Power/Eject Switch

Recommended Posts

I believe I read somewhere there was an easy way to switch the working of the 2 buttons? Is there also some easy way to just use one button? Thinking of a slim with custom front plate here. Anyone got n info on this?

The buttons are just simple switches that connect two wires when pressed.  You can lengthen the wires and move them wherever you want, I use a power button in my controller so I don't have to get up out of my chair.  The circuit board for the buttons is very basic.  It is basically just a couple wires for the LEDs and a few wires for the buttons.  You could completely do away with the whole board with very little work.

Yes, swap the two wires on the connector of the power/eject board - SW1 Eject and SW2 Power

No easy way to use 1 switch for two different functions.

I was thinking just power button, thinking slim without dvd. Guess I can just remove the one of the buttons. And use the one left as power then.

I wouldn't mod the original, you never know when you might need it.  I would buy a cheap project board and wire it up the way you want it.  You can cut it to whatever size you need and easily attach any wires, buttons, and LEDs you want.  Something like this Please login or register to see this link.

I see your point, but I believe I have around 20 extras boards. So I can sacrifice one for testing purposes for sure :)

In that case you can definitely modify it. just map out the traces and if you have to cut one you need you can always jumper a wire to fix the trace.  It's a very basic board.  It basically just acts as a mount for the buttons and LEDs, it is no problem to modify.

I was thinking the same. It wouldn't be difficult to just use wires and a switch instead for the board either I guess. I am just not experienced in working with pcbs and schematics, but I am fond of learning new stuff. I'll see if I do a "slimmer" build soon. Will first have to finish the one I am doing now. Also have 2 other consoles that need finishing details.

Is it safe to remove parts of the pcb? Even with traces?

Yes. I chopped off the bottom of mine with a hacksaw.

Do I need to cut and solder the cables, or is it possible to remove them from the plug? Like pressing on the metal on the side of the plug? 214f6424be9ad3e44959ddb7a85dcd69.jpg

      Remembering back to when I purchased my first Xecuter 3 mod chip, I was annoyed to discover the bank switch did not come with it. Payed the price for getting a used one, or at least making sure it came with everything. I looked all over to see if someone could help me jumper connections so I could use the different banks available to no avail. Finally I bought one new, which is not a choice nowadays.
      So I am dissecting switches and making schematics for each, starting with the most popular Xecuter 3. I have already mapped out the Xecuter 2.2 Pro and Xecuter 2.3b and will make a .jpg for them as well.
      Not being familiar with the programs used to edit pictures and make these, it took me 3 times as long to make this one schematic than it took me to test and map it out. I'm saying this in hopes I won't get flamed for poor work, I just want to help.
      Let me know what you think.
