Question How to fix a BOSS SD-1?

Hey I got a BOSS distortion pedal a little over a year ago, and I've sort of put off getting it fixed for a long time. It stopped turning on (checked and replaced battery) about six months ago, but I haven't really had a need for it so I never bothered sending in all the paperwork to get it repaired.
But now I'm wondering if there's any DIY instructions for maintenance for these things.
Or if there's anything else I should try?

EDIT: Okay well it just turned on. I guess it just needed some R&R...wtf
I'm new here. Hurt me plenty.

Guitars: Epiphone SG Special, Epiphone Les Paul Special, Epiphone AJ-100ce
Bass: Some kind of Fender P-bass knock-off
Amps: Fender Mustang I, [Some sort of] Crate, Peavey Microbass

it may be the connections from the battery lead to the PCB those will go bad in a lot of pedals try the AC adapter

The switch in my BD-2 is dodgy, with both a battery or power supply. Yours might be the same. I might try some contact cleaner in the switch when I lose patience with it.
