Power button help

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Okay, I've owned my Zalman Z11 Plus for about a year now, love the case. But, I do need help with my power button. Somehow, the two green wires, the black wire, and the white wire became disconnected from the plastic piece under the power button. You can take apart the power button itself and it will reveal where the wires are located. I am here to ask someone to take apart their power button assembly, (which is very ease, takes five minutes), and post some pics of where the wires actually go. I couldn't find anywhere on the Web about the assembly, so I want to ask you guys if you can give a fellow DIY'er some help!

Thanks for anything you guys can help me with!

Cheers,

SR

It doesn't make any difference. The button is just a momentary contact switch. It connects the two wires together when it is held in. There is no polarity since there is no "circuit".

Okay, well it does matter somewhat cause there is also wires that illuminate the power button itself. I've asked some Z11 owners if they can supply me with pics of their power button harnesses so I can wire it to how it originally was. That is ideal. But I did learn something today though, thanks Bill.
