Lightbulb Sticky Sena Cardo Intercom Units..

After many years of use, our Sena Cardo bluetooth intercom units became very sticky, especially along the upper/top regions. This apparently is a common problem with older Sena units.

It is due to degradation of the waterproof film that is applied to the units.

Some have reported success by coating the sticky areas with talcum powder and others by cleaning with Goo Gone. It is reported that the talcum powder will discolor the units.

We did the following:

The units were completely covered with baking soda in a ziplock bag for about a week.

The baking soda was then removed by rinsing with plain water and gently wiping with a dry towel.

The stickiness was nearly completely removed from one unit but the other still had a lot.

The procedure was repeated on the latter with better results.

There was still slight stickiness after the water dried on both units.

A drop or two of Gunk liquid spray silicone lubricant was then applied to both and rubbed over the outer surfaces, which completely eliminated the stickiness.

Try at your own risk.
