Default AMI R-82 problem

My juke has a slight problem.

When I hit the numbers on the keypad they do a double hit. As in...if I
hit, say the number 9, it actually records a 99. Trying to key in selection
134 will record a 113. But, if I hit it real fast it usually works right.

Any ideas?

Thank you,

Tom, you might have a hyper sensitive keyboard due to fact that it needs a
good cleaning and adjustment. These keys are spring loaded making it
possible for the contacts coming into contact with each other before the end
of 'normal' travel, normal travel being the key sticks all the way out at
you when at rest, then needing to be pushed firmly to make a selelction. Try
first cleaning then replacing or stretching these springs a little. Time
consuming but worth the effort.
Cheers, Steve

As Juke Dude so eloquently stated:

Thanks Steve. I was hoping it wasn't an electrical problem.

We have the same problem with the Rock-olas of that era.. Do not use
any contact cleaner sprays on them, the plastic will swell up. Also be
careful in handling the switces, they are no longer available and we
end up parting out good keybanks.

Thanks for the hint about the cleaners. What would you use instead?

Camden has cheap hookers?

Thanks,

Charlie, hookers???? For shame The recommended cleaning solution for such
problems, ink eraser...yup ink eraser. If the contacts are readily
accessible, try it and let us know.
P.S. Charlie....really??? Glad my wife doesn't read this. She'd never have
me alone at this computer ever again!
