VECTREX Power Switch Revealed


Recommended Posts

Sorry I wasn't clear. I suggest that you leave the switch in place (you need it to adjust the volume...) but to avoid potential problems, please don't just "bridge" the two contacts on the switch, make sure to unsolder the power wires from it and link them properly one by one.


I mean, you may not want to have the power going "trough" a partially damaged part... I may be wrong of course, but leaving a power wire connected on a damaged switch may be a source of problems in the future.

After fumbling a few dozen attempts to reassemble the switch, I hit on the idea of supergluing the assembly together by putting a drop in the pivot boss. The thing held together long enough to mate and be locked down again by the metal tabs, then the glue bond easily broke when the switch was first turned.
