    Hi forum,

    I am hoping someone can give me some advice on if it is possible to clean corossion from the MB of the galaxt tab 7. A friend of mine lives near the beach and the corossion has gotten in at the charging socket (hes only had it for about 3 months!).

    I have pulled the tab apart, checked and confirmed the battery is fine (it was not booting or charging)

    Then removed the MB and found a load of corossion. My question is, how can I clean this, if at all? What is the best product to use?

    Also, does anyone know if you can get little rubber plugs for the charging socket? One of those would be needed to prevent this occuring again.

    I am unsure how to attach an image, and not sure if this link will let you see the photo in my dropbox public folder but here it is:
