SOURCE: Yaesu Ft-50 hard to turn on
The rubber power button is impregnated with carbon and when pressed, it makes contact with two points on the printed circuit board, turning on the radio. This button eventually wears out and needs to be replaced, which is a rather easy process.
I've performed the operation four times - takes about 15 minutes. The button is available from Yaesu.
I also tried "repair kits" for these buttons which are supposed to replace the conductive surface. Both times, they failed again within a couple of weeks.
The upside is the new button is not as quite as tall as the original and requires depressing it below the surface of the case to switch, which prevents accidently turning off the radio.
Good luck, and 73
