Need a part number for the power switch/LED assy on a DL180-G6

I'm having a problem powering on the server and have replaced everything and it still won't power up. So as a last hope I would like to replace the switch. However, there is no part listing for it in the manual or anywhere that I could find.

Help please!!!

Thanks,
Sean

I'm actually asking for a co-worker, so I don't know the exact specifics and order in which he did these things but so far.....

He's changed out the system board and power supplies (both p/s have green LEDs).

Power button is orange (standby) and when you press it the server doesn't power up. There are no other indications of any other problems as far as he could tell.

Re: Need a part number for the power switch/LED assy on a DL180-G6

I guess I should have started the message by stating that I am an HP-CE as is my co-worker. So all possible troubleshooting steps have been taken. Things such as removing all PCI cards and taking the server down to bare minimum have been done.

That's why he's looking at the power switch as the issue. Its a shot in the dark but the only thing left that we can think of. Problem is we can't find a part number for it. Its not in the manual, its not on HP Partsurfer, and no one we've talked to can find it either.

Re: Need a part number for the power switch/LED assy on a DL180-G6

This did turn out to be the power button/switch. We never did find a part number but where able to scavage one, with the help of the customer, from a server that was no longer in production.
