    My plastic on/off switch cracked and fell out of the camera. I've been inserting the end of a paper clip into the tiny hole left by the missing switch. I use the paper clip to slide the mechanism which powers the camera on and off. Best Buy wanted $25 to evaluate the problem and would not assure me they could even get the part. Any suggestions?

How do I replace the on/off switch on the 50" TV?

Sounds like the knob to On/Off switch is broken. It is a very difficult to get part from open electronic spare part market; even though it is very cheap to buy. Contact the authorized service centre for Toshiba. They only can help you in this case.

I need to replace the crock pot that got broken.

Most major manufacturers supply manuals online and access to some consumable parts, so if you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, you may be pleasantly surprised as usually, if available, one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, Dealer Network for spare part supplies as required.

The information is normally free of charge.

I hope this helps.

Ptt cant be turn ON


if you can't feel a clicking sound when you press the PTT button, then most probably that the micro switch under it is either get stuck or broken/damage.

Lucky if it only get stuck and need not to change it. just release again the switch and be cautious cause it is small and can be broken easily. you can open your phone using a t6 screw driver and locate the switch inside. it is tricky to change it if it is broken and need tools, spare parts and the skill to replace it cause it is very small. Have it repair to the nearest service center instead.

Hope I helped you...

Don't forget to rate me OK! Thanks....

Need to replace on off switch not working where do I find one

If you were to log on to the manufacturer's web site, I think you will be pleasantly surprised as usually one is able to download, by model number, Customer Instruction Manuals, and a list of Dealers for spare parts, as required.

Just Google the manufacturer's name and follow the links. Make certain you are directed to the manufacturer's web site as some search engines direct you to other sites and they charge for the information that is normally free of charge.

There will be lots of TV repair places that will have one if you remove the broken one as a sample.

I hope this helps.

Clock works but on button does not. Help! I need my coffee! this is for my Braun Aromaster KF 12.

I would take it apart and verify if the switch works with a DMM (multimeter) on the ohms(resistance) setting.

if the switch is bad then replace it.

if the switch tests ok then keep searching until you find the problem.

if a major part is broken you might want to buy another at a thrift store or yard sale and keep the broken one for spare parts.

Old pre 911 ST7868W phone died purchase used exact replacement model and want to know how to activate relp?

if you have a spare unit,don't bother to take apart the old broken one. Contact your service provider's Tech Support and tell them you wish to replace your broken Startac with another unit and give them the replacement units ESN. They can add the new one to your account,it will replace the broken unit. All ESN's are unique. You can REPLACE one with another,you can't take parts out to (legally) substitute one ESN for another.
