ANTEC 300 Power button horrible

Last response: in Components

I am using an Antec 300 for a recent build

One thing that greatly annoys me is that almost everytime i push the on button, it gets stuck 'in' and i have to smack the top of my front panel to get it to 'spring back'

I've tried the insides with compressed air and nothing helps.

Does anybody know how i can overcome this?

thanks in advance

hmm sounds weird I own three antec 300's and none of them had this problem. You might want so see if something is obstructing the button or maybe try using a plastic safe lubricant very lightly on the area.

If its a new case and the switch is that annoying you mights want to just RMA it. Hope you can get it fixed and good luck.

If you can't get Antec to send you a replacement switch, I'd RMA the case back to the retailer you bought it from with the explanation as to what is wrong.

thanks for the replies guys,

I dont think its worth returning and its only a minor problem.

I will use some plastic safe lubricant on the inside of the switch and hopefully that will fix the problem.

I'm probably going to buy an Antec DF-85 at the end of the year for better cooling/cable management/features etc.
