Power switch doesn't catch on the board
#1
I cannot seem to get the power switch to work as the black switch on the cm3 board sits too low and the switch jist moves over it. Any ideas on a fix? Thanks.

The first thing to do is make sure that your shell is closing fully. Maybe there is something keeping it from coming together all the way.

I have tried to remove some foam from behind the screen to see if it was holding the board too high but I am not sure it is possible to get it to catch without putting pressure on top of the power connectors. I screwed the circuit board in and took some pictures to show how it cannot currently go any lower than it is.

I think I'll find a way to rectify it, I was thinking a small wire to bind them together rather than glue or somehow extending the prong up. Alternatively I could put pressure on the power connector from the back of the case.

In the bottom right of that photo, there’s a screw in the circuit board. That shouldn’t be there. I bet it’s holding the shell from coming together fully.

Okay when I put it together, I placed a small piece of cardboard under the switch and it's raised it enough that it seems to work no problem.

The bottom right screw is just there to see how close I can get the board to the shell, I have been putting that in from the outside of the shell when testing.

Thanks for the help, I think it's all in place time for the final build! Big Grin

Oh, okay. Smile

I'm glad you got it working. Sorry for jumping to the wrong conclusion there.
