Howdy! I bought a used GH3 les paul guitar for xbox360 (wireless) that's lasted me a good while.
The problem is that I didn't realize how rusty the springs were in the battery compartment. So, one day when I was changing out the batteries, one of the springs just popped out! And unfortunately, I couldn't find the spring as it rolled into another dimension on my carpet. So now, while the guitar's buttons and such all still function, I can't get it to power on.
I've tried shoving in a piece of aluminum foil between the battery and the remaining piece of metal in the compartment, but that didn't work.
I also tried doing the same with a metallic paperclip, but again, no luck. (Though I wonder if I just didn't put it in right...?)
Any ideas how to fix it? Or am I permanently screwed? (I'd rather do some diy fix before having to go hunting for another guitar considering their obscurity and value.)
Sorry. No cats in these photos.
