    Before you purchase anything, use Google!

    Also, what version system do you have - the v12 aka PSTwo? I know that's what you wrote, but I'm just checking...

    Good Luck and post back

    IS it repairable?

    also there are alot of on/off switches at auto parts stores not sure how you would work the wiring though it might be able to work since all it does is turn on/off and reset. just my 2 ents

    I've done exactly the same, I've enquired with a few parts sites & it doesn't look good, at least until PSTwo spares are available to but

    Don't think so, took it to an electrician at work, he looked at it and said it was just to small to get anything on it.

    Mine still worked when the contacts were lined up, you could try gluing it (PVA maybe?) but not sure if it would hold when the case is put back on.

    If a piece of metal makes the contacts then it will worl but, it's a messy problem.

    Thanks for that, they have the eject ribbon listed but not the board that houses the on/off switch. I have e-mailed them to see if they do sell this part.

    I'll let you know what I find out.
