    hey Roniecon,

    No knob... just a mini toggle switch. So I'm thinking replacement of entire switch.

It may just be the knob itself,pull the knob off and see if the stem sticking out can be turned with some pliers,if the stem is in the same shape,then you will have to replace the switch.

    Yes,I would just get a universal one somewhere,and it will work just as well,look at the legs on the switch to make sure you get a similar switch.

Gear shift feels like a pin fell out. Seems to be flopping around. Won't engage in any gear.

Look at the tube the shifter goes into, is there a pin in a hole there? If not find it and reinstall the pin that retains the shift arm to the steering column barrel.

My Dell D830 wireless switch seems to be broken. It just flops back & forth. Unfortunately it's broken in the off position. Is there another way to turn on the wireless?

If you are not willing to risk your laptop, do not continue. If you are, be sure to take all possible grounding and electrocution protection measures.

If you look at the service manual for the D830, you can access/see the inside switch to the left, below and to the left of the red arrow, in the first diagram here:

The pins that push the slider on/off have probably broken on your case, but you can probably manually flip the switch to the ON position. The switch may still be broken, but you can at least use your wireless!

Note the series of instructions on that linked page are to REMOVE the system board - you will not need to do EVERYTHING, but it gives all the steps to open up the case which will let you access the switch. Taking out the keyboard is not enough.

it depends...if you plan on watching dvd's in while parked with your E-brake engaged only then it goes to your E-brake
if you want to watch them while in motion:

and If you have the old firmware then all you need to do is ground the parking brake wire

or if you have the new firmware(just bought the system) a toggle switch is involved:
1 - connect e-brake wire from dvd unit to the switch
2 - connect a ground wire from switch to the unit chassis(any good metal grounding surface will do)
3 - pop in a dvd, toggle the switch back and forth 2 or 3 times depending on what wire you placed where...and voilaa!! your dvd system should work in motion!!

There is a smaller "u" shaped spring in the middle of the neck mechanism that I found one side was snapped off. Looks normal, but it's broken. I made one out of a coat hanger for temporary purposes and it works like new! I will order one from Hasbro. Hope this helps!
