Rear Interlock switch for playstation 2 slim needed

Hi, I'm looking for an interlock switch for a playstation 2 slim. To my understanding there are two switches, one located at the front right and one located to the left rear of the laser deck. I need the one located at the rear. Where can I this device? Or are there some pins that I can short to get the same effect. The button on top of the switch is broken off/missing. If you have a replacement part that would be great or any info that you may have will be helpful also. Thanks in advance for your support. Sharma

Sldulin, we are having the same problem. Our PS2 the little rubber black piece is unglued and mom
saw a sandwich bag on our glass end table and through it away, not knowing that the broken off switch was inside. So now we have to find a little rubber pad to glue back on the board so it will work. So if you know where we can get one send to our E-mail that info.

What is the de error message

Hi Prasanthi.
On front load machines, some manufacturers us de as 'door error'. This generally relates to a fault with the interlock mechanism.
This is the door lock which prevents the door from being opened while the machine is working..
If the door won't lock and/or the machine won't run. OR the door is locked shut, then this is the most likely situation.
The interlock switch is part of the electrical circuit.
NOT recommended for a handyman.
It's not a big job for a technician, and you will probably need a new interlock.
Good luck.

I have a 2004 F150 supercrew 4x4 and it will not shift into park and when I start it I have to put it into neutral any help Thanks

Sounds like the shift interlock circuit has an issue.

This can be 1 of 3 places

1. The fuse for the Shift Interlock circuit. This is fuse #16

2. The shift interlock switch. This is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) Switch that also controls the brake lamps. There are 2 switches in the BPP switch, 1 for the shift interlock, the other the brakes. The circuit in the BPP switch for the shift interlock is the Tan w/ Red stripe wire ( from fuse # 16 ) to Pink w/ Light Green stripe ( to the shift interlock solenoid ).
Test both side of this circuit with a meter ( to ground ) you should have power on the Tan w/ Red stripe wire any time the key is in the Start or Run position.
The Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire should have power any time the brake pedal is pressed down.
If you do not have power at the Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power with the brake pedal pressed on this wire, you need a new Shift Interlock Solenoid.

GE JVM1440 doesn't work, appears to be the primary interlock

I would refer you back to my solution here. It has links for ordering parts, and it talks about securing your door switch to its mount, etc. You may need to realign things, too.

We have the service / repair manual for this model and have uploaded it to our site here to help you.

It will give you safety info, step by step help in disassembly, troubleshooting tips, and part numbers.

You will need the
free Acrobat Reader to view or print it in case you don't have it already.

You can usually find helpful exploded view diagrams and order parts by entering your full model number from the tag on the oven here.

We're happy to help you with free advice and we'd appreciate your thoughtful rating of our answer.

hi billy

the most likely cause is probably the interlock switch has gained some play through wear an tear replacing it may solve it but first check that the door hinge hasnt been put out of alignment by the door being pushed open futher than needed. fitting a new interlock switch is relatively easy on most models might have it

hope this helps

Safety Interlock "Switch"

This is not the safety interlock switch. This flat bar keeps shredder paper from backfilling into the cutters. The safety interlock switch is a vertical slot on the body that a tab on the top fits into.

Disc won't spin. Disc doesn't show up in browser

You got a problem with the lasers data getting back to the Motherboard.
One of these could be your problem

  1. Laser lens is melted. Look at the lens with a magnifying glass to see if it or its supporting frame is melted. REplace the laser in this case.
  2. The ribbon Cable going from the Laser to the motherboard is damaged or loose.
  3. Your laser is burned out. Press the two interlock to override the door being open, to see if the laser even lights up. 2 switches, one at rear left corner, one behind the On/reset switch.
  4. Your Laser is dirty and needs cleaning look at it with a magnifying Glass to make sure you got it clean. Use Q-tip and window glass cleaner, not alcohol.
