Default C24 center faders going CRAZY

Faders 9-16 on our C24 console has decided to go berserk.

When playing with pro tools and writing automation they work fine, but once I let go of the faders the go extremely jittery (to the point where the faders fly off.)

We have tried a factory reset and fader tests in utility, this hasn't fixed it.

Can any one help? It's unusable in this state.

Thanks guys.

Default Re: C24 center faders going CRAZY

I had this problem with my C24 several years ago(which I purchased new). Had to send it in for repair. Recently now I have LED's going crazy and flashing, and the Avid Authorized repair shop did not come back with good news. In my case I'm told that apparently at least some C24 units had some inferior plastic connectors between the PCB's that eventually cause a chemical reaction and result in corrosion on the metal contacts. When I sent mine directly to Avid the first time, they did replace a connector on one board, as you can tell that the one solder job was not done by robot(I don't know what else they did). Even after a thorough cleaning and shiny clean contacts all done by the shop, my C24 still has the flashing LED issue. Audio passes and buttons and faders work, but I can't use it with it's current problems. Unless someone can point me to a fix that doesn't involve replacing PCB's, it's just going to be too expensive to repair. Plus there's the whole no-longer supported deadline. For such an expensive piece of equipment, it's all very disappointing. I take really good care of my gear too.
