Scott 800B

Post by kdtbird on Fri Apr 18, 2008 3:10 pm

Ok guys, you want to see some action over here you have to post. My question for today is.....

Those darn silver contacts, how to clean them without breaking them and will any thing prevent them from tarnishing for the long haul? It's a big job to get the chassis out of the cabinet so I want to do that as infrequently as possible.

First, Wash in distilled water and 409 and rinse
(This removes grease and oil)

Second, dip in and brush with isopropyl Alcohol.
(This will remove Crud and water)

Third, Use silver dip or use vinegar and salt.
(This Will remove tarnish)

Fourth, rinse and brush again with distilled water and a brush.
(This will remove salt and silver residue so you don't get microscopic whiskers as this combination is electrically conductive)

Fifth, use Either Cramolin or DeOxit
(This will lubricate electrical contacts and prevent further tarnishing and also provide less wear on contacts)

Hope this is what you are needing. Like a Star @ heaven

Find an old can of DeOxit from about 8-10 years ago. Silver tarnish would literally drip off the contacts and they stayed well protected. The new stuff doesn't do squat.

Ex;
So glad to see you online again cheers .

I have a jukebox, that has silver contacts in the Tormat unit, The unit that stores and selects the records. If the Box sits unused for anymore than a week, the contacts get dust coated, and plays havoc on the selection process, to the point it plays more songs than selected or plays the wrong songs. Do you guys think the DeOxit would help in this instance confused . The Tormat is not easily removed, in fact should not be unless a failure occurs. I would be able to spray it, but that's about it.
