Problem solved. Thanks everybody. I moved the pad from the RC65 to the RC64R and it is working they way it used to again.

The oval cover was easy to pop off with a pen knife. The four screws and the two at the end of the battery compartment required a very small philips head screwdriver. A small flat-bladed screwdriver popped the back loose at the battery and then I needed to remove a screw holding the RC64R circuit board in. The RC65 didn't have this. I swapped the pads, re-assembled and tested. The RC64R was fine again.

Glad you got it solved. FWIW, simply cleaning the contacts on the board and on the membrane with an alcohol soaked q-tip every 5 years or so usually does the trick for me. If the contacts on the membrane a totally worn out, conductive paint will restore them.

Good advice. I will save that for future reference.
