Repairing my Alfano Pro Plus after a battery leaked inside it

I figured something was wrong when I put new energiser lithium batteries in my Pro Plus and it was saying low battery. So I took it apart and found that old batteries had leaked all over the circuit board which had fried some of the LEDs. I figured this had caused them to short, which was why I was getting low battery – the broken LEDs were drawing heaps of current. I removed 3 of the LEDs in question and yay it works again! saved me around $300 on a new lap timer. Still possibly screwed… need to try new batteries.
