What's the dimensions of those switches? Have you managed to find them online? I have 2 faulty ones on my 2005 Extreme 3D Pro

I have just recently changed 6 of them, which shown at step 8 at this guide. Now it works as good as new.

You can find them as “tact switch” (or tactile switch) at online for very cheap prices. Dimensions are milimeter, 6x6 mm and button height is 4.3 mm. i think these are shortest of 6x6 button family.

Search at Google for “6x6x4 tact switch”. For referance:

Is there anywhere I can get the logic board only. Thanks.

@mikejt86 Thank you for posting this. I have two bad switches, #7 & #12 not working. I have disassembled it to test and strangely find no switching action on any of the switches with my multimeter in continuity mode. They test as if pressing the switch does nothing, which seems odd. Did you test your switches before replacing them? I am more curious than anything at this point.
