Power on / off button repair.

Post by Stew »

I made a repair to the Power on / off button that will have to do. The cover with the power button is not available in South Africa.
Firstly I extracted the power button with a cable wrap wire but a pair of tweezers or anything suitable will do.
I then cut two strips of PVC tape I had handy the width of the power button.
I adhered these to the power button underneath the power button over the cone shaped end shaping it to the cone as much as possible.
I then inserted the power button into it's recess so the ends of the cross shaped excess PVC tape were outside the hole, sticky side up.
I then cut a patch of PVC tape and put it over the button and the cross shaped pieces that were protruding (Borrowing my wife's fingers for assistance.)
It may not look fantastic but compared to the cost of a replacement unit will do me fine.
