Yes you can. However! ! I DO NOT recommend it. It is not good on the hard drive to shut the system down that way. I would order a new ribbon cable for the power button. They are not hard to replace and only a few screws holding the cover down to gain access to what you need.

Had my finepix f450 apart and now that its back together the on/off power switch wont work but it'll power on on cradle it. so it must be something i did putting it back together.any ideas

OK - so I've taken mine apart to see what may be causing this. The problem is most likely that you put the camera back together with the power switch set to off. In this position the metal slider that activates the power switch touches the fragile plastic tongue of the actual power switch and will sheer it off when the case is pressed together. However, the slider won't touch it when the camera power switch is moved to its 'on' position during re-assembly.There is no easy fix other than to either replace the module containing the switch or if you're a tinkerer de-solder and disassemble the switch and refashion the tongue that depresses the micro-switch by using maybe a piece of nylon from a small tie string (Ty-wrap) or alike. It's a fairly small switch, however. Finally, perhaps you could obtain a replacement switch from the manufacturer or an electronics supplier. By default, this switch will be on so removing it from the cradle should turn the camera on and inserting into the cradle should turn it off. So, if you can find a free or cheap cradle connector you could use it as a makeshift power switch or you can always bring the cradle along to turn it on - the camera's power timeout will then turn it off automatically ;) Hope this helps.

Sound but no picture!

I had thesame problem and I took off the battery, disconnected all power to the unit, and then unscrewed all the screws located under each grey circle as well as the one under the "warranty void if removed' sticker. There I found the ribbon that went to the monitor had been pulled from its place from what appeared to be twisting the screen in the wrong direction. Upon carefully lifting the motherboard I found the slot the ribbon went into, worked it back into the slot, put all back together and it works fine. Good luck!

Beeping sound when powering unit on

Have you simply pushed the carriage back to the middle? If it is like the ML100 (it looks the same) you can just push it over ...with the pwoer off. Then put in you new ribbon. And this time, when you turn it on, it is the new ribbon that hits a switch on the underside of the keyboard, located to the upper left. If you do not have a ribbon installed, it will travel all the way to the left, and beep, beep, beep, beep. ,,,, The switch is hit with the ribbon housing.

Onceturned on, the green light goes on, the touch screen flashes white, then it all turns off.

You might only have a loosen screen ribbon cable.

If not careful while taking out the top screen ribbon you can damage it causing blank screens and finally the DS wont work.

The solution to a broken top screen ribbon is to replace the whole screen in DS lite or buy the ribbon cable in the DS fat and replace.

If the broken top screen ribbon is caused by broken hinge then you should replace the shell also to avoid other broken screen.
