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. Good luck

I droped my cooplix l25 ,the power button is broken and my cooplix l25 wont turn on

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.

Problem with coolpix 8700 camera

Same problem that would not allow me to take a picture without pressing the LOCK button on my Nikon 8700. Here is how I believe I fixed the problem:

Turn the camera ON.

Press MENU button on your camera to bring up the menu.

Scroll down to SET-UP, open the SET-UP menu by scrolling right.

In the SET-UP menu, scroll all the way down to FUNC (Controls) on page 2/3 , open the FUNC (Controls) menu by scrolling right.

You are now presented with 2 options:FUNC and AE-L, AF-L)

Select the FUNC option by right scrolling.

Choose the 2nd option: i.e the mountain, flower and timer icon (distance, macro and self-timer icon) by right scrolling.

Press the MENU button to get out of the menu.

Attempt to take a picture without pressing LOCK.

Should work! Anyways, it worked for me.

It is a bad ccd it need to be replaced some time you can get lucky by resetting the camera in the setup menu.When you take a picture the image is transmitted throught the ccd and translates the image to the cameras5.gif memory5.gif. It can be fixed. Or you can upgraded. Some places might offer a trade in value on your camera even if it is broke. end of Quote: i hade the same problem this guy knows the way of the lcd's

Casio wont take pictures

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.
