Hello all,

Hardware related.

For quite some time I had the volume knob fixed at one setting on the
M-Audio Studiophile speakers, using the headphone jack connected to a
pair of Sennheiser remote headphones with their own volume control
(plus any software volume controls). Recently when I tried to use the
M-Audio speakers w/o headphones I was surprised to find that the
volume knob has what I call 'rust' as it makes a loud noisy sound
when rotated. Is there any fix for this ? I kind of recall that
there was some kind of spray that was sold at Radio Shacks way back
then to remove the 'rust' off potentiometers. Anyone got the same
problem ? Are the speakers casings to be opened to spray such stuff
or can it find its way from the small spacing around the knob at the
front ? And is this stuff still around anyways and does it work at
all ?
