RE: ResMed AirSense 10 broken on-off switch
WOW, what an incredible set of responses, blows me away! Thank you all for your responses!

Unfortunately, the machine has gone lights out, not sure if it is the power supply, an internal fuse, or absence of the wireless board connector. When I disassembled the unit, I found the power switch had become jammed in its own housing, and once it was freed, it now appears to function perfectly based on the faint microswitch sound and feel. But when I plugged it in, it stayed on a minute, then powered off, not to be restarted. Any ideas?

rem52, I will give smartstart a try, and that will resolve another issue with getting up to turn on the blower when ready. Thank you.

sdb7802, I recognize the part, and hope that I do not have to try to replace it. I've had some experience replacing parts on a tight printed circuit board, and replacing the part is a skill I've not yet mastered, with not damaging the board with heat from the soldering iron, and getting the holes clear enough to get a new part in. I too am a x ham and ee by training.

Welcome, Koshari

I'd check the input voltages from the power supply.
