Re: Droped my camera
Either you take it to a repair shop and ask them if they think they could rig you with an improvised button, or you contact canon and ask them how much would it be to have a new button fitted in.
I would first try to find out if the camera has recieved any more damage when it was dropped. it might not be worth to spend money on fixing just the button.

Well this just does not sound like you are having a good day !! This is nothing more than bad news, You broke your camera and as if this is not bad enough it is going to cost you more to fix it than it will cost to replace it. So just go ahead and buy another camera and save the repair money.
Hi! I strongly suggest that you remove the battery as a first course of action. After removal, press hold the power button for 15secs. to reset the system then install the battery again. Turn the unit on then see how it goes. Hope this helps and thank you for using FIxYa!
Theres a very good chance you are going to have it repaired by a Camera Repair person. I would really need to know the brand and model.
If it is a canon then it will most def. need a new lens assembly. they have metal pins which guide the lens and when they are droped the pins break out of place.
If it is a Nikon or Sony or Casio alot of times I have been able to push the lens straight and it will re-align itself and work perfect again. But that said I wouldnt be too forceful unless the camera is not worth fixing. In that case you really arnt risking anything other than the possibility of fixing it.
an idea passed over my head just now
was the camera droped
was the camera exposed to heat
was the camera exposed to static electricity
was the camera exposed to water or liquids
if these or other things happened to camera
the shutter inside camera has malfunctioned due to the reasons
That lens error msg means that you need to send it in. There is no resetting that you can do to fix that.
Call the repairs center at 800-706-2534 and then keep choosing option 1. Tell them what's going on and that you would like to send it in for repairs. If they ask just lie and tell them you already talked to tech support. LOL
Is it possible that you've gone into M (manual) mode and the shutter speed is fast and a small aperture (large number) been selected? Or has the Exposure compensation been adjusted to be -2? Does it do the same thing in fully automatic mode? It certainly sounds like some setting has been adjusted incorrectly.
