Scratchy Choices

Post by rdomain » Wed Sep 18, 2013 1:09 am

Hiya,

It appears my Choices joystick is getting scratchy when moving the joystick. Is there any easy way to fix this? Really not enjoying it like this. :waah: It's usually a fave bit of kit for me. :tu:

Cheers!

A joystick is basically just a fancy potentiometer, right?
I've seen various people recommend using contact cleaner like you'd use in jacks on scratchy pots, wiggling the pot around a bit, and then just waiting for it to dry before powering things up again.
I'd try that.

Yeah, pretty much. 2 pots on an axis type device. I'll give that a shot. Cheers :guinness:
