HP p6320y power button issue

by Rose352 / July 22, 2011 12:15 PM PDT

My daughter spilled a small amount of liquid on the power button (crazily this power button is on top of the case) while the system was on, which then shut the computer down. I took the system apart and verified that the only place I could see liquid was on the power switch. The power supply itself is in the back no where near the button.

Any decent tech and repair shop can sub in a switch.

A push button switch is a FUNGIBLE item. One is as good as the next. Any decent shop can fit a new push button for that power switch in less than the usual one hour of shop time.

Thank you. After a good drying out the computer is working fine. Thank goodness nothing else was fried.
