Corroded headphone jack

I used some cheap headphones in our 802 and the pin corroded and damaged the contacts inside the radio. I know about pencil erasers but they are way to big, anything else? I can't see spraying anything in there.

Roll a tiny cylinder of very fine sandpaper, maybe 600 grit, using a toothpick as a mandrel, and work it in and out and spin it. Hold it vertically so loosened particles will tend to fall out. Use the toothpick to apply a film of grease to inhibit further corrosion. Maybe spray a whisper of contact cleaner.

Don't know the size jack your dealing with but in the audio/video industry
We used "Jackfield Burnishers"
To keep thousands of patch points noise free. I'd try a Google search.
If you can't find the size you need
Buy a few bare plugs and insert
And twist a few times. New plugs are not smoothed by use and are somewhat abrasive.
Cheers

[QUOTE=GordMay;1983884]Q-tips/pipe cleaners and Deoxit?


Today I found some tapered pipe cleaners with bristles no less. Between the burnishing tool and a pipe cleaner with some solvent, I should be good again.
