|DeoxIT & Zebras|

Would anyone recommend using DeoxIT Gold with the zebra contacts on LCDS?
I just fixed a nasty corrosion problem on a 42S and would like it to hold up.

Deoxit was designed for use on metal contacts. IMO, using the stuff on elastomeric materials would be a very bad idea.

Update from prior post
I concur on not using DeoxIT. I re-assembled without applying anything. SUCCESS!
It took a steady hand to repair about 5 traces. I hope the last.
