      Cleaning ROM legs

      I have had a very troublesome game board with The CPU check saying ROM is bad.
      After a light sand ther good as gold.then the next ROM will show as bad.
      Is there any liquid cleaner I sit the ROM legs into instead of useing sandpaper?

      I don’t know if this will help but I have used good quality Machined Pin IC Sockets that are a really tight fit and used them as a permanent sandwich (round pined and round hole type).
      Socket in a socket, the round pin into a slotted socket makes a really tight connection.
      Lazy hack for a few dollars.

      I have a set of that socket type. Cant go wrong with them.
      But in this case its Moral Kombat 2 board set with well over 22 ROM's
      Just the ROM legs need cleaning the seats are good as.
      As noted above the glass fibre pen looks to be the go.
      Really dont wont to be replacing those seat unless it's needed.
