    Hi All,

    I have this Sony Digital Flash Voice Recorder (ICD-PX312). It requires 2 AAA batteries.

    Since I forgot to remove the batteries for few months and didn't use the recorder, I noticed later that acid leaked from batteries into the recorder and even after cleaning the battery compartment and replacing the batteries, the recorder doesn't work.

    How can I make it work? Any advise would help.

    Thanks,

    Yasar

    You will need to dissemble the unit to bare the board. If there's battery crud there, you can clean it with alcohol and a solvent brush.
    It might work and it might not work.

    Look for traces etched away. Usually, damage like this is unrecoverable.
