"AA Battery Corrosion/Leakage..."


Bridge City, US
          

What's the best way to clean the corrosion from a battery that leaked inside an SB-28's battery compartment? Does anyone know of a sure-fire way of totally neutralizing the compartment once it's been fouled?

Thanks,

Go to Radio Shack and buy a can of tuner cleaner. Spray all over the inside. Now hold the flash so the battery door is on the bottom, so crud falls out, and scrub out the compartment with an old tooth brush. You can't get it all out. Now take a screwdriver and carefully scrape each contact down to the shiny metal. Try to keep the edge flat as you scrape, instead of making a crisscross of scratches. Spray it again and let it air out for an hour or so. It should work fine, but if you are worried about resale, you will never get rid of the evidence, so don't take a chance on ruining the unit by trying to take it all apart. And stop using Duracells--they're bad about leaking.

Let me re-word that question - What's the best way to clean corrosion from inside an SB-28's battery compartment? I had a AA alkaline that leaked while it was housed in the battery compartment. Does anyone know of a sure-fire way of totally neutralizing the compartment once it's been fouled?

Thanks guys. I didn't mean for it to look as if I didn't like your answer, Scott. I must've been retyping my question at the same time you were replying to it.

Thanks again,
