your site asked for a different Email. I gave you the address that I use. Looks like you hooked me up with a urologist that probably would not be able to answer my aviation radio problem. Thanks

Hi Charles,

My name is***** will try my best to help you with your question.

The fix is to disassemble the unit and clean behind the affected buttons (and ideally all buttons) using electronic contact cleaner to remove any buildup of residue that is hindering the connection when you press the buttons.

You can attempt this repair yourself, or a local electronics repair shop can do it for you.

Kindly rate my service 5 stars at the top of your question page if my answer worked so I am rewarded for my time; tips appreciated :)
Otherwise please reply back if you need further assistance.
