Need a replacement switch please!

Recommended Posts

Hi all. I have a faulty Right Difficulty switch on my 2600 6-switch woody. Does anyone have a spare switch to sell me? Or know where I can get one?

 

I'm in the UK, and there is nowhere I've found that sells spares like this. The only option I found was on eBay from Canada, which worked out a ridiculous $30 (£23-ish) including postage to the UK.

 

Any advice or offers appreciated! (erm, please!)

Best Electronics is a good source, however I think they have a $20 min purchase, plus shipping on top of that would probably be in the $30 range again. If you're adventurous enough to desolder and replace the old one, I'd say try and take the one you have apart and clean it. You can actually leave it soldered in place. Just pry the little metal tabs out that wrap around the bottom of the switch. Once you get enough wiggle room, the top half will come off. Then you can clean all the gunk with rubbing alcohol and a q-tip. It can be a pain to put it back together, and some people use dielectric grease during re-assembly. The only time I've ever had to replace the entire switch is when the little handle/stub is broken off. If you still have issues, let me know and I might have a spare switch... I'm not local though.
