PE Broken Power Switch

I dropped my PE and the only casualty was a broken power switch. I just slides back and forth with no resistance or spring back. I opened it up and it looks like that could be something missing between the plastic switch on the case and the component on the mother board that must actually make the contact. Any idea what it is and if there is a way to get a new one.

Also any pictures of a working switch mechanism would be helpful.

Thanks

Hoagie

Exactly what is broken? Is it the plastic part of the metal switch soldered in the circuit board, or is it the plastic part that operates that switch.

If it is the metal switch then go to http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...=switch&page=9 post #135 for pictures and http://www.mobileread.com/forums/sho...switch&page=10 post #142 for the part. The de and re soldering is up to you.

cable release

Anyone have any info on how to release the cables easily so as to not break them?

First thing you must remember is to NOT PULL ON THE WIRES.

The cables made up of discrete wires have plugs. If necessary use a small flat screwdriver to lever the ends a little at a time until you can lift the plug free.

Flat printed cable sockets may have a lock clip that retains the cable. In that case you have to carefully slide the the lock away from the socket - it moves only one or two millimetre. If there isn't a lock clip then the cable will have reinforcing which you grip and use to pul the cable free.

With flat printed cables it is advisable to mark which way up they are.
