Hi,

I own a fractal design XL r2 case since 2012. (This one : https://www.fractal-design.com/products/cases/define/define-xl-r2/black-pearl/ )

From some weeks, when I hit the power button, i need to hit twice to get it to boost the computer.
Normally I would have only to hit it once, but from those weeks, i sometimes notice that the first hit on the button does nothing (the led showing it's on remains out). When a second or like today a third hit on the button finally works, the led correctly becomes blue.

When it starts, it works perfectly. I never have had my computer to shut off unexpectedly (outside of a power failure of course...).

Do you know what could be the reason that sometimes the "on" button would not work?

Thanks for the help,

You can test by connecting the Reset wire to the PWR connector and use the Reset button as Power button for a while, if it works fine your Power button is faulty (mechanically).
