Power button broke

My camera was fine and working great one minute then out of nowhere the power button broke. It is almost as if it is stuck down and wont come back up.
Is there anything I can do to fix this?

    I was using my DSC-S600 and the next minute it wouldn't work. It was like the power button was stuck. Any solutions?

    Yes....same problem....took the camera apart because of course the warranty expired the day before!

    Anyway, the cheap plastic mechanism is cracked in half and therefore will not apply enough pressure to turn on/off.



    Service centers quited me 150 to fix! Seriously....it is a broken plastic piece that I jsut need and I can fix myself....



    where can I find the part??



    :) Thanks -Sue

If you have a memory card in the camera, take it out before turning the camera on

A Work Around For Dealing With a Broken Power Switch


Others have had this same problem, the plastic power on/off slider switch eventually breaks (absolutely ridiculous that it happens at all, and I treated mine very gently).

I was going to throw mine out, then remembered that you can power the camera on by holding down the green arrow button (picture viewing button) on the back for two or three seconds. Unfortunately that doesn't seem to work to turn it off, so you just have to set it to power off after two minutes.

Not a great solution, but better than throwing it away, and better than wasting money to have it repaired (if that's even possible).

Power button will not work - it did not pop up when depressed. I removed battery and card and re-inserted but button is still stuck. Any suggestions?


Found out that if battery needs charging, camera will not turn on at all. I guess I had a senior moment. Button was not stuck just no power to turn on camera. After charging battery everything is fine.

My samsung digital L730 wont turn on


Just fixed mine, if the lens is out that's the problem we had, it was jammed and not allowing it to switch on, we gently pushed it back in, then switched on, the lens came out a bit then jammed, pushed it in again & kept doing it until it cleared the blockage.  
Works fine now!  
Hope it works for yo

Camera will not power on as if battery is dead ,(not battery )was working fine


Some cameras have a similar issue when the on off button gets stuck down caused by dirt or small sand particals tap on palm of hand in all axis and a cleaning with small amount of isopropal alcohol sometimes helps symptoms sound like need pro care/repair

Won't stay turned on


Since mine was only a day or two old, I took it back to the store and got it replaced. Since then, it's been fine. Hope you have the same option.

Samsung Digimax V4 Power Consumption


I had similar symptoms as well until it finally died: 1) First started eating batteries like crazy, especially standard AA and rechargeables. The CRV3 seemed to work a bit longer. 2) One day out of nowhere the autofocus stopped working. I replaced the batteries and it worked again for 10 shots. Then the autofocus stopped working and battery died (with the lens stuck open). Pressing power, the LCD backlight flashes on, the LED in the view finder blinks, and the lens motor makes noise. Then nothing just stuck open. 3) Again new batteries and was able to close lens, take a few pictures and dead again with lens stuck open - same problem in 2. 4) Replaced the batteries a couple times and was able to get a shot or two off, and now its complete stuck open, even with brand new batteries - with same problem in 2 it just won't turn on. I finally sent it to Samsung the week of Christmas. I called Friday 1/7/05 to check and had to leave a voicemail. They called back Monday 1/10/05 to let me know they recieved it and that I should call back Thursday to check its status.

Optio 450 Lens Stuck Problem


the lens cover gets stuck sometimes. It just needs a gentle touch and it opens up. Only happened once to me. In my case it happened after my daughter held onto the camera with her finger on the lens cover.
