Question about Audio Players & Recorders
Radio switches itself on at any time, day or night. It is OK when driving because it can be switched off but at night or when parked it draines the battery. The Vauxhall garage answer is a new unit @£1500. can you help.
Note: At times it is not possible to switch on but usualy comes on at the 2nd or 3rd try. Is there an exchange deal anywhere? ( not with Vauxhall)
Is it possible to take to a Siemans Repair agent in UK?
Heres a question....does the main power switch "feel" like the others.
The main power switch is one of those that gets a workout. After looking at some images, I am going to guess that it is what is called a "Tac" ( short for tactile ) switch.
How do you tell if it feels right?.....go to the least used switch on the unit ( is should theoretically be like new if it is the least used ) ,and very slowly push it in. What do you feel?....some resistance and then it gives?.....do you hear a slight snap ( make sure the unit is off or the volume is all the way down ). Now go to the power switch....does it feel the same ? A sign that ths switch is finished is that there is no travel to it, that is, when you push is it stops immediately....the least used switch should have a little "room" in it before it hits bottom and makes the connection.....I'll bet the switch is shot.......give it a go......Thanks..Rob
If you can feel a big difference in the switches, then I would take it to a local electronics shop and see it they can replace the switch ( those type of tac switches are EVERYWHERE ), or maybe find a seimens shop and have them look at it.....better than 1500 !!!!
