Re: need help with Funcube trouble shooting

I had been getting the disconnect and connect sounds from Windows frequently and because my 4-port USB extension hub is on the bench in front of me I bump or move the cables often and a disconnect would occur. I didn't have any TV tuner spray from years ago but do have a couple of the little bottles of a red contact cleaner that were supplied with every Bristol chart recorder we used for building systems at my work place back in the 1970's. Great stuff! I just dip a small screwdriver into the liquid and capture a couple drops to transfer to the connector contacts. Voila! No more ♪bleep-bloop♪ intermittencies.
Isopropyl alcohol would work temporarily to clean the contacts but contact cleaner leaves a film that helps prevent oxidation. Replacing the connector isn't too difficult if need be.
