After I accidentally dropped my camera, the power button fell out and went missing....camera is still fully functional and if I press the areas to turn the camera on and take pictures (with a fine tipped utensil) the underlying areas work. Is there anywhere that could replace the button, or where I could buy a new button without having to pay the equivalent price of the camera itself?

Re: power button gone
The best help u can get is from the service center of the camera. else do one thing. as am from india i dont know what place is the HUB to buy any kind of electronics items near your place. if u go to that kind of place where all kinds of electronics goods like computers, digicams, electronic components, etc etc... there they would take the power button from any other old camera and fix it in yours. but one thing is u dont need to prefer for a new button. old one will work fine. even inn service center they have old buttons. so try in service center first. then try in shops.

Accidental deletion always happens nowadays. Good news is that files deleted from digital camera memory card or computer hard disk is still recoverable.
You need to rely on some photo recovery software to recover them. Programs like Asoftech Photo Recovery is very powerful photo recovery tool. download from site below Data Recovery Software Free Download
Open the battery door , there should be a small button ( right next to SD Memory card on my IXUS 60 ) It tells the camera when door is open & disables power to the camera .Its very weakly made & is responsible for alot of people's problems I have seen so far,including myself !!
The one on my IXUS 60 just magically fell out and landed down the drain whilst I was just changing a battery , and the camera ceased to function. With the button itself gone the copper wire terminals were visible. I used a small pair of scissors and pushed them together and it instantly resumed working, & still does.
I'd recommend using a piece of aluminium foil , or any other conductive material folded up and inserted into the cavity to connect all the copper prongs together.
Im not going to tell you to pull your button out, BUT, Upon seeing inside it, I'm confident that even when still intact , it'd be really easy for it to malfunction....
The E18 error is fairly common. Usually it's sand or grit interfering with the lens extension mechanism. Or the camera's been dropped with the lens extended. Or the camera has been powered on, but the lens had been blocked preventing its extension.
Here's some things that you can do to try to correct it. They only seem to work for about 50% of lens errors, but they're worth a try:
