    if you put a bit of aluminum foil a that place and put the battery on it it works

    Take a ear stick with wool soack in isopropyl alcohol not much but only to make it wet and clean.
    However good result of cleaning oxidation can be achieved using gasoline, but with this you need to be careful to not touch the plastic cause it can affect it as thinner.

    If it is battery leakage the residue will be alkaline, so get a cotton bud - put some vinegar on it and rub it lightly dry it off & then use some contact cleaner on it.   I don't recommend petrol or any other solvent.

    i thought it was scrathed due to replacing the battery. however the first battery that came with the headset probably had a battery leakage because it died way earlier and looked a bit broken.
