Start/Stop Switch Install for Numark PT01

Featured Video Play Icon

 

Adds start/stop switch to the Numark PT01

Parts needed:
SPST (Push 0n – Push off) Switch

notes:
-any push on – push off or latching switch with a greater than ~300mA rating will work for this
-the switch listed above was used for this install
-if you remove the PT01 faceplate, this switch fits in the existing spring hole without drilling (remove the spring, which is attached internally with one screw)

-Remove the Existing Switch
1. Unsolder and remove the existing start/stop switch (see pic_1_remove_switch)

-Mount the New Switch
2. Mount the new switch in a preferred location (see pic_2_mounted switch). For this guide, the switch is mounted in the existing spring hole with the faceplate removed (see faceplate removal guide for instructions on removing the faceplate).

-Solder Wires
3. Solder 2 wires to the existing switch PCB (see pic_3_add_wires)

4. Solder these wires to the new switch (see pic_4_connect_switch)

  1. if I were to install a LED latching switch, would that be possible? how would i go about it?

  2. In pic 3 is the middle pin (without cable) the ground?
    I’m trying to use a taster instead of a switch

    1. No, that pin is unused. I’m not sure what a taster is, but you’d have to use a gnd from the main PCB.

  3. Well Hell I think I messed this simple task up pretty big lol…

    On the PC12P025D I basically over heated the soldering point and it came off along with most of the lead that embedded on the circuit board… Is there any way I can salvage this my dude?

    1. Am I just able to bypass the circuit board the original start/stop switch was mounted to and just directly connect them to the red and red/white wired and get the same effect?

    2. For sure. Just solder your wires to the soldered pins that the traces lead to, instead.

      1. Just saw your reply but i really appreciate it!
