Re: Broken Power Button

There's usually some sort of contact (often a button or just a little bubble looking thing) under it. Can you reach it with something like a Q-tip?

I have a canon Power Shot S50. The mechanical slider that covers the lens is loose. When I open it, it doesn't power up the camera. I suspect there is a switch underneath the cover is broken.

The open door button on a circuit board is usually micro. A loose cover will likely not make contact with this small switch. Take the cover off and tighten the screws on the inside. Try to locate the switch to inspect if it has been wore off, broken, or missing even.

Power button

[I just posted this in another thread. I hope it helps.] My wife brought this camera home from work for me to look at. It had the sunken/broken power button problem.  The T-shaped hinge was broken where it connects to the power button section. I couldn't see any way to glue or repair it that would be strong enough so I came up with an alternate fix. 
The actual power switch is below the broken button, just a touch below the "ON/OFF" text. I decided to make a button that pushed the switch directly rather than pivoting like the original. 
I needed a push-button shaped object with a shoulder on it (so it wouldn't fall through the hole I was going to drill in the back). I ended up using a small green LED (3mm size I think). I drilled a hole big enough for it to move but not so big it would fall through. I cut the leads off flush with the body and sanded them flat. The hole I drilled lines up with the little bump on the original plastic switch piece. 
So I put the LED in place, the original plastic piece over it and added a little bit of self adhesive felt (that you would stick on the bottom of something to protect your furniture) at the top where the silver button is (just to keep the original button from sinking inward). I put the back on the camera and checked that the power button clicked nicely. It did so I put the camera back together and it's as good as new.  
And it has a snazzy green power button now. 
So if you are handy you can probably fix the camera yourself. 
Good luck - Greg

Fuji F650 won't turn on

Check the underside of the battery door. There should be an "L" shaped tab which presses on the shut-off switch. These are often broken off when closing the compartment. If it's broken off, you can defeat the switch by stuffing a piece of paper in it, and then closing the door (with battery installed). If the tab's not broken, you're probably in need of the service department.
