I have a problem with my "mute" and "emergency" buttons in that when I depress them...they stay in and I have a dickens of a time getting them back out as they seem to stick. I assume this is from lack of use and being "mechanically challenged" I thought I had best ask those that have gone before. I don't want to damage them but would like to have the use of them...any suggestions...thanks...:watching::watching:

A lot of those switches are self cleaning so by pushing them on & off they will start working better. Other option is to sprat with some electrical contact cleaner & see if that helps.

lots of threads on this in the forum. suggest opening up the housing(s) then spray the cleaner directly into the switch mechanics. on many of the switches the part you need to get the cleaner into is NOT near the button itself.

Not graphite as it's a conductor and can short out the switches.

> Ditto that, Opening the switch housing is easy (just 2 screws) and nothing will fall apart from that act... You'll also be able to get a direct blast of electronics cleaner on the guts of the switch.

> The problem is that the switches come packed with grease that dries out after a few years... Your mission is the Flush out that grease.
