    What is the best way of cleaning the sockets and plugs on the back of DVD players, amps and the plugs on cables?

    Is Kontak any good?

    Please help.

    (Sorry if in wrong thread - not sure where to post!)

    A little bit of IPA should be ok on the metal outsides of them, just make sure none gets inside. I would not clean the insides of them at all, too risky.

    Once a year I completely strip my Amp & DVD player down and clean the pcb’s & sockets with electrolube spray and foam cleaner from RS then rinse them it all off with a load of de-ionised water and then to dry every thing I use a combination of the oven (for pcb’s) and a hair dryer. Must admit first time I done it I Sh*t my self wondering if it would all work again, but it does and now I do it every year.
