  • Cleaning a navitrack

    Hey Everybody, I recently acquired a navitrack. It's in perfect working order, but it has some spray paint on the screen. Does anyone know what would be safe to use to clean off the paint and not burn the plastic screen?

    1st let me say i am no expert, yet . but i am assuming the screen is a plastic material and not glass. any solvent, that i know of, will attack the plastic.

    how did the paint get there?

    a new unit that came that way? customer support and a warranty issue would be my guess.

    a used unit? previous owner somehow got paint on the display? probably a return for servicing. replacement of the paint damaged item.

    hopefully some of the "experts" will step up and we both can learn.

      i got it

      it was used, 45 minutes worth on the clock. Our office lost it in our shop under a set of stairs with some retired camera equipment. The thing looks brand new except for the paint. I can only assume that someone put a can of paint in the case and when it closed somehow the tip got pressed. I also got the paint off using some carb cleaner.

          i tried it on a small area first, but no it did pretty good. I'm used to a much simpler locator Radiodetection RD 4000Rx, so having a little smudge on the screen won't make you miss much. With this busy screen on the navitrack every bit needs to be visible. Any tips for someone used to using the usual locating equipment with manual gain to going to this higher tech navitrack?

            Cleaning the NaviTrack

            Hi Theron:

            The safest way to clean the plastic is with isopropyl alcohol. Solvents and abrasive materials can damage the plastic.

            As far as a manual I assume this is a NaviTrack 1 that you have. We may need to send this to you so your best bet is to call the customer service line at 1 800 519 3456. If it is a NaviTrack 2 you can dowload this off the Ridgid site. Just see the NaviTrack page and click the Icon on the bottom or go to www.navitrack.com

            Regards,

            TCY
