Clean the switches!

Remove the switches. CAREFULLY open them up by removing the rocker using an X-acto knife or similiar thin blade. Inside you will find a small metal V-shaped contact- remove with tweezers.
Clean the contacts, four ecah rocker, and any other 'mung' down in there. Then clean the plastic casing with alcohol or orange clean. Very gently re- spring the contacts-just a LITTLE. REassemble, and that switch will be good as new!
