    Does anyone know of a way to restore function to over worked keypads?
    This is one of those pads that have a thin plastic like membrane with a
    very narrow gap between contacts. I am not sure what material they use
    to seperate the contacts with, but half of the keys work and the others
    feel like their almost flattened out inside. Any help would be greatly
    appeciated! Thanks, Rob

    This one sounds different, more like the type used in many computer
    keyboards where there's two sheets of thin plastic with traces printed
    on them.

    they are carbon impregnated rubber buttons to make them
    conductive.
    mostly are dried, cracked and worped there by losing its
    ability to conduct any more.
    look for the applicable brush on product used for repairing heater
    elements on automobile windows.
