Strange problem with Kurzweil KSP8 remote

I love my KSP8, and the remote is one of the best parts of using it.

BUT recently the rubber bottom on the KSP8 remote has started to 'shed', or disintegrate... It leaves gritty black powder in its wake, everywhere it goes.

Temporarily I've affixed a piece of cardboard over the decaying rubber - I assume it has dried out?

Any tips or suggestions for how to go about fixing this? Seal it with something? Or scrape the old rubber off entirely and replace with... something else?

I'm open to ideas but be warned - I'm a technical nitwit and the opposite of 'handy'.

Ok. I'm just seeing this. I have no solution, but I have the same problem. I keep my RSP8 on paper towels...

Weird... but at least it confirms it’s a known issue I guess. I actually tried contacting Kurzweil about it recently but received no reply. I’m trying to decide between scraping the old rubber off vs. using some sort of sealant or cover to keep it intact.

Fun.

Take off the old rubber (use lighter fluid or Isopropyl alcohol to remove the glue) and replace with something like what I use https://www.amazon.com/XCEL-Neoprene...7RZQFQ2P332GJZ

This is pretty common for certain kinds of rubber to start to disintegrate after a period of time. Best of luck!

I don't know if it's "known" but at least you know you're not alone in this hahah .

I've considered trying to rip that gunk off the bottom, but am afraid of doing more harm than good. I've got extra rubber feets all over the place here.
