    Battery corrosion

    I made the mistake of leaving batteries in the controller of my Xbox. I was away for a few weeks so it didn't get played on and the batteries have corroded inside making a mess of the connections.

    Is there a way to clean leak so that it doesn't keep corroding or is this going to be a new controller?

    some vinegar or lemon juice with cotton swabs will clean the mess out and kill the corrosion. Just make sure you dont get the swabs to wet while cleaning and dont poor the liquid on the controller.
