Fixing corrosion on 5600HS battery door
May 7, 2012

Hi there!

I purchased a used 5600HS with corrosion on the battery door that has gotten worse over time:

Now the flash won't recognize the battery unless I scratch off the corrosion w/ a thumbnail.

Any ideas on how to fix it, or how to replace the entire metal piece? I have no idea where I could get replacement parts for something this old, but it seems easy enough to fix.

Thanks in advance!

Eric
