    Hey Everyone...I'm trying to find a replacement power switch for my SX-780 and was wondering if there is a substitute for the original ASK-507 that wouldn't require any major modifications .

    Thanks,

    The switch can be opened and repaired. Use caution in bending back the retention tabs and they can be re-used. The contacts are pretty common to other Alps designs, and the problems are similar.

    Thanks guys but the receiver is a parts unit that I'm bringing back to life and the switch is one of the parts missing.

    That auction site has several for sale at any given time. In the interim. you can rig an external switch. I would avoid altering the board of faceplate just to fit a different switch. If might be possible to pigtail in a smaller push/push switch temporarily without altering the face.
