I also have the same problem...
You can try to clean the pots,
reseat the ribbon cables
purchase the complete board from mackie part # 2037850-00
or the individual pots (if available) from mackie part #2038330
or try this not yet confirmed pot from ALPS RK09D117000C that is made specificaly for sound boards, but may involve cutting the shaft as it is 30mm and the mackie one is 25mm,and /or other modifications

I also have this gain knob scratchy noise problem on several pots

i am wondering if anyone has procured better 9mm  10k audiotapes pots. I know bourne’s makes an excellent  series , designed specifically for this application.

these are supposed to be sealed so i doubt cleaning fluid will do any good.
