    Install NVRAM in your TSPP. It is a plug in play, 30 second upgrade. Easy to change as a game ROM. http://www.pinitech.com/products/6264_nvram.php

    For the other games in your collection, if you're not wanting to do the soldering for NVRAM to remove the old RAM and install an IC socket, I could do the 3 for you, or upgrade to Lithium batteries that should not ever leak.

    Quoted from Soulrider911:

    What I would do is de solder the old battery holder and solder in your new remote one. You can do what others have mentioned as well, just depends on your skill and how comfortable
    You are with soldering, but I’m sure folks have an opinion on this method as well

    Unfortunately, you are too late. You have alkaline damage at minimum of what is in red. Yellow area is suspect.

    Quoted from Onwallst:

    Just install lithium AA batteries. All problems solved. Never leak and no corrosive gases.

    I say, just install NVRAM and never have to worry about throwing another single battery in the trash. Go green as they say.
    DE/Sega/Stern Whitestar boards already have the old RAM in a socket and anyone can change it who has changed a game ROM. True plug and play on those boards, 30 seconds and done.

    For NVRAM on System 11 and WPC, I can install remove the old RAM and solder in an IC socket and install the NVRAM in 20 minutes. I'm willing to do this for anyone wanting my help.

    Quoted from Soulrider911:

    Good eye pinballmaniac40 but I was not talking about the damage to that board at all, as this thread has nothing to do with that. So, though I thank you for your keen eye, that does not help this guy. FYI look now my friend...

    Yes, it is a good thread for it. Brings to the attention of what many people do not know what they are looking for when someone says to look for battery corrosion, much less the need to continuously change alkaline batteries or suffer their ill affects. It also shows the alternatives to batteries.

    That is a very nicely done repair, Sir. Well done! +1 for NVRAM that never forgets.
