Hi folks,

I have a BA23 with a non-functioning reset button. Any idea of a form-factor replacement may be available? FWIW, it's the 6 button variety.

Are you really sure that the reset button doesn't work? There are two DIP switches on the circuit board that the buttons are mounted on. One of those disables the reset button.

I am just starting my 11/73 resurrection, I have found that exercising the switches works wonders. In my case, they work fine I just need to replace the neon bulb in the power switch (hoping to replace with an orange LED) and the power button (it's cracked in the middle).

Try working them, and letting them snap out (from the held-in position).
