Default Slider channel offsets (TARANIS X9D+ 2019)

I've not used the sliders on my TARANIS X9D+ 2019. But I now need them to adjust FBL values in real-time. Even though I've now calibrated them, every time I switch on the TX, I get a different non-zero value for the Centre detent.

Is this just a case of open the TX and "bung in" some contact cleaner on the affected pots or is there something more serious going on?

TIA,
Paolo

How far off zero is the reading? They can accidentally get moved pretty easily just by handling the transmitter.

Yes, so in testing, I was extra careful. The centre value can vary from 0.7 to 15, which is a bit more than an accidental "bump". The value seems to vary almost randomly on every power-up. That's why I suspect a carbon build-up.

Opened the TX up and found the pots are sealed. So no way to insert a contact cleaner.

Instead, I wiggled the sliders a LOT and things seemed to have settled down.
