Go get yourself some contact cleaner.  Spray all the switches and the small
interconnecting wire pins.  May can just pull them loose and stick them back

You probably have some corrosion from sitting around.  Humidity etc.   You
may also need to loosen any mounting screws on the PCB's and re-tighten
