I have to hold Power Switch
#1
I'm experiencing a power switch issue. My power switch is working as a momentary switch as in it springs back to the left if I let it go, unfortunately this shuts of the system. If I continue hold it to the right, the system loads up and stays on but the power LED never lights up. If I plug the USB directly into the pie I don't need to hold the switch. If I plug the USB into the PCB, I have to hold the power switch. Everything else seems to be working fine. I used your supplied image in Google Drive. Is there something I'm missing?

I would suspect a bad connection to the Pi. I wonder if there’s a bad solder joint on the pin that controlls the power on/off feature. Can you send a photo of the Pi and it’s solder?

That was probably the issue, but now I have another issue. I'm using the hammer header and I accidentally hammered it too far. Oops lol. Any tips for a fix or am I buying a new header and Pi Zero?

Nevermind I was able to reset the header. Working well now! Thanks
