Check the cable where it connects to the motherboard. Check the cable where it connects to the switch, resolder any loose connections. Usually these do not break easily, but if it is broken you can buy a generic switch at newegg (

Systemax SYX-SBT-X58 desktop.Is there a front power switch part for tower or another alternative available?

I can't see how holding the button a little longer would make any difference, the button press sends a quick little signal to start the BIOS operating system built into your motherboard. Maybe you just need a new switch as it could be shorting somewhere when you press it a certain way. You can remove the wires from the back of the switch and touch them together to see if the pc starts. If that is too complicated then i would suggest taking it to a store before any real damage is done.

Front blower motor town country intermitantly stops working. Rear blower works fine.

Most likely the motor is going bad, but it could be the switch. If fiddling with the switch will make it work sometimes, replace the control panel. Otherwise, replace the motor.

Could this be a User Interface,Board 316239500 part problem? or a Electronic Control Board part problem?

Normally, the E.O.C. (electronic oven control) only controls power the ehe bake/broil side for the oven. Doesn't control power to the element. If you have already replaced the infinite switch to that eye, the element itself could be faulty. There is a sensor inside the element that is supposed to communicate with the infinite switch to determine the proper cycling temp for what you selected.

I have an RCA rear projection tv. The model number for my unit is P56923BL. The service number is P56923BLYX1. The TV Serial Number is 851251224. The inside Component Assy Serial Number is 8512512243....


Most of the keypad malfunction is caused by dirt build-up inside the tact switch. Because of that the contact can no longer function. Electrical contact cleaner can clean it by directly spraying into the switch.

Another option is to replaced the tact switch with new one. It will not cost you much because it is one of the cheapest parts. Click this LINK to have an idea what the tact switch is. Check the actual switch installed in your unit before ordering.

If you don't know how to solder and desolder it from the board, click the link below for more info.

Driver's side power window will not go up or down. I believe that the switch is no longer working. How do you swap out the switch?

Common problem for 2000-2005 Impalas. Mine went bad a year or so ago. Available on Ebay. Go new, not used. Or you can do what I did. Get a new one as back-up, took mine out, cleaned the contacts, put it back together, and resold my new one.
Anyway. There are two screws in the pull pocket rear of the switch. Remove screws and lift the rear end of the cover and unhook the front. Unplug the window and mirror plugs. The switch can be unclipped from the cover.
