How Do I Clean The Contacts On a P90 Predator's Red Dot?

Recommended Posts

I am buying a P90 predator (second hand) and the person says the red dot isn't working, he suggests that the contacts need cleaning, if they do, how do i clean them? Or if they don't, what could the problem be?

Thanks

Battery contacts?

 

Rub them with very fine abrasive paper 'emery' or 'wet and dry' about 1000 grit.

Or, use a 'fibreglass pen' they are designed for polishing metal surfaces before soldering. Gt them from a model shop. They are used by modellers working in etched brass or brass castings.

 

If you mean the switch contacts Maplin have switch cleaner.

You can get a sheet of 1000/1200 grit wet and dry or emery cloth from your local car parts shop for pennies.

 

Emery cloth is the same stuff as wet and dry but on a fabric backing, it is for polishing metal whereas wet and dry id for rubbing down paint and has paper backing.

For what you need get the wet and dry it's a lot cheaper and you will have enough to polish contacts for the rest of your life.
