    What to use to clean an electrode comb / charge grid ?

    Hi,
    We have started experimenting with some drums that have came back with bad banding now with some effort they come back to life once the charge is cleaned but its finding the right stuff to clean them.

    Just curious what you guys have found works best to clean grids or charge combs ?

    Since both are so delicate some are almost impossible to clean without deforming or bending them. Is it possible to dip them in something ?

    Thanks for any help,
    Fishy

    Styrophome (sp?) works pretty good.

    Color is not 4 times harder... it's 65,000 times harder. They call it "TECH MODE" for a reason. I have manual's and firmware for ya, course... you are going to have to earn it.

    Dumb question but how would you use it >< ? You mean like a packing peanut right ?

    Would think that would bend the needles still.

    RRodgers is correct. Take a styrofoam cup & roll it along the saw tooth.

    Hope that helps !

    I've had pretty good luck with Glass cleaner on a Q-Tip for a Sharp sawtooth (scorotron).

    For the Sharp grids I have two toothbrushes. The first I spray with glass cleaner then gently brush in the same direction as the gridlines, while laid out on a couple layers of clean paper. Flip over, and do the same on the other side. Dab dry with clean paper. Lay out the grid on clean paper use the other toothbrush is to remove any remaining lint, both sides. Once you get the grid re-mounted you can brush away any tiny bits of remaining lint.

    It sound really fussy, but very very tiny bits of lint can give you quality issues on Sharp machines. The cleanliness of the grid is more important than the cleanliness of the sawtooth. =^..^=

    If you'd like a serious answer to your request:
    1) demonstrate that you've read the manual
    2) demonstrate that you made some attempt to fix it.
    3) if you're going to ask about jams include the jam code.
    4) if you're going to ask about an error code include the error code.

    Would this stuff do the trick ?

    CAIG DEOXIT CONTACT CLEANER

    Let it soak for a few mins sounds like the perfect solution...

    Cheers,

    I've never tried it, but it looks like it's suitable. It's ozone buildup on the grid that your trying to clean up. You'll still need some kind of brush to address the lint. =^..^=

    I ended up scrubbing the crap out of mine with glass cleaner and scrubbing brush like strokes one way. Then washing it off with alcohol, was well impressed with the results .

    I z-fold a clean piece of paper, spray iso into the crease and pull the grid though when clenched between fingers. This may take 2-3 times to clean, and once more to dry. With the iso and clean paper, I've had no problems with lint. Most any thing else sprayed onto the paper causes it disintegrate, and you will have to replace the grid.
