Full Version: Took Apart My Sl-c3100 And Broke The Battery Door Switch

It's been years since I started up the Zaurus, and I broke something.
I snapped the super tiny switch toggle on the motherboard that is triggered by the plastic slider that locks in the battery door.

What should I do? A spring flew out from behind the little black switch, I recovered it only to have it bounce into oblivion shortly thereafter.

I'm handy with soldering. I'll send it to someone to fix. I'll do anything really. The unit is great other than this, it doesn't light up charging now so I think it needs to be fixed.

Thanks for any suggestions. I'd be happy to just solder a couple points together and have it remain in a permanent position if that would be advisable.

Cheers

Look for part SPVP110100 (available e. g. from Mouser Electronics). If you can live without it, you can remove it completely. I am not sure, whether Zaurus is active when it is open or closed. Please test. In the second case, you need to solder a piece of wire between two soldering points previously populated by the switch.

Much thanks for your helpful reply. Finding that part name/number would have been an exercise in frustration even with heightened google-fu, and you saved me that which is greatly appreciated. I will find it and update any findings when the replacement surgery begins.
