Question about HP Pavilion a375c (A375CBEC6719) PC Desktop
It was working fine but we kept in on the floor so the kids would use thier foot to press the power button so it started sticking and you had to press more than once to get it on. Now it wont turn on at all. What part do I need? Is it the power button or supply? Is there anywhere I can get a diagram that labels all the parts on my machine?
This is the power switch, these are notorious for getting dinged due to the odd size.
OK, BAD NEWS FIRST... this is hp part number 5183-6263 (power switch and cable assembly) HP Parts (800-227-8164) has discontinued this part (even though it's a newer computer) The parts warehouse HP refers you to (Vance Baldwin Co. 1-800-432-8542) also no longer has any in stock.
GOOD NEWS: This is just a two wire momentary switch that can be purchased at radio shack for 4 or 5 dollars. You will not be able to find one to fit unless you pirate and old HP case.
First thing i would do is call all your local computer repair shops and ask about the part, they may have an HP case they are parting out.
If you can not find one there, i would buy the replacement switch at radio shack and have one of thier store guyz (usually very skilled) install it and mount it on one of the blank add-in card covers on the back of the computer.
wish i could be more help, spend an hour on phone with HP and eventually they have me the parts place , they were much more helpful and even spoke english. If you call a number i posted above , i recommend the baldwin one .
Hope This helps you ! Regards
