Smart Power button just stopped working

Unread postby campbell » Thu Mar 09, 2017 2:29 am

No response to pushing "on/off" button at all. Everything else powers up and responds as normal. What can I do? Has anyone had any luck desoldering and cleaning the button or anything like that? The Smart Power 2 does NOT work for me as a replacement.

Edit: I have a coworker who says the exact same thing happened to him a few months ago.

Severely wiggling it seems to turn it on, and then it works for a while.

I have had mine for about 2 years, no button issue.

It would be very easy to replace though.

Keep pressing the power button for 2~3 seconds.
If the power button is okay, the LCD should turn off.
