Hi folks! I'm a x0xb0x section dweller but from time to time I break out of there:) I gotta hang out in these other sections more often. Every time I look in another direction there's great info to be found.
I have a situation where I have some old obsolete push buttons I need to restore. It's one of those arrangements where there's a rubber suction cup with a contact plate inside a sealed casing. When pushed it makes the connection to two metallic pins on a set of plates below. This engages the button.
The contact in this suction cup has worn out. At best the connection is intermittent. I'm trying to find a solution to recover the plate in that suction cup to restore its ability to connect and one possibility was painting or scribbling in some sort of conductive material. I suspect it's not a long term solution though. Can anyone enlighten me on what options exist? I haven't really found anything 'obvious'.
