I think if you’ve removed power completely and it still exhibits this problem using new AA batteries then it might be fried.
I can say from personal experience, that this actually is true, it NEVER switches off 100% completely and drains the batteries in the neutrino wand itself, which leads to some bad problems with the wand as when you want to switch it on and use it for a photo op, it turns straight off and you're stuck there without any batteries. I would have preferred it if Hasbro had actually put a rechargable battery pack in there (similar to how the Spengler Proton Pack wand loom has) and you can take it out and recharge it without it worrying about the batteries frying or dying over a small portion of time.
