    I want to Remove the battery from a Toshiba Satellite P50-A but the connector won't come out. I've tried pulling directly from the side and pressing down on the top and pulling out. How do I remove this?

    If your talking about the connector in the middle of the picture, the one with the rectangular white square that you would push on, you might try using a really small flat blade screw driver at each end and gently twist between the white plug and the black socket while pressing the white button down. Alternate between the right and left sides until it comes loose. There may be some corrosion inside where you can't see that is locking the plug to the socket. If that's the case you will have to figure out a way to clean the socket the best you can to remove as much of the blue green oxidation as you can inside the socket before you plug in the new battery. A baking Soda solution will help with dissolving the corrosion but getting it in there may be hard. As for the white button, from your pic it looks as though you will need to be pressing down on it nearest the center furthest from the wiring to release it, but I can't tell for sure.
