Hopefully this is not a duplicate post as I lost the previose post I spent so long writing when I hit Post Solution.
I had the same issue with mine and finally lost the button. I could not find a way to get it to stay in (and I'm very good a figuring things out like that). I'm pretty sure something broke and left no sign.
I called JVC when it happened back in 2007 but there was no recall on this. The tech I talked to could not find the part and told me it was not available. Two years later I decided to try again and this time talked to a tech lady that was very open about how and what she was looking at to find the part. When she could not find it, she emailed me a parts diagram (exploded view) of every component set that makes up the camera. Turns out that the switch is not mentioned anywhere in the parts list that correlates with the diagrams because it;s part of an assembly that has do be replaced as a whole. This is more info to back up my thinking that the switch can not be put back in place once it pops out. After we both looked at it for a while I found it as the exploded view is not showing that portion of the handle in full view. I forget the name of the assembly but I think it said something like Power(rec?) board IDK. Either way it sounded more of an internal thing but that was it. I will be ordering this part this year so I will have to dig up all that info again. The process to replace this switch assembly is very complex and requires that the handle/tape housing be removed from the camera. Then it all has to be taken apart with tons of micro screws and small parts. No unsoldering that I could see (most every mini board disconnects with mini plugs. Let me know if you want more info once I order this part. I think it was around $150 but I hope it is still available.

You can get another button

    Great comment from an expert. Where does one get the button? To say you can get the button and not reference where it can be had is no solution at all. PP just said it was part of an assembly.

I have toshiba equium a100-338 and the power button will not work

The cable (Wire) stays attached to the Power Button Board,

No, I'm wrong? The Flat Flex Cable (FFC) does come out of a ZIF connector on the Power Button Board?
You may wind up buying the Power Button Board, and Flat Flex Cable, then.

Or you may find a 'Mom and Pop' computer store, that can repair the cable.

Bissell 5770 vacuum power won't stay on. The power will only stay on if you hold down the button the whole time.

I just had this happen to me. I took the top part of the vacuum off, unscrewed all of the screws from the top piece and opened it just enough to pop off the plastic red power button. Then I pressed the switch mechanism up and down a few times to reset it and put it back together. Turns out it didn't actually go bad.

Brush will not spin

- Look for the reset button on the side of the brushbar housing - there should be a red sticker and a red button. Push it once. It's not gonna stay depressed, it's gonna pop right out - that's normal.

- Step on the red pedal on the back

- Turn the machine on with the red power button

- Press the gray button next to the red power button - this is the ON/OFF switch for the brushbar

- If it still isn't spinning, open it up and make sure nothing is blocking it and withholding it from spinning

- For further troubleshooting assistance call the Dyson helpline, they know what they're doing

JVC Gr HD1 power/record button fell off and tape stuck inside

I have a solution posted on replacing the button in another Question but as far as your question; If you still have the button you can pop it back in (push in and hold tight) and move it to the position to turn it on. Once it's on you don't have to hold it in to keep the camera on. Only switching it to the off position will turn it off. Let me know if you lost the button and I can give you a work around for that (even if you still have the button and are jamming it in there but it's not working my workaround could help).

This just plain shouldn't happen. Call Fuji while your warranty is in effect, and have them fix or replace it.
