Why would the RCX handbox keys require so much hard pressing to get the keys to make contact? It wasn't like this when I first got it. It got worse with time.
So I took it apart and cleaned the contacts with high quality electronic PCB cleaner that deoxidises printed circuit boards. It made no difference, and the stuff is good, I'm surprised.
What else can be done other than send it to Meade for a long-protracted "not our fault" sort of thing?
Regards,
Steve
