    Carver power switch doesn't hold in on position

    10-8-18
    Anyone know the correct part number for a AC power switch for the Carver 4000 pre-amp?
    I see what I believe is an appropriate switch here: https://www.ebay.com/itm/Alps-SDU3P-...r/282652002874
    Possible Part number is:

    Alps SDU3P Power Switch TV-3

    Frank,

    Unfortunately, it appears that Carver C-4000 service manual does not include a parts list.

    It has been a while since I owned a Carver C-4000.

    Also it appears that the switch you show on ebay is very similar to the power switch Phase Linear used in some of their products.

    Perhaps WOPL Sniffer (Perry) can be of some assistance. He has worked on a few C-4000's in the last few years.

    Could you provide us with a photo of the power switch you have in your C-4000?

    Is the one on ebay not exactly the same or just too expensive?

    Ed

    Is the spring or other part broken or not connected properly?

    Can you post a picture of it?

    The power switch will rarely if ever hold itself in the 'on' position so, I by-pass it. I'm using a power-strip.

    It's difficult to show it as I haven't unmounted it because the pre-amp has every input and output being utilized: 2 tape decks, 3 turntables, 2 SUT's, a tuner and 2 CD's. I would be like a life's upheaval to disassemble.
    I'm trying to ascertain the correct part number for a replacement switch. It could be a TV3 or a TV5. There isn't any parts list so, I'm not certain until I pull the old one out or asking if anyone knows from their own experience.
