On/off switch failing. difficult to turn on

Very difficult to turn on my HP pavilion notebook. Must push on/off button way down and hold it there to start unit. Each session is getting more difficult. Can the switch be sprayed with tuner cleaner or is it membrane protected. Don't see any easy way to take cover off.

My HP Pavilion dv5215us PC Notebook will not turn on. The screen stays blank. Also it will not turn on when the battery is removed and the charger is still plugged into the PC. What is my problem?

Try removeing the battery, memory and harddrive.
If you can get to the CMOS battery, unplug it as well.
Open the lid and push and hold the start button for 30 seconds.
Re-install the removed items and power up unit.
