Roland RX-100 Spring Reverb Problem...

I have a Roland RX-100 reverb box, it sounds great when working, but there is a problem I was hoping someone could help me with. Quite often when I turn it on, the signal comes out dry (no reverb, or very little), even when put to full. To fix this I have to lift the box and tap/bash it down a few times. This seems to bring the reverb back into action. Its intermittent though, so the next time I turn it on it will be back to the dry signal.

A royal pain, as I feel like I might damage the reverb if I keep bashing it to get the damn thing to work. I just can't figure out what could be the cause of the intermittence. A loose connection maybe?

Oxidized connector?

Open it up and see if there are socketed chips or any sort of connectors inside. Push down on chips to re-seat them, clean any connectors with DeOxit or similar contact cleaner. If this doesn't fix it, you will have to look for a bad solder joint.
