Power switch problem after disassembly NUC10I7FNK

Hi all,

I have assemblyed an Akasa Turing for my NUC10I7FNK, but I have a problem with the power button. It seem to lack something. Please see photos attached.

So, I can't turn my pc on !

The last picture shows the button of the Akasa and a caoutchouc part from the Nuc I don't know where it's from...

What can I do ?

Thanks !

Hi Laurent,

From the attached images I can see that the Power Button is a part from the case, while on the Assembly Instruction Video,  I can see that it comes with the case and you don't need to disassembly it. From the Akasa Case Review I can learn that the Power Button has no feedback and need to be pressed little harder.

 

Hope this helps

Leon

Hi Leon,

Thank you very much!

But it seem that when I press the button, it dosn't touch anything on the motherboard.
See picture attached, with the button in place (not pressed).
Doesn't it lack something beetwin the button and the motherboard?

Could I make the contact manually to test? perhaps is there an additional problem?
I have tried to touch the mothercard at the place of the button with a screwdriver, but nothing appened.

Thanks!
Laurent

Hi Laurent,

Indeed something is missing or disassembled from the switch on your board. When I compare how the switch assembly looks in my NUC and also on the Video Guide (I've given link in my post above), I can see that black cube is missing. It should be part of the switch and should be not taken off. Please refer to the attached image and also the the video clip.

Leon,
Thanks!
I have removed the black cube to see something on the photo. You can see it on my first picture.
But it seem to be only a protection and not have a mecanical or contact function.

Thank you very much!

OMG, during the removal of the chassis, you broke off part of the power button component. Essentially, the front half of the button component on the board is missing. This left the factory in place and working. You weren't being careful enough during your disassembly.

If you open the FN NUCs' Technical Product Specification, you can see in lower left corner of Figure 12 (page 23) how the component sticks out into the notch in the board. Here is snippet showing this:

We can try to get part information so that you can attempt the replacement of this switch yourself. Alternatively, you can connect an external (single-pole, single-throw, normally open) momentary contact button to pins 6 and 8 of the Front Panel header.

Hope this helps,

Hi Scott,

Thank you very much! Effectively, the dissasembly of the case was not totally controled...

Do you know where to buy the part? I'm also waiting for an answer of Intel support, but I bougth the Nuc on Amazon France.

Thanks!

No, that part is not what you want (even if it were available). The pins on the board's header are smaller and closer together (2.0mm pitch vs. 2.54mm pitch). The concept and contents of the package is correct but you need a kit that is for this smaller pitch. An alternative is to find an adapter and use a kit like this with it.

Here is example of adapter: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00DBIHE2A.

Hi,

The problem was my NUC needed Akasa Turing FX and not Akasa Turing...

And I didn't succed to turn it on manually, because the button was under the place I thought and hidden by the metal tab (see picture).

Thanks to all
Laurent
