Question about Fuji FinePix F450 Digital Camera
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.

You probably didn't connect the ribbon correct. When you take off the back of the camera, there's a ribbon connecting the back to the rest of the camera. The ribbon is fixed with a tiny lock. Check that the lock is in place and locked.
