     I am an Amiga expert. If you don't remove the battery asap you are 
going to lose this system. I am amazed that it still works but that 
isn't going to last much longer. You stated that there was some 
corrosion that you cleaned up so it may already too late to save the 
motherboard. The acid from the battery will migrate along the copper 
traces and there is no way to stop it nor repair it. I would never buy 
this system.
GOD Bless and Thanks,
