Question about HP Photosmart M425 Digital Camera
The little chrome power button to switch on the camera suddenly lost its springyness and would no longer switch on the camera.
On opening the camera up i noticed its on a plastic hinge that had snapped.I have tried to glue it but not sure if it will work and if so how long it will last.
Is there anywhere i can order the button from as i can easily replace it myself ? or anyother solutions would be appreciated as the camera still works.
I had the same problem, and just made a hole like you said. I took of the back panel, mark with a felt tip pen the place where the hinged button make contact, and took a very small screw driver, the same I used to remove the camera tiny screews, put the screewdriver on fire for some seconds and used it to melt the plastic. the result was a perfect rounded hole on the exact place. Now i turn the camera on with anything that I can push in that little hole.

Sure it can, but there's no sense, cause cost of replacement is higher than new camera, althought you can do it in another way, just drill small hole (diameter 2mm) on the bottom of the slash on the on/off caption under the on/off button, than you can use e.g. toothpick to turn it on.
