Onboard Connector Identification: P6

Onboard Connector Identification: P6
by on (#170731)
I've been looking for information on the P6 connector used to run to the power/reset/LED board at the front of the toaster. I have come up short on finding a spec for it.

Does anyone know of a compatible connector that I could source to allow my replacement(actually inline) changes to be done with no hardware modifications?

I was able to successfully figure out P4/5(but have not verified it) as a JST variant and some of their datasheets match all my measurements and visually match, so I'm pretty sure there.

Info I have:
- 5 pins - keyed with pin 1 at 1.5 times other pitch
- pitch from pin 1 to pin 2 = 7.5mm
- pitch for all other pins = 5 mm
- connector is between 6 mm and 6.5 mm high
- connector is between 27.3 mm and 27.7 mm wide
- connector is about 4.2 mm deep
- pins are about 1.1 mm square
(measurements are approximate, my digital calipers are a bit cheap, sometimes randomly adding exactly 1/5th of an inch to measurements - these are double and sanity checked)

There is no manufacturer name on either part, just a single letter('P') and a circular symbol that kinda looks like a 6 sided star, divided into 6 segments in a ring. This symbol is also found on one of my NES systems on the power and reset switches, still no company name. Other NES have Mitsumi switches, but they don't seem to be the same company.

Let me know if any other information will help.

Thanks for any help or direction.

Bonus question: The Famicon schematics reference P3, what is that used for? (It does not appear on the NES)

P6 is similar to, but not the same as, the Molex 5289 connector family.

It's the right pin size and pin spacing, but missing the plastic keys and also too thick.


In the famicom, P3 is a soldered-on ribbon cable to the RF modulator and power regulator. http://jpx72.detailne.sk/modd_files/fc/avmod.htmhttps://plus.google.com/photos/10178053 ... 0279849730

I might try to get my hands on one anyway and see if it will work in place. The pins are exactly the right size and spacing. I'll do some measurements when I have a chance and see. The hardware I am thinking of making could get away with just having pins directly on the board that the existing wire plugs into, and that might be enough for my design. Still, I would rather have the proper connector.

Still don't know what company that logo is for, I'm sure that would help more.

I'm still searching online, if anyone has any hints or suggestions, I am quite willing to put in the time searching. (Added to the hours I've spent already.)
