What can I do about dirty sliders? I've got a mixer with a crossfader that tends to crackle around the far left and right, and often when it's at either extreme it lets a bit of the wrong signal through. I can't really get at it to clean it, and I'm not quite sure what else I could do. Somebody suggested WD-40 but I'm not too sure about that.
Also, what about noisy rotary pots? they seem pretty much sealed off, but sometimes they seem to just get really noisy after a couple decades. Usually I just spin them back and forth till I get bored and that seems to help, but sometimes they just can't seem to be fixed that way, are they due to be replaced?
