    Default De-oxit for dummies

    So the HK Citation I got needed some cleaning. I cleaned the faceplate and knobs themselves today. I want to de-oxit where I can just so I know its super clean, and it cant hurt.

    But with that said I have know idea where I need to spray the De-Oxit.... So I took some pics to get some help from the folks here....

    Do I spray at the locations for the knobs at color one, or color two...





    I am 99% sure I cant spray the EQ knobs given the warning I found above them... but looking again it appears I might only be able to spray the mode, function and speaker knobs.....



    Do I spray the rear inputs at color one or color two

    If color # 1 is white, that's the ticket in both photo sets. That is what needs to be cleaned. You can also spray directly into the RCA outputs on the back as you indicated with the red arrows.
