Cheers for advice, doesnt look to bad does it? Don't know how bad they usually are. Can I clean the whole board using that?

It looks bad to me and I personally don't think it will be too long before the board decides not to boot or resets during play.

I repair all my boards the same way, good description on tackling corrosion is in my thread here...

Looks like you do a great job on your boards, how much do you charge for this service. I've only just got this machine and it plays fine.

Sorry I no longer repair any boards now, its very time consuming.

With your board (EPOCH) your just have to measure the tracks each side of the surface mounted components to make sure the tracks are good, its much more difficult with the likes of epoch as everything is so close together and board is much smaller meaning battery vapour damage goes far wider and can affect a lot more components. even the manufactures never designed the board to be able to be effectively repaired!

Thats a shame mate at least its working for now. I bought 5l of  isoproponol from ebay for quite cheap it smells a lot nicer than vinegar and goes further fibre pencils are fairly cheap too.
