Re: Michael PL-380 earphone jack


You will find that products by Tech-Spray and their Rid-Ox line's Contact Protector/Enhancer are as well thought of as Caig's products, and they have worked very well for years.

Beware of over-spray, and clean up any, just as you would if using Caig's.

We have found that these two brands, a little goes a long way, and they can be used interchangeably if you really have to, although we all prefer sticking to all one side, so to speak.

Useful tip, Gary. But does anybody know of an
equivalent to Caig De-Oxit right of The Pond ???

I have used Servisol Super 10 switch-cleaning lubricant,
but am not sure of its credentials...

Hi Michael, Joe, Mike and Jerry,

A professional technician tip to clear up these intermittent earphone jacks is to spray Caig De-Oxit
on the earphone cord plug tip, plug it in to the jack, and rotate it around a few times. Repeat this
procedure until all intermittent problems are cleared up, then wipe the earphone plug tip dry with a
clean cloth, and re-insert the plug into the earphone jack a few times, continuing to dry the plug
as necessary until the plug comes out of the socket in a relatively dry state. This procedure
corrects the intermittent problem in about 99% of cases.
