Question about Cameras
I hate to be the messenger of tough news, but this is probably either a switch problem or ribbon connector. Since resetting didn't help, it's going to be, in all liklihood, a hardware problem.
The problem with the switch, is that it's a sealed push button type contact, and the plastic switch pin could be broken, or the contacts faulty. In this case, the switch board or pad has to be replaced.
If the problem is with a slightly loose ribbon connector, going from the switch plate to the main board, you can try to disconnect and reconnect them.
You might take it by a camera repair shop just to get a second opinion, but get an estimate if you elect to have it repaired, as often it's just better to buy a new one.
Good luck, hope this helps, and thanks for using FixYa.
