I don't know if we have any Eton E1 or some Sony portables with the problem of a coating turning really sticky over time; these archived posts at SWLing.com suggests some solutions. It seems that the citrus based cleaners work real well to remove this mess off the radio without damaging the lettering...

Silicone oil is pretty good at dissolving glued labels with a couple of applications - it's called "CRC 808" here - perhaps it will work on your sticky coatings. Don't get it anywhere near switch contacts though, especially ones that arc - it makes a great insulator!
