Default EOTech 552 battery box repair options?

I bought an EOTech 552 back in 2006 and since 2010 I've had issues with it turning off when firing. I was told by my friend that the design of the AA batteries running in parallel to the barrel will cause the springs over the years to lose tension and make the batteries lose connection to the sight. That's what causes the Optic to turn off during shooting and why the new EOtechs rely on a battery turned 90 degrees from the barrel to mitigate recoil affecting the springs.

The thing turns off even if I slap the CCO as well so it must really be weak to withstand anymore shooting.

I have one of the new ones now, an XPS3-0, but I wanted to know if there is anything I can do to salvage my 552 like where to get new springs or a replacement battery housing. I hate to let a good red dot CCO go to waste.

Thanks in advance.
