A good source for conductive paint can be found at these 2 sites.
www.action-electronics.com and www.trainaidsa.com
great for repairing cracks and voids in ribbon cables.
good luck with your sc9,  tony

What is the defect? If it is some bad LEDs, those can easily be replaced, or usually re-soldering the LED terminals is all that is required. I believe you can test all LEDs by pressing A1 immediately after a full reset.

If it is the pressure switches on the squares not registering, sometimes the ribbon cable works loose from the motherboard, and can be pushed in to fix the problem.

In the worst case, I have seen the ribbon cable's conductive paint wear through due to contact with the sharp edge where the cable passes through the playing surface.

I always reinforce that ribbon cable with clear packing tape, which also serves to prevent it from rubbing off against any sharp edges.

I have heard some places sell conductive paint, so it might be possible to re-paint any rubbed through areas.

If a square is stuck on, try playing with non-magnetic pieces. As these boards age, the pressure sensory surface stretches slightly, the magnets in the original pieces are too strong, and eventually cause the square to be registered as stuck on when the piece is simply resting on the square.

I have a USCF SE which is similar to the SU9 and it works fine with non-magnetic pieces, but with the original pieces, some squares act like they are stuck on.
