Just What Is Uncle Lo Soldering With - CE IR Thermometer Repair

Greetings EEVBees:

--Just what in tarnation is Uncle Soldering with? Goats Milk. This (see pictures below) CE Infrared Thermometer was working fine when I put it away a few months ago. When I went to use it, this morning, the battery was kaput, and it still would not fire up even with a new battery. When I took it apart there was a whitish gunk all over the circuit board. Several good cleanings with rubbing alcohol and an old tooth brush, restored full functionality. It agrees fairly well with my Fluke 87 with K type thermocouple.

"Happy for you to desoldering, please."

Ah .., harbor freight quality.  I got one too ... It works fine but it sucks the life out of the battery , even when off ...

Shock:
I'd like some of that with my flux residue sugar and cornflakes

Time to turn on your variable power supply, set your multimeter and make some current measurements of the unit in standby !
