Crumar Bit 01 Stuck Buttons

Post by thvmos » Tue Jun 15, 2021 3:36 am

Hey all, just snagged a Crumar Bit 01 recently (for free :D) thankfully it still seems to work perfectly fine though some of the buttons get stuck when I press them and stay pressed in/some of the them are unusable because of this. They seem kinda crusty.

Has anyone had experience with this with I guess just buttons on a synth in general?

Would using a cue tip with some isopropyl around the edges of the buttons maybe help to break them up or spraying contact cleaner in there? Should I try disassembling and seeing if anything looks obvious inside as to why they might be sticking? Would love for the buttons to be able to work, but also would love for it to keep working as some of the sounds are lovely on it.

Thanks!
