Solution to Mate buttons not working

Postby drstrip on Mon Nov 13, 2017 8:51 am

For years the buttons on my Mate have been "fussy", to be generous about it. I'd tried all the usual solutions - contact cleaner, light abrasion on the circuit board, light abrasion on the membrane contacts. These had minimal effect at best. Finally I bought some conductive silver paint and dabbed it on the supposedly conductive rubber contacts on the membrane. After letting the paint dry overnight, I put the Mate back together and it works like new.
