Can't remove attached cable from motherboard....

Setting up my new Prusa MK3S+. 

Final cables attached to the motherboard and.... I plugged the heatbed thermistor into the power panic hole.  No big deal, right?  Well, they must not be the exact same connections because I can't remove it now.  It has the lever lock mechanism but pushing the little lever does nothing.  I don't want to force it more than I have at the risk of damaging the motherboard.  

Anyone know a trick to get these plugs out when they are finicky?  I'm so close to the finish line here.... Thanks in advance.

The bottom or lever can be problematic.  I have had to push mine with a pair of tweezers.

I decided to unplug everything to give me a better angle on the problematic plug.  However, a second one won't budge now.  There should be a trick to doing this.  I'll keep searching.  I've tried tweezing and everything else I can think of.
