    Hi,

    Wondering if white spirit would be ok to clean the corrosion on the connectors?

    Thanks

    If the connectors are on the PCB and the water damaged corrosion is old then it's likely that cleaning them wont work anyway.

    What you need is flux to clean them. I'm pretty sure the white spirit will corrode the board

    Just to let you know bit of an update that I did use white spirit and had no problem with it. She worked like a dream. Turned on right away.
