I have a Bose headset Model OC2. I removed a dead AAA battery which was somewhat corroded on the positive terminal. I had not used the headset for 2 or 3 years. Replacing the battery does not get me power or sound. There is no visible damage to the battery compartment. The contacts seem to be ok, but how do I clean them just in case corrosion is the problem. If cleaning doesn't work, what then?

Re: No Sound/No Power
Hello, I see you have a set of headphones that are inoperative. You can take a peice of aluminum foil the heavy duty type and scrub the contacts to clean the terminals.If you have a figernail emery board that will work also. If that doesnt work you will either have a wire corroded into also and you will have to take apart, or either take to a local small radio repair shop and let them repair the wire.Thank you

First step check the battery and the connections , chevrolet has a common problem with the negative battery terminal getting corroded. Remove the negative terminal and inspect the metal lead in the cable , clean and repair as necessary, with the negative cable removed perform the same inspection on the positive cable. If issue still persists further troubleshooting will be required.
if the car will jump off doesn't matter what AAA said battery is bad, either terminals are excessively corroded, or battery has a dead cell internally, remove battery and take to a reputable auto parts store or repair shop and have tested, also have load tested it is bad.
My headphones (after several years) got to where they would go dead in about 1/2 hour. I used Panasonic AAA H8 Ni-MH 630 mAh. They last longer and get much louder than the stock batteries. I was able to remove the old batteries without breaking the holder. They work better than new.
hopefull your battery is just dead a new battery should fix that problem you can try charge the battery may be okay depending on how long it has sat without bein used.... otehrwise it mat be your starter solinoid it ts the block with 2 poles on it that your positive battery cable goes to, it will most likely be a dead battery tho...
When the igniters stop working the backs are corroded. Clean well and reinstall or replace altogether. In the meantime you can use long fireplace matches to light the burner until you are ready to effect repairs.
BATTERY INSTALLATION AND INFORMATION Your wireless headphone unit requires two rechargeable AAA batteries. Rechargeable batteries are uncharged when you purchase them. Before you can use the wireless headphones, the batteries must be charged for 16 hours. Follow these steps to install and charge the batteries. Installing the Rechargeable Batteries Take care to follow these steps to correctly install the batteries. 1. On the right headphone, locate the battery compartment (1). Use the finger depression on the compartment to turn the battery compartment cover counterclockwise to remove the cover. 2. Insert two AAA rechargeable batteries, carefully following the markings inside to ensure the batteries are inserted properly, with the + and - ends in the correct positions. 3. Replace the battery compartment cover. Charging the Rechargeable Batteries To recharge the headset unit, follow the directions below. Note: The cradle/transmitter on the WHP141 is not a recharging cradle, although you may place the headset in the cradle during recharging. Follow these steps to recharge the NiMH rechargeable batteries. 1. Make sure the ON/OFF switch (2), located on the right headphone, is in the OFF position. 2. Connect the AC/DC main power adapter to the DC IN power supply socket (11), located on the back of the cradle/transmitter. 3. Plug the adapter into an electrical outlet. 4. Connect the charging cable (10), located on the back of the cradle/transmitter to the recharging input (3), located on the right headphone. The headphones can either be placed in the cradle/transmitter or placed next to the unit. If the headphones are connected correctly, the charging LED indicator light on the cradle/transmitter (8) illuminate.
I used your site to research the problem further. I found an answer which recommended rubbing the suspect terminal lightly with a pencil eraser. It worked! I now have battery power and my headset works fine.
