[IC-7000] PTT switch on mic

James Brock <jamesbrock@...>
 

Are you certain the microswitch is inoperative.  Twice I have had problems with the handheld microphone.  I found that the piece of plastic between where you hold your thumb and the microswitch. Don't remember what I did but seem to remember I had to put some kind of spacer between the plastic piece and the switch.  

If you are not sure it is the switch suggest opening the microphone and directly operate the switch with the end of a small screwdriver.  

Wish I remember more carefully what I did to make it work but for certain I had to do something that pushed the motion further into the switch. This was about two years ago,

Cal,
Here's a post from a while back. Icom has the part, and they are helpful identifying parts if you call them. I do not know from experience about the other switches. Also, sometimes just touching up the solder pads will fix it.

Resistance is futile.
(don't know about reactance, though)

The PTT switch failed on my HM-151 microphone after 6-years of faithful duty. A new microphone is over $100. I found the following replacement part numbers for the microswitch. The replacement was very straight-forward:


Icom: 2260003120 SKQJLBA010 $2.35


Mouser: 688-SKQJLB $1.16
Manufacturer Number: SKQJLBA010
6.0 x 6.0 x 3.85mm 160 gf
ALPS Tactile Switch


Perhaps this will be of use to someone else!

The push to talk button on my ic7000
microphone is not working. I found that the small
microswitch is bad. Does anyone know the part number for
that switch or an acceptable
substitute?
