Re: RJ45 connector




I second this. If the RJ-45 contacts need cleaning, it is best to use a q tip with DeOxit cleaner. The connector internals are potted, so you would have a very hard time getting the DeOxit through to any sensitive electronics.


Just turn off the CP4 first, and make sure it is dry before you turn it back on.

  • I was considering that, but wanted to be sure there were no possible issues with the spray possibly entering the CP4.


Alternative: Deoxit Gold is a liquid in a tube not spray, and you could use a q-tip to apply (that’s not saying there would be an issue with the spray, just an alternative).  I’ve used the tube for camera contacts for years, good stuff.
