    1. Remove battery.
    2. Soak Overnight in 90% alcohol.
    3. Remove from alcohol and dry it.
    4. Leave it on the rear of the CRT/TV screen (Which is on) to heat up the remaining liquids for 24-48hrs.
    5. Stick battery in and hope it switches on.
    6. Repeat 1 -5 if it fails.
    7. Throw it into the bin once you get fed up.
