This one is for g_schwab817.  I will be doing a couple for this ebayer!  Can't wait to finish up.

This unit is fairly clean, but it does show evidence of a large battery leak.  I will have to clean up the battery cover and some of the battery contacts.  There may be some hidden damage too.

Awesome, the battery acid never made it inside the system.  We see signs of corrosion from the caps as expected.  But that's why I am here working on it... so we'll get this taken care of shortly.

Awesome, it works, now to replace cap on button board and clean up all the acid from the battery door.  Then time to prep for the region mod!!
