Equinox 800 On/Off Power button malfunction

Hi all

I found this on Youtube and thought it may interest forum members.

I've put the link to the video below:



Just to say that this has not happened to me, I am just passing it on as an item of interest!

p.s. I would be grateful if a moderator would let me know the protocol for doing this sort thing! :-SS

I've only seen that one so far although I believe that somebody on here had another button stick on them. ::g

Yes I remember that as well Fred. I believe it was returned to supplier, but don’t quote me on that.

It’s a tiny, fiddly button at best and with a cover on almost impossible to use.
I marked the cover on mine, where the button is, took it off and cut a small section out with a craft scalpel. Works a treat now. ::g
