Broken power button

Plastic power button that pushes against the actual button on the circuit card is broken. It's part of a 5-button plastic piece just inside the chassis. Would be an easy fix if I can find a replacement. (Super glue on the razor thin plastic extension just doesn't cut it. I currently use a popsickle stick to make it work but I need it to be a little more user friendly for an elderly person. I know I can use a remote but would prefer the button on the TV instead. I'm not smart enough to fabricate a build of some sort that would support the wear & tear of a finger pressing up against it. Where can I find a replacement part? Thanks for any info you can provide!

SOURCE: no nothing

I am sure it can be repair,Checking the fuse was good idea but it seems the problem might be farther ahead,if you have no indication of power(no lights,no clicks)the problem might be in the power supply,there is a 5 volts supply that has to be running because is the power to the microprocessor(brain)and when you push the power button on the remote or the set the brain knows it and send the commands to everyone else to turn on,if you have the 5 volts and the brain is working the problem might be in the horizontal circuit ,possibly a bad horizontal output transistor(shorted)if he is bad it might have taken a fuse or a safety resitor.Some fuses dont look like the average fuse,they look more like resistors.If you are familiar with tv service We can give you all the help you need to find the problem ,if you are not too familiar with servicing electronics you might want to call servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

SOURCE: Sanyo DS25390 Cable Terminal Ripped off

I personaly would replace the entire unit, the capacitor is a Ceramic "DC Blocking/Couplng" capacitor, possibly a 0.001uF cap... I should think if ya take it to any component supplier/radio repair shop or the like they would be able to give ya a replacement?

SOURCE: broken remote, want sleep timer

Only if you can do this in the the menu from the front of the set. Some will let you but others do not include this in the menu . Then a remote will be the only way . You can go to www.replacementremotes.com to see if you can purchase a remote for your set . Good luck

SOURCE: coaxial output broken

If the connector end is not damaged and the tuner circuit board is not broken, you can solder this back onto tuner, and solder the end back on the circuit board. You should take the tuner out to do this proceedure. A TV shop usually charges $50.00 to do this.

I have same tv but the on/off button has broken and cant start the tv


On some models, there's a plastic piece which pivots, pushing the actual button itself. If you can take the back panel off and inspect it, you may find you can replace the little piece of plastic with something similar or use super glue to fix the button itself. Or you might be able to swap out the "info" button (or some other button you don't use as much) with the power button

Power button broke gfdn240el1ww


There are two main pieces to the front panel for the GFDN240EL1WW dryer-- the plastic panel and the circuit board. The actual replacement part is: Control Panel WE19M1687. The panel can be purchased for from places like partselect.com or repairclinic.com or Amazon or even EBay, etc. for $100-$200+.

The power button is just a piece of plastic mounted to another piece of plastic; it is not electronic. When pushed, it presses against the circuit board, which then turns the unit on/off. When the power button breaks, it typically means the little plastic button has broken off from the plastic panel. Most likely, the problem is the mount point for the button and the button is actually re-usable.

A cheaper quick-fix is to:
  • Remove top screw from back of the front panel
  • Remove main front knob from the panel
  • Remove screw from behind the front knob
  • Grab both sides of the front panel and push/pull up to remove the panel
  • Disconnect the block connector (power) from the circuit board after removing the panel
  • Locate the power button and mounting position
  • Inspect to see if it looks like you can glue the button back into place
  • Buy a small tube of loctite Stik'n Seal Ultra Universal Adhesive
  • Put some Stik'n Seal on the button mounting point for the power button (be generous)
  • Press the button onto the mounting point and hold for a few minutes
  • Add more Stik'n Seal around the edges of the mounting point and the button mount after you have held the button in place long enough so that it sticks
  • Let the whole thing dry for several hours (instructions on the adhesive say 24hrs
  • If you are worried about the button staying seated while the adhesive sets, you can always try tape it into place
  • When dry, replace the front panel by reversing the steps above used to remove the panel: connect the power block, slide the panel back into place, replace the front screw and knob, replace the top screw in the back of the panel

I have a compaq SR1630NX. I cannot turn the computer on. The green light in the back is on so there is power. I think the switch is bad as it feels broken does not click any more. can I get a new one. What...


Hi Sandy, It might just be that the power button is depressed or that the part that holds the button has been moved back too much.
What I did was remove the power button from the machine, checked the connections to the motherboard and removed then replaced the actual power button from the plastic that's holding it against the front panel of the computer. (it's a gray plastic square that has a black power button) Check that the button depresses when you press it now. For me, it turns out the plastic part that holds the power button was pressed back too much. Removing and then putting it back and pushing it all the way to the front (the actual gray box), fixed the problem for me. Just check that the button from the plastic front panel and the actual button (gray plastic with black lever) are actually working and make contact. Maybe try using it a bit without the front panel?
I hope it may be as simple for you as it was for me. If you do this, just don't forget to remove all power from the machine and remove the plastic front panel from the case. Good luck!

I have a sears aircompressor model# 919.163450 Broke off intake muffler How do I get the rest of it out {plastic sleeve in head housing}?


Hello, what I do when I have a problem like this is I find a piece of metal (chisel, screwdriver) that fits the inside of the broken part (the tool is slightly larger than the inside diameter of the sleeve) and push firmly while turning counter-clockwise removing the broken plastic sleeve. Sometimes, if a tool will not fit on the inside of the sleeve, then I push it against the broken stub of the sleeve, and push against the stub while turning out the sleeve. I hope this helps.

Fisher & Paykel M#DD603SS - While not running F1 repair mssg


Actually the part is called a Link Actuator. There is one for the upper drawer and one for the lower. When the drawer is shut, it will actuate and the dishwasher will lift the drawer up against the upper lid. When the actuator is broken, this will trigger the flood switch which inturn triggers the F1 code. In the meantime, when the dishwasher is turned on, the water will shoot over the side walls of the drawer and get down below to damage the terminal block module.

Ibm 9513-ag1 flat monitor broken switch


I have the same monitor. I had the same problem you have. I couldn't find the correct replacement part so I improvised. The plastic part you refered to just activates a micro switch on the circuit board. In my case the micro switch worked just fine so I used 5 plastic buttons off of some ball point pens as a replacement. I took the monitor out of its plastic case and drilled holes in the front bezel directly over each of the 5 micro switches. I then put the buttons from the ball point pens in holes. So now the push buttons from the ball point pens act as a substitute for the broken part. I hope this helps.

Dimension E510 LCD Monitor with broken power switch


Hi,

Thanks for responding. Nothing happened when you pressed in the power button and the warranty had expired; Dell was no help so don't bother. I read that there were tab(s) on the plastic power button that had broken off and no longer engaged the power switch. I "solved" my monitor problem by drilling through the plastic case between the power button and the minus button, pulled out the plastic power button and pressed the switch with a flat screwdriver to turn on the monitor. Now I leave the power on all the time and put a piece of black masking tape over the space where the power button was. Not the best solution I'm sure, the hole isn't pretty, but it works. If anyone else wants to try this solution be careful when you drill through the plastic case because the switch you want to engage occupies the space between the buttons, exactly where you are drilling. If you drill through the switch you might as well throw the monitor into the recycle bin. I expected to find an actual button switch and was surprised to find a flat, 2 prong circuit switch instead. Good luck to all.

My E machine


How does the power button feel when you push it, can you feel a little resistance or here or feel a little click? if not the button assembly may be broken. The E Machine has a button assembly that is one piece of plastic with two sharp angles on it to reach the actual button that turns on the machine. I have fixed a couple of these with 5 minute epoxy and some hard plastic I had laying around.

How to fix a dell monitor dimension 2400 power button broken


The last guest left us hanging with, "easy fix" so, I ventured ahead to see what I could see by opening up my lcd, which was a puzzle in itself. After UNPLUGGING the monitor and removing the stand and the 4 obvious screws in the back, turn the monitor onto its back and placing your palms against one side of the monitor, and using your FINGER TIPS, gently pull back the plastic lip away from the LCD screen. Move along the lip, doing this a little bit at a time. You'll hear and feel it snap loose. Repeat on the remaining three sides. It may take a few rotations to free all the sides, doing a little at a time, so as not to put undo stress on the plastic that is not yet loose. The bottom lip from behind which lies the offending "on/off" button will not move as freely as the other sides because of the ribbon cord that attaches the circuit panel to the main body. So STOP pulling when you feel it become taught and carefully turn the monitor onto its face to complete the face's removal. Undo the cloth tape that secures the ribbon cable to the monitor. This will give you the necessary slack you need to do your dirty work. BTW, we're not disconnecting the ribbon cable from its connections- that would be bad - just remove that haphazardly placed piece of tape used to keep the thing snug and save it for when you're ready to close it back up. OKAY! There a four tiny screws that affix the green circuit board. You'll need a thin, jewelers type phillips head or a one from a synthe-sized tool set to remove these. Now, if your issue is like mine, you'll see when you again carefully remove the circuit board, that the on/off button has cracked off of the piece that holds it. This is why the button remained stuck in one positon when it was depressed. Re-align it so that it is uniform to the other buttons and place a few small strips of cut electrical tape to hold it in place to the end where it broke off. Crazy glue or the like won't give the button the flexability it needs and will probably just crack again. What the tape (I layered 3 strips) will do, once the circuit board is scewed back, is allow the button to return to position after it's pushed. I just did this and so far, after a dozen on/offs it's still working. Good luck. Go have a beer.
