I have a handheld radio with an LCD display. Due to time and climate, the rubber in the elastomeric connector seems to have gone hard and as a result the LCD shows the usual signs of failure, letters and symbols blinking off and disappearing, etc.
I've looked hard and long for a matching replacement, but the only elastomeric connectors I can find online are of a very few, very specific sizes, and of course none of them match.
Can I just buy a larger one and cut it down? If so, how do I best do this, just a very sharp knife or do I need something else? Or did I miss a source where I can get them in more sizes? I can't even find one in the right thickness.
