CUH-1001A with button battery corrosion

I purchase a CUH-1001a PS4 from eBay. I disassembled it and found that the button battery had exploded and started corroding the motherboard and metal shields.

I was wondering what the best way to clean the corrosion off the PCB and metal would be.

Louis Rossman says the only good way is with a $1000.00 ultra-sonic cleaner.

I can’t afford that. :slight_smile:

Any suggestions?


Other than a $1000 ultra sonic cleaner a toothbrush and some IPA is probably about as good as you can do.

Thanks for the reply.

My search of the internet was coming up with all sorts of crazy concoctions to use.

I was hoping alcohol would do it.

Thanks again.



There are probably lots of stuff that you can use but you usually can’t go wrong with IPA
