I have the same issue...have had the camera 5 years (barely use it..so in as new condition) and went to use it 6 months ago and 1/2 the power switch fell out when I went to turn it on. Then yesterday I turned it on and the whole thing fell out. So I resort to sticking a pencil in the end.
I called HP Canada today and was told the camera was old and they cant replace that part or offer any assistance except upgade to another HP camera at my expense. I realize it's 5 years old but like I mentioned I HARDLY USED IT...so I believe it's poor design by HP.
I will NEVER buy another HP camera because they were not helpful and were only interested in trying to get me to buy another camera.
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.
Main power led to on/off switch is crushed and not enough power gets through.
you have disassemble the camera.
I would think first before tring this.
Remove 3 screws on bottom, 1 in battery compartment, and 1 at very top of usb flap (look good).
Now slide the side piece starting at the usb flap then apply pressure to top and away from unit.
now look for 1 silver and three black screws (facing back and front, look good).
See the big red wire leading to main on off switch if it crushed thats the problem.
I replaced it with a longer piece of wire.
Remember to replace battery door first if it fell off during process.
*TEST NOTE: You can place batteries in and place a penny across the bottom to test before you put it back together.
