Question about Dyson Vacuums
The actual power button mechanism has failed or become dislodged. It is a tiny little switch inside that purple button that has stopped working, or has slid down a tiny bit, far enough that the purple button isn't engaging it.
I believe you can pop that purple button off with a thin flat-head screwdriver, just be gentle with it. Then you could inspect the power switch and see if it has moved, and if it hasn't then it needs to be replaced. You may want to just pop the power switch off and leave it, then you will have a tiny little power switch like the one in the picture found on the link I will provide below (for the replacement). You may be able to just use this, and forget about putting the purple button back on... so that you don't have to worry if you break it, at least the vacuum will work again. Most likely it is just that the button isn't fully pressing the switch, so after getting that purple cover off you will have access to the real switch!
If you wanted to try replacing the switch yourself (if after popping off the purple button, the little switch in there doesn't work when you press it manually), you can get a new one from here:

The power button as worn out and will need to be replace, i will advice you get a thick paper to patch the button in other to stay on and use for the time being before you replace the power button.
