Replacement rubber pads and rubber buttons for Lynx 1

Recommended Posts

Hello together,

 

recently I`ve got my first Lynx 1. Unfortunately the rubber pads and the rubber buttons (or silicone buttons) are in very bad shape.

I cleaned the board, especially the contact pads and so on.

Nevertheless some of them are not working at all.

Does anybody know where to get replacements for them?

 

Regards,

Dan

I would ether try buying a dead on on Ebay for parts or Best Electronics.

A dead Lynx is about 50 Euro or more - a bit too much for the rubbers.

Best Electronics I´m not sure...

 

Is a repair maybe possible?

For example taking replacement rubbers for the Gameboy, cutting the inner contact plate und fix with flexible glue to the originals?

Any thoughts about this?

You could search for "conductive rubber buttons". There may be some cheap alternatives that fit. It is also possible to use silicone glue to modify and fix rubber buttons.

Thanks for the hint karri.

Have some old rubber buttons here from other handhelds.

Will do a testrun on them with silicone glue. If succeed I will fix my Lynx buttons this way.

 

Btw. Why it`s so hard to find fitting replacement, market too small? (OK, guess it`s also the same for GG)...

I ordered a set for a Lynx 2 today from Best Electronics.  They have sets for both models for $5
