Oh dust and dirt, why do you have to exist? To keep us clean? To make us cough? To make us think there’s something wrong with our electronics?
All of the above, I suppose.
Just a friendly reminder to open up your power amps/receivers/anything with vents that circulate air (or should circulate air) and clean them out regularly.
You can get a can of compressed air from the Shack or any electronics store, or if you’re serious, you should invest $50 in a DataVac electric duster.
If you’re having issues with your signal dropping out, the volume/gain pots probably could stand to be cleaned and excercised. DeOxit is great stuff…
No sound coming out when you plug your cartridge in to the tone arm on your turntable?
Only hearing one side?
Poor calibration in Serato/Traktor?
Don’t blow into the tone arms, please. The little bit of saliva does not help any humidity situation that may already exist.
Could be oxidation. This video is great… I don’t have and have never used a Dremel doing this but you get the idea…
