Magnet harming electronics?

I used a magnet to keep my lid closed on my box. Do you guys know if it would have any effect on my microswitches or PCB? I know it messed my TV up…haha
There is plastic covering all corners of the magnet and they will be about 3-4" away from the switches. ANy idea?

What kind of magnet is it? Shouldn’t affect the operation of your stick.

Just a simple latch magnet…I just said screw it and put everything together…stick is workin great :slight_smile:

If you’re dealing with neodymium rare earth magnets…

But you should be fine.
