Default button contact issues

Hey everybody.

I have this old Faderport that I didn't really use when I was using Pro Tools predominantly. Now, that I'm trying to make Reaper work for myself, I am reviving the Faderport again, only to find that some of the buttons have some connectivity issues and only react after very heavy pressure is applied. Do you guys think a simple contact cleaner might solve the problem?

(Luckily it's only on the transport buttons that I never use anyways, so if it won't work, it's not such a big deal. Wouldn't like a gradual progression to the other buttons though.)

The trick is getting the cleaner liquid into the switch contacts where it can do some good. Might involve some disassembly.
