The issue with not replacing stuff every time a new version comes out is that eventually entropy takes its toll and it needs mending. Sometimes, the manufacturer (as in last month’s post) makes it impossible to fix but other times…
Take our CD player remote control. Now put it back. Thank you. The batteries last so long in it that they tend to start leaking before they have actually stopped powering the device and that slight chemical spillage leads to corrosion of the battery connector. Then it does stop working by which time it is usually quite hard to clean the corrosion off.
Time to remove it completely…
Remember that old biro you removed the spring from way back in the noughties, and then left on a shelf? Well, that has finally proved to be useful as a new battery terminal.
And that is a quick ScrapHappy fix!
