7940/7960 Off-hook switch repair - what ist the best way to fix this

There is a problem with the off-hook switch on 7940/7960 phones. After some time the switch does not work. When you pick up the handset nothing happens.

What is the best way to fix this?

1: Clean the switch circuit board with alcohol?

2: Replace the switch circuit board?

3: Replace the rubber part of the switch?

 

Is it possible to replace the switch with another kind of switch?

 

Any other suggestions?
 
Any help would be appriciated.

Hi,The best would be to clean

Hi,

The best would be to clean the phone with Propyl-Alcohol (a normally used cleaner) and second would be to buy new phone (if you are using them for labs, then I shall highly recommend buy from eBay, most of the vendors @ eBay give great value for the money)

Hi Torleif, I unfortunately

Hi Torleif,

 

I unfortunately have a lot of experience with this, since a lot of my phones are old and I teach my administrators how to fix them. 

The off-hook switch is an easy fix, follow these steps:

1. Remove the 4 rear screws (2 are located under the rubber stands).

2. Open up the phone (It is pressure clamped so you need to apply a bit of force.

3. Locate the metal "spring" or "wire" that controls the switch. It has most likely come out of his socket. Place it back in, test the off-hook switch movement before reassembling.

 

Let me know how that works.

 

Thanks,

 

FG
