Question about JVC RV-B90 Boombox
Rubber is coming off on my hands whenever I touch them.Any solution?
I have removed all te rubbercoating by using a degrease liquid the they use normaly in the kitchen to clean the oven : It's perfect now .. a clean plastic surface ... just like new !!!
Be careful with other agresive cleaning products , otherwise you demage the plastic surface below the rubber coating .
Try it out it works perfect .
I hope your problem is solved now .
Excuse me for my incorect englisch ... i'm living in Belgium and my motherlanguage is dutch .

I fixed it perfect by buying some Motsenbocker's Lift Off Silicone Latex Caulk and Foam Sealent Remover from Home Depot and applying the gel with rubber gloves (also from Home Depot). Took off the sides of the boombox and knobs. Took about 30 mins in a stainless steel sink.
Then bought some Black Flat spray paint at Walmart and sprayed.
It looks perfect when all put back together.

I used 99% pure Isopropyl alcohol that I got at a local drugstore. It took lots of paper towels and Q-tips to clean off the rubber coating. It probably took about 30 minutes per end, as there are a few hard areas to reach. Once the rubber coating is removed it leaves you the greyish black plastic surface underneath. Now it is no longer sticky and does not get covered with dirt and dust. Also you no longer get a black residue on your hands when touching it. I am very happy with the results.

I also had this same problem. As recommended above, silicon caulk remover works marvelously to take off the sticky coating.
To be fair, cleaning does not take 3 hours of your own time. After a few minutes to apply the cleaner, you just let them sit around for 3 hours. (I even found that letting them sit overnight helped clean the large end handles thoroughly.)
