Are batteries responsible for my wii fit board not been recognized by wii?

My wii fit board is not recognized by wii. What could be wrong? It has been at least a year since last usage. Batteries were corroding and I cleaned this as best as I could. Although wii fit board does turn on but it is not been recognized by wii. I have tried the in sync buttons on the system and the wii board. I have even tried resetting the game multiple times. I am not electronically smart and unsure what else to do. Are batteries responsible for my wii fit board not been recognized by wii? Please advice appropriately. Thanks.
