i have just been given a very compact digital camera that doesnt work, the story is it was submerged.. and its not submersible, the problem is its been left for ages and its innards have begun to rot, i have just opened it up and i find there are marks where the water has been and the circuit boards have aluminium and solder corrosion all over them, assuming the processors arent burnt out, how would i go about cleaning the boards?

Tooth brush and 90% Isopropyl alcohol. But I doubt that you’ll be able to make it work again, If you’re trying to revive the camera.
