Go to Radioshack and buy DEOXIT.. its made to clean oxidation (corrosion) and is electronic safe. If the corrosion (oxidation) didnt leak into the circuit board this will allow you to get proper contact again

Brand new batteries, but display on YKR-F/06 remote only now and then shows anything, which disappears soon as any button is pressed.

Most problems like this are poor power supply. First thing to do is try another new set of batteries, you would not be the first person to get faulty batteries out of a packet. (do you have a multi meter to test them?)

Are the battery terminals clean and corrosion free, this is often a problem when batteries have leaked in the remote. In some cases I have seen leaked batteries corrode the device's terminal badly enough the terminals need to be re-manufactured.

Check the terminal are reaching the battery surfaces with a bit of tension on them. Some batteries have flatter terminals so the device's contacts don't reach them solidly. You may be able to use tweezers or similar to stretch the device's terminals.

If both of these steps check out it is possible your device has a broken/cracked solder joint securing the device's terminals to its circuit board. You may need someone to disassemble & repair the remote.

Battery leakage

tricky, I would suggest a cotton bud (Q tip) dipped in a mild soapy solution, and squeeze the excess water out to leave them damp, then gently wipe around the battery compartment. If any water should happen to get inside the compartment, dry with a dry bud, either way leave until completely dry, a few days somewhere warm. Battery leakage, if left can corrode the terminals. If your terminals are not rusty they should clean up fine. Try that

Battery acid damage on canon speed light 430ex

You'd have to open up the flash (I don't recommend) and replace it by soldiering a new one in place. If you can't make you're own contact or salvage/fit one from another source you must send it in for repair.

My D100 have not been used for 3 years and now there is no live signs,even whit full baterry

For a camera to sit for this length of time will require cleaning the battery contacts within the camera. Check to make sure the battery terminals are not corroded or the battery is leaking in any way The terminals in the camera may be cleaned using a good soft red rubber eraser on the end of a pencil. You can use a puffer to remove any rubber dust make sure these are shinny if corrosion is evident then a more aggressive approach needs to be made. if you don't feel comfortable doing this service/repair I would suggest taking the camera to a repair depot. however if you have a few items around home like the pencil you may be able to affix a small piece of sand paper to the pencil and clean the terminals gently. All this is only if the terminals are corroded (not shinny).

Going back to the battery, check make sure the battery is not leaking and after sitting for that long I'd suggest putting it back on the charger again and let is sit for about 20 minutes then take it out of the charger for 10 minutes and back in again this should give it the kick it needs to start the charge cycle.

I think what has happened the first time you charged the battery the charger couldn't "see" anything (absolute no power) and just went into standby mode. If the battery fails to take the charge you will have to purchase another battery. Once you have power the camera should work as it did before.

For 2006 MDX we had a complete service at the end of Jan. The battery just died yesterday. It had significant build up on the positive post and the service dept. said that the battery leaked which caused...

In a perfect world, but the world is not perfect. Just clean the terminals and spray the terminals with anticorrosion. Remove the green and red foam if you have them. They just hold moisture.

My remote wont work

Make sure there isn't corrosion on the battery terminals. Try cleaning the battery terminals. Batteries left for a long time in one device will leak and corrode the terminals so even with new batteries the remote might not work. New batteries usually help too LOL !! Good Luck!
