.Then insert the male connector back on the circuit board while heating up the solder on the back side causing the connector to properly solder to the board.
Carefully plug your female spade connector back on the male spade connector you just soldered on the board. After making sure the circuit boards are not touching each other, plug your unit into the power and see if the charging light and the other 3 LEDs light up. If they do, unplug from your power, reassemble, plug back in and enjoy. If the don't, check where the black wire from the battery attaches to the circuit board and repeat the same procedure. Good Luck !
Please post your results so we can all know if this is a common problem and a good fix! Thanks again!!
It can be 1 of 4 things. 1: the way your charging it. 2: the cable. 3: the battery. 4: the conection on your device. 1: Try charging it different ways. (Different wall outlet, laptop, computer, etc.) (Note: some laptops and/or computers might not have a strong enough charge to recharge certain devices. You'd have to adjust the power setting in the control panel or the manufacturers setings.) 2: Try using a different cable. (If you don't have one try wigleing both ends to see if you get a charge.) 3. Try another battery. (Most people overcharge batteries thus shortening the recharging capabilities.) 4. Check to see if any of the pins are messed up or missing on where you plug the wire into your device. (If any are missing you can open it up and replace the part.) Sometimes people end up pushing them in by accident when they conect there charger, so the wire doesn't make a good conection after a while (another case where wiggleing the wire could work).
Try a new USB cord and make sure your driver is updated. Try a different USB port on your PC as well. They can go bad. You may try to remove the battery for a minute and then reinstall the battery and see if that resets it and has any effect.
The battery can be changed only at Sony service centers, as per the manual. Please take it to a nearby Sony center to evaluate if you indeed need a battery change, and get them to do it right away.
Battery is bad. If you use a dock most of the time, it is overcharging or never gets the chance to relearn its capacity. If it just shows low battery but will still work, just run it with a low battery until it shuts off. Then recharge it completely. Do this three times. If no improvement, you need to replace the battery.
Have to completlydissaemble unit. Not hard but fiddley and tiny parts. Remove top custom color plate with fingernail. remove 2
phillips screws and set aside on nonslip surface (tissue). slide top plate with view screen away form usb connector 1/16 inch to unclip and lift off. Slide Metal belt clip left or towards usb port side (carful not to scratch ld viewscreen. and set aside. Remove 2 philips screws holding circut board and lcd (Set aside seperat from other screws as shorter and must go back samme place.
Fingernail out whit clip over usb port and set aside. Lift entire circutboard/lcd unit on left side (usb port) up and slde out that end so as not to catch volume control . Carful of battery leads.
(CAREFUL OF ROCKER SWITCH INSERTS ON EACH SIDE NOTE HOW SEATED AS THEY TEND TO FALL OUT BUT EASY TO REPOSITION IF YOU LOOK BEFOR THEY DO)
Raise far enough to get fingernails on battery terminal clip ON BOTTOM OF CIRCUT BOARD and pull straight off. ( note polarity as clip will fit back on either way but only 1 works and reverse polarity may damage unit. Wafer battery will pull right out of case and haspolarity +/- marked with numbers (assume model or part number)
DON'T DO IT! I was SO EXCITED to find this post 2 days after it went up. It addressed exactly the problem I'd been having with my YH-920 (getting maybe 30-40 minutes off a charge). I ordered from the suggested supplier (not cheap at today's exchange rate) and eagerly tore into the project Thanksgiving night. Disassembling the player is as easy as advertised, but the replacement battery simply DOES NOT FIT the machine. Batteryupgrade.com advertises it as a replacement for the YH-920, and the package is stickered with the same information, but it's between 1/16th and 1/8th inch too long for the battery bay. Trying to make it work destroyed my MP3 player ("device can't initialize HDD," a message I still get after reinstalling the original battery). Now I'm trying to get a refund. Wish me luck.
