FBV Shortboard MkII - Switch replacement part info

Recommended Posts

Hi,  I have a Spider V 60 and I've just picked up a second hand Shortboard MkII.  However som of the switches do not respond.  I have googled away a few hours and find that it's a fairly common problem.  I understand the solution but can't find the parts.


On the old forum, someone posted the switch details as a 6mm TACTILE SWITCH, THRUHOL made by GC Electronics, part number PTS645SL43-P.  Anyone know where I could find this switch or similar in the UK?


I've looked on a few sites and there are lots of similar switches.  As far as i can tell it is 6mm (is that 6mm x 6mm ?) On-Off switch rather than momentary but there still seems to be options.


Help please!

I've solved the problem so here is the answer for anyone else that has this problem.


I used the information I had found and took an educated guess!  I ordered these: Black Button Tactile Switch, Single Pole Single Throw (SPST) 50 mA @ 24 V dc 1.4mm.  Link:{"enabled"%3Afalse}


Worked perfectly.  The technique of removing the old one, cleaning the solder off and inserting the new one was a whole different experience! 


Hope it's useful!
