If it is the plastic button that is down and won't return, you might try using some silicone lubricant available from hardware or auto parts stores. Silicone is a dielectric so it won't bother the electronics and might free the button.  I wouldn't recommend spraying the pressurized lube into the button recess but rather into the spray can's cap and then using a denuded Q-tip to dab a few drops around the periphery of the button. The carrier of the lubricant may attack plastic but is very volatile so you can let that part evaporate leaving only the silicone.

Battery is needed to complete circuit. Too bad you didn't have the old one.

Will not shut down


If your computer has frozen and can't be shut down properly, you have to force it to power off.
Press and hold the power button for 10 seconds, it will turn off.

Unassemble the fan and see if there is a lot of dirt and dust in there. If the fan is NOT working you need to fix that issue before you do anything else. Does the computer randomly shut down ?

It may be the problem with driver. Your OS may not contain the proper driver.Like in windows service pack 1 do not recognise some camcorders. either upgarde to service pack 2 or download proper driver from manufacturers site
