Broken reset / power button slimline silver ps2
Broken reset / power button slimline silver ps2 –
hi all, while opening ps2 slimline silver i have broken off the power / reset button from the main printed circuit board that holds it and the ir reciever. does any1 know of a way of fixing this, i still have the button, but no matter where i place it i cant turn it on, or failing that, is there a way of turning it on/off by messing with the wires that plug into the pcb? any sort of way of turning it on (can turn off by plug) cos i got games that i havn`t even played.help is verrry apreciated and if it helps this is what i broke:
yeah , i know its bad, but i dont want to have to pay 35pounds for a new
reset / power button thingy. cheap bugger i am. lol
any chance you can soder it back.
umm yea solder it back on,dab some solder on to the pcb to make it easier
If the botton dont work any more or its borken, you can short out the 2 sides really quick, thats just like pressing the botton. but solder it back on if you can (very small i know lol)
failing that, go to maplins & buy a replacement microswitch, at worst you might have to trim the switch back to fit, (the switch is the same as used in a lot of alarm fobs)
if you just short it out it will be like holding the button in continuously and it will turn itself off again.

solder 2 wires one from either side where old switch was and run the wires to outside the case solder on new switch and ouila done.
may not look nice but it will work
just soldered one back on heres wat i did a the bottom of the switch you can just see where it used to be soldered dab some solder on them points .then use some blue tack to hold it in place then solder it back to the pads.
thanx evry 1 for the help with this, i had a go at soldering it on and i`ve caused more damage than ive solved, not only is the button not working, the red/green led does not even come on now. bloody typical, anyhow, i`m gonna buy another and return the broken 1. thanx for all the help ,
