Author cleaning scratchy jacks?

I bought an older piece of gear that was in storage for the last few years. Works great, but the jacks are a little scratchy. Any way to clean older Roland jacks? MPU-101 to be specific. OR will they just clean themselves up as I keep using it?

It works great, just a little scratchiness and weak connection once in a while.

Should I just leave it alone before I break it?

Buy some Caig DeOxit.

Spray it on a spare 1/4" jack.

Then insert 'n' pull the jack in and out of it's female counterpart about 5-7 times.

Should cure most of your ills.

Do not spray Caig (or other lesser bullshit) directly into 1/4" jack holes. That's just dumb: d'oh!

Oh shit! I didn't realize I had a can at home. grin

I'll just use it for now, I think it's just a little oxidized from lack of use. the previous owner had the unit in storage and said he hadn't used it in a while, but everything should work.

Thanks gentlemen!
