Abstract
(EN)
An electronic apparatus (1) simplifies the structure of and facilitates the manufacture of the electronic apparatus having a seesaw-type operation button which is tiltable in a plurality of directions. The electronic apparatus (1) has: an operation button (3); an operation panel (5) provided with a holding portion (15) for holding the operation button (3); and a plurality of switches (35a and 35b) to be pushed down by the operation button (3). The operation button (3) comprises: a plurality of operating portions (31 a and 31 b); a plurality of pressing portions (33a and 33b) respectively provided on the plurality of operating portions (31 a and 31 b) toward the plurality of switches (35a and 35b); and a flat-shaped flexible board portion (41) protruded between the plurality of pressing portions (33a and 33b). The board portion (41) is held by the holding portion (15).

La présente invention permet de simplifier la structure d'un appareil électronique (1) pour faciliter sa production, lorsque l'appareil possède un bouton de fonctionnement de type à bascule, inclinable dans plusieurs directions. L'appareil électronique (1) possède le bouton de fonctionnement (3), un panneau de fonctionnement (5) où se trouve une section de maintien (15) pour maintenir le bouton de fonctionnement (3) et des commutateurs (35a, 35b) enfoncés par le bouton de fonctionnement (3). Le bouton de fonctionnement (3) possède des sections de fonctionnement (31a, 31b), des sections de pression (33a, 33b) prévues individuellement sur les sections de fonctionnement (31a, 31b), vers les commutateurs (35a, 35b), ainsi qu'une section de plaque plate flexible (41) se projetant entre les sections de pression (33a, 33b). La section de plaque (41) est maintenue par la section de maintien (15).
