I've had the Litepanels MiniPlus for a couple of years now. It's a great little light but I have one small problem with the output control knob on the side of the light. It seems to have some connection issues and doesn't go from 0 to 100 evenly but raher in steps.

Sometimes the light doesn't give its maximum power out unless I use gaffer tape to hold the output knob in place (and push it a little inside the light).

My colleagues have had this same kind of a problem and I'm sure some users on this forum have propably experienced it as well. I was wondering if there is a good "fix-it-yourself" solution to get the knob working as it is supposed to.

Should I use CRC or some other anti-oxidation spray? I wouldn't want to bother the repair service for such a minor problem if I can fix it myself.


Any help is appreciated!
