    I offer three solutions:

    1) go to digikey and look up tactile switches. Select SPST-NC and view the 20 different ones they have.

    2) Hire somebody to keep their finger on the button when you're not there to un-press it.

    3) show us the circuit and maybe we can come up with some simple alternative that uses a readily available NO tactile switch.

    Looks like I will go for your suggestion number 2 :)
    An TACT SWITCH SPST-NC IN 12x12mm like in the link, must be an special production - I have the defect switch in front of me but have no productname.... :)
    thanks anyway

    I'm not recommending this site, but it does list a number of such switches:

    http://www.alibaba.com/showroom/normally-closed-tact-switch.html

    I'd try other online retailers. Just because digikey don't have the exact part doesn't make it the last place to search. In short, expand on option 1 :)

    But, wait, what are you paying to hold that button down?
