      Hi Everyone. Has anyone ever worked on a Steelseries Arctis 9 Wireless Headset? I have one at the moment where the customer said he dropped it. After he dropped it the device would not power on. He dismantled it and said that the power button has detached from the PCB. The switch is broken. There are two identical tactile switches on this device, the one that is attached clicks when pressed. The one that broke off does not. Does anyone know where I can source this tactile switch? I tried Farnell and RS but could not find it. I scrapped a lot of glue from the switch so I suspect the customer tried to glue it back on and the adhesion has caused the switch to seize up. Thank you and I appreciate any advice anyone has.

      Bob

        OK so if anyone has this issue or similar I bought a pack of tactile switched on Amazon ( https://tinyurl.com/2ubbd42f ) and although it did not contain the exact switch I dismantled one of similar size and swapped the mechanism between the switches. I then soldered it back onto the system board for the headset and it now works.
