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: https://uk.rs-online.com/web/p/tactile-switches/4791413/?relevancy-data=636F3D3126696E3D4931384E525353746F636B4E756D626572266C753D656E266D6D3D6D61746368616C6C26706D3D5E2828282872737C5253295B205D3F293F285C647B337D5B5C2D5C735D3F5C647B332C347D5B705061415D3F29297C283235285C647B387D7C5C647B317D5C2D5C647B377D2929292426706F3D3126736E3D592673723D2673743D52535F53544F434B5F4E554D4245522677633D4E4F4E45267573743D34373931343133267374613D3437393134313326&searchHistory={"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!
