Shipping to Conrad Johnson

Post by camiablue » Wed Jun 21, 2017 11:36 am

Hi,

I have own a MF2300 for a year now and the power button broke. I called Conrad Johnson and I have to send it to Virginia for service. It's a heavy piece of equipment to mail from California. Would it be recommended to use a local technician instead? I am in San Jose, CA.

Thank you,
Kevin

Hi Keven,
Welcome to the site. Replacing a power button I would imagine is pretty easy. If you open up the MF2300, you should be able to see how the power button is fixed to the chassis. It might be as easy as a few screws and reattaching the wires. Just a quick online search shows what appears to be a small metal housing around the power switch. I would just take a close look and see how accessible the switch area is. If you don't feel comfortable doing the work yourself, then you can get a price estimate from both CJ or a local technician and then make a comparison.

If you are certain that it is just the power button is malfunctioning, this is a pretty simple 20 minute DIY project.

Thanks Admin!

I couldn't wait and went home during lunch and ticker with MF2300. You were right. I took the switch apart and the copper piece inside was a bit loose. Reset it and the switch is working fine. I guess I should be more "gentle" turning it on and off. I didn't realize how easy it is to knock it loose.

Thank you again!
Kevin

Glad it worked out! Saved you a couple of bucks and if it happens in the future you know how to fix it now.
