How do I get eroded battery juice off my camera?

Home More advice Computers & Tech

I left batteries in my kodak camera by accident and didn't use my camera for a while. The acid in the batteries oozed out of the batteries and got on the cover that holds the batteries in. It was all dry and crusty and i tried to scrape some off, but my camera still isn't working because the crusty stuff is blocking where the batteries touch the camera to get the camera power, i'm assuming.
How do I fix this?
