Yes, the two suggested solutions are either a light coating of nail varnish or some sellotape over the contacts.
I don't use mine in my cover very often, but haven't had any issues using the sellotape solution. In saying that, it was only the early non-lighted covers that had this issue, they were supposed to have done something to fix it, so I don't actually know whether mine would have been affected or not. I just used sellotape as a precaution as soon as I got the cover.
Thanks for the tip. I'm right out of nail varnish at the moment but a quick trip to my neighbour should fix that. I'll treat the top lug first because that is the one that has a tiny portion of exposed bright metal on its tip. It should be necessary to only treat one lug, I guess. I'll report back here with the result in a week or two.
(One caveat regarding Amazon refunds; they will only refund to your original credit or debit card and if, like me, your card has expired or been discontinued, as mine was, you have a few hoops to jump through to get the refund in your mitts.)
