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.

Where is clutch safety switch?

It should be located under the driver's side of dash and mounted to the firewall. Look under the dash and push the clutch pedal down all the way using your right hand to see the lever contact the plastic rectangular switch .You should be able to see 2 wires that plug onto the switch too.

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 cannot connect to wireless, it's always telling me to turn on the switch located on the front or side of the computer which i do not understand and cannot find.

Although many laptops have a wireless switch on the front bevel, more machines now have that same switch located on the F12 key. It usually will have a light that will change from blue (off) to orange (on). If you have no switch on the front, try hitting F12. If neither of these apply (or don't work), right-click on the internet window in the systray (looks like small tv in lower right hand corner next to the clock). Click on Properties and ensure that the device is Enabled.

Dyson cr01 outer door not locking, after pressing start, showing(lock outer doror, then press star)i am tring but same msg again

This solution worked for me, but there could well be different problems which give the same sympoms. My problem was that the microswitch had become worn with use and the interlock slide would no longer cause the switch button to depress but rather it was trying to push the button sideways.

Remove the 2 screws from the rear of the lid and daw the lid off by sliding backwards then upwards.

Remove the 2 torx screws from the top of the front panel that have now been revealed.

Carefully prise the front panel upwards only on the door lock side until the front panel comes forward giving you access to the interlock mechanism.

Remove the 2 torx screws from the front panel holding the actuator in place and remove the interlock mechanism from behind the front panel, disconnecting the two spade connectors and the door release strip.

Carefully prise the two sections of the actuator apart using a small screwdriver in the slots at either end

You will now see two microswitches connected together by a short wire link.these switches are activated by grey plastic slides, one of which slides when the door catch is engaged in the interlock, the other slides when the first one has been actuated and the solenoid actuates. In my case the first one was worn and was jamming the switch instead of pressing it in.

Remove the two microswitches by prising one off its locating pins and lifting it up then prising the other off its locating pins.

There are 2 very small locking tabs on the switch. Prise them out slightly then the switch side can be lifted off.

Slide out the switch button, rotate it through 180 degrees and place back into the switch. This means that there will be a new face in contact with the actuator slide. Hopeully this will provide another few years of good service.

Rebuild by reversing the previouse steps.

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.

I cant turn my ps3 off

If you have the old non-slim PS3, press and HOLD the power button on the front-right of the console (near the disc drive). There is also a "main" switch on the back of the console to fully power it down.

If you have the slim PS3, press the power button on the front-right of the console.

You can also hold the PS button on your controller for a couple seconds to bring up some options, including turning off the system or controller.

How ca i turn on my ps2 slim without the power

If this is to allow you to play backup games then you will need to purchase a front loading slider device that will replace you existing front. You can get these from most gamer sites fairly cheap

With this manual slide you will be able to take out any disc with the power still switched on.

Hope this helps
