    sticky panel and volume knob

    I just bought a boom of ebay to compliment my receivers and touch. The control panel and volume knob are sticky to the touch. I saw an earlier post with no solution to cleaning it, or, if it's a degradation of the material, so, I thought I would post again:

    1) does anyone know of a way to remove the sticky?
    2) Or, is it just the material degrading?
    3) Finally, the "rubber" on the top of the unit is fine, is this the same material? Or, is the panel something different?

    Thanks;
    Jim

    It's degregation unfortunately.

    I used isopropyl alcohol to clean it up - it seems to soften the material and you can then wipe it off with a cloth.
    I've had to do it twice as the problem comes back.

    Jay, I bought mine on the cheaper side because of a few rows of bad pixels. Even sticky with bad pixels it's a receiver with a nice amp and pair of speaker. I had planned on controlling mine with squeeze control, or one of my controllers, so no need to make funeral arrangements, right?!

    No, it's working perfectly, only cosmetic issues, will tenderly look after it well into it's elder life.
