    Hi all

    One of my channel select buttons (number 5, since you ask) is a bit unresponsive.

    I'm not remotely any good with soldering etc (if a switch needs replacing) but can manage to spray some switch cleaner on there if it's accessible.

    Is it wise to open the unit up - any tips or do's and don'ts about this?

    Thanks

    Stew

    Thanks! Got some Deoxit D5, after another brand of switch cleaner made not a huge difference. I now have a 97% functional switch.
    Well worth the £25 outlay... I have a couple of other bits of kit hanging around that may benefit too.
