Tip & How-To about Fuji FinePix S1000FD Digital Camera
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).
