Organfairy rescued an ailing Casio SA-10 with corroded battery contacts -

I got this little CASIO SA-10 from a jumble sale. It cost me a massive 10 dkr – the equivalent of 2$.
Unfortunately there was no sound but it turned out to be just some old batteries that had leaked all over the place. This video shows the restoring process where I first take it apart. Then I wash the plastic parts and clean the contact pads. And finally I put it together again and test if it works.

Another good reason for keeping an old toothbrush at the workbench! [via Synthtopia]
