Title: Best way to clean exposed USB ports on digital players?
Post by: MakersMarc on April 22, 2019, 06:57:28 PM
I live in a dusty area, and also a lot of dog dander. Having intermittent issues with my pc when connecting the players. Happened a couple of times blew into the port and voila!

Any actual solution?

Thanks!

Use 1 & 2 to remove major gunk, then follow up with 1 & 3.  If you're cleaning a microUSB or USB-C port, the brushes are probably too big, in which case you could put a dab of DeOxit on the male connector and plug/unplug multiple times.
