    Squeezebox Boom Rotary Encoder

    My trusty desktop Boom has developed a fault with the rotary encoder used for menu navigation volume etc. The rotary element works fine, but the push button element has collapsed and no longer responds. It's lost it's 'spring' and even pushing and pulling on it fails to work.

    Does anyone know the manufacturer / model of this part?

    It's a 6mm shaft, but it's very short, around 8mm long and I guess is 20 pulses / revolution as it's indexed with 20 position steps.

    The next step will be to remove it to see if there's any details on the reverse of it, unless anyone has any insight they can offer!

    Thanks,

    Andy.

    Phillipe,

    That's incredibly kind of you, please allow me to cover postage costs and whatever you want for the encoder. If you can PM me with a Paypal or similar and how much you want I'll be happy to pay and let you have my address.

    Andy.

    The Boom lives on!

    Thanks to Philippe, my boom has had an encoder transplant and is now back in pride of place on my desk!

    What a great community this is!
