    The solo button on fader 17 is not working reliably.
    I've tried injecting contact cleaner and various other 'top of the board' remedies, but the results have been iffy.
    It works for a while and then becomes unresponsive.
    Do I need to replace it?
    How would I do that?
    Advice please.
    Thanks!

    I had a couple of buttons that were not always responding. I opened the desk so I could spray in the button themselves. Have you tried that? The plastic cap is completely covering the tiny button underneath, so spray can't reach it from the top.
