Key Fob Issues

I have a 2007 Pontiac G6 and recently my fob has stopped working. It slowly started having issues recognizing button presses until finally it stopped completely. Now I did my own research into this and I know about the issues it has and how to solder the battery connector back on or about the button insert I can buy.

However, mine doesn't look disconnected. It's on there pretty solid. I also cleaned off the back of where the buttons are and still nothing. Certain areas on my board look kind of..burned? maybe. So that could be my issue. I don't want to spend money on a soldering iron or an insert if it can be helped. I've attached some pictures of my fob, I think it might be beyond repair. I got this car second hand and it was already heavily used. Any help is much appreciated.

As you can see in the pictures, it looks like a sort of..substance is all over and some areas look burnt, like where the battery goes.

Your key fob is already 10 years old and you are lucky to have no issues until now. You are already aware that it is very common to have those problems with the battery connector and button contacts. Get those fixed first regardless and if the problem still persist then try something else. Why ignore the known issues and try to look for something that rarely happens?

Definitely looks burnt, which provide means it's dead. Also lols like might have some corrosion or rust. Had it been exposed to a lot of moisture?
