Model : Mark 2
Customers Fault Description : Remote Control not linking to Arcam Solo, Presumed to be a power problem.

Battery terminal cleaned gently as far as possible with Switch cleaner and cotton bud.
Remote Fixer Repair Response (see below) :
This Arcam remote arrived safely and on testing was confirmed dead. On opening the battery terminal was badly contaminated from the battery leak (see images).
Also there was a very large pool of contaminant all over the button array and PCB. The pcb was cleared of all contaminant using alcohol and the terminal was cleaned and re-palated. This restored full functionality.
Please note it is highly advised never to spray any cleaner inside a control as this can destroy items beyond repair.
