i just took out the button it had and put in a rocker switch that i wired to a pin cut from the plug socket .
and i also used a button that i wired to the reset switch right next to the power plug so i can use eiter one
I need a little help on this one. I pulled out on an old 486 chassis, a push on/off power switch which has 4 terminals coming off of it: whit, black, brown and blue.
Also a smaller push on/off switch which was for turning on/off the turbo mode.
Can either of these switches be used to cut power on and off? if so can someone tell me how?
I'm sure that would work; use a ohmmeter and measure across two pins until you come to a pair that are shorted (0 ohms) when the switch is pushed in and open (infinite, or something close, ohms) when not pushed in.
Looking at the power jack from the rear, cut the RH leg jack and gently prise it away from the side. Solder the leads to your power switch to either side. (thanks to stresstest at busted cherry forum). Be sure to insulate/stabilise with hotmelt glue or similar. I mounted a small slide switch adjacent to the power jack at the rear. I cut away one of the vent deperession and drilled two tiny holes so I could mount it with m2 screws. If you wish to replace the standby switch at the front panel (WHY???), make sure that you can plug/unplug the cable, somehow.
I must say that do not use the power switch much, preferring the almost instant powerup from standby mode.
