Power Switch Replacement

Repair Instructions

The power switch is a SMD component, which in case of failure it can be easily removed from the main board using a hot air gun. If this tool is not available, a good solution will be to break the metal frame from the sides with a cutter pliers or a Dremel tool, being careful not to pull the pads off the board. Also, the contact leads will need to be cut to facilitate the desoldering. Then desolder the leads and pads with an iron and clean them with the iron and desoldering braid. Finally put the connector in place and carefully solder the metal frame support pads and contact pads using a thin-tipped iron.
