Where can I buy replacement pots?

Riccardo Flask - Yanıt

Great guide, thanks a lot for the effort. It turned out that one of the cables connecting the pot to the pcb had snapped. Just going to test now.....fingers crossed. :-)

Cheers. Andy M.

Hey did It work?

Levente Gergely -

I didn't even have to replace them. Only cleaning with electronic cleaning spray and move the pots fully was enough to fix it. However, and I think that was the real problem, one of the pots was damaged because the plastic pointer it has to be inplace in the assembly was broken. Only one half was in place. I used something here we call "type cleaner clay", some sort of clay not use to play but to fix things to the wall or clenaning old typewriters. Comonly blue. Other forums says damaged pots are not common, only dirty or may be, as mine broken. Easy to fix

Has anybody found a source for these pots? I'm guessing they're proprietary? Possibly some version of CTS 252 series? Anything they can be replaced with? I've worked on a couple of these where people opened up the shifter pots trying to clean them and damaged them, and I cannot for the life of me find any replacements and I've searched high and low through every joystick potentiometer source I could find.
