I've made a house, and i want to make it so that i push a secret button, a piston turns OFF (because the piston is ON to block the passage.)

    Have you made any attempt to solve this for yourself? This is literally lesson number one in redstone 101, which says to me that you haven't done any research. You'll find that people are much more responsive if you put some effort into solving your problem first.

1 Answer 1


Make a NOT Gate. This type of simple redstone logic circuit is essential for creating a circuit that turns something OFF when activated, instead of ON. Here is a picture:

Torch Inverter NOT Gate

Just add a button and maybe a repeater for delay, and it will turn off the redstone torch, turning the power OFF.

  • +1. Effort like that on a question like this should not go unrewarded.(In addition to making me realize log faces actually make for a NEAT floor texture)
