Excellent work KTMRICK. Nicely done.
Me too. If I have the time (trying to upgrade the audio system at the same time) I might try to snap some pics and update the thread as best I can. Figure at least I can take a pic of the important bits.Sorry to see the images from the OP have been deleted or moved.
Based on your recommendation I think I am going to switch to the D-series Deox it, which is more of a cleaner than a lube. Here's the marketing blurb from the company:I have not had to make this repair BUT my experience with cleaning many types of contact switches says to throughly clean the contacts, buff them shiny with steel wool or a very fine grit sand paper and ensure that the parts make good contact throughout their range of motion. But DO NOT use any lubricant. Lubricants only attract dirt, dust, etc and shorten the time between needed cleaningd.
Based on your recommendation I think I am going to switch to the D-series Deox it, which is more of a cleaner than a lube. Here's the marketing blurb from the company:
"DeoxIT ® D-Series is a fast-acting deoxidizing solution that cleans, preserves, lubricates and improves conductivity on metal connectors and contacts. Use as a general treatment for connectors, contacts and other metal surfaces. Use on non-critical metal surfaces with severe oxidation and corrosion on the metal surface. If there is a discoloration of the metal - it is severe. Use DeoxIT ® to dissolve the contamination. DeoxIT ® will also lubricate and protect the surface. For reference, DeoxIT ® has approximately 20% cleaning action. Improves Conductivity Deoxidizes, Cleans & Preserves Reduces Intermittent Connections Reduces Arcing & RFI Reduces Wear & Abrasion Temperature Range, -34oC to 200oC"
DeoxIT® D-Series - Contact Cleaner & Rejuvenator
Could all be for naught as I sort of expect to find the contacts is good shape. I believe the OP bent the contacts up a bit, perhaps giving it a better connection. Maybe this is all that's needed.
