Question about Canon PowerShot A70 Digital Camera

Repost of A70 Mode Switch Problem

This is a repost of the A70 Mode Switch Problem, as it is marked as solved when there is no solution. I originally thought my camera was dead. I replaced with a newly charged set of batteries and still dead. Finally I took the camera apart to have a look. In the mean time I discovered that the charger had a 2 cell/4 cell switch, and only 2 batteries were charged. On reassembly, my mode switch stopped working. I disassembled again and found a broken lever on the mode microswitch. Finally located a new switch, replaced it and reassembled. It worked for one switch operation, then the same problem. I took the camera apart again, and again the switch lever was broken. Are there any reassembly tips or tricks to reassemble the camera ? Also are there any more sources for a new switch ?

    The previous solution is wrong !!
    After spending a lot of time scoping out the switch and lever positions. I have determined the proper position for the mode lever on the cover is the Camera position. Also on assembly of the back cover, go slow, and keep wiggling everything around. Slightly wiggle the mode lever back and forth, as the very delicate microswitch button/lever has to position itself correctly within the mode switch lever assembly. Do not just snap the lever back and forth between camera and review mode until you are sure everything is in position, or You will almost certainly break the micoswitch.
    I installed the back with the Camera fired up, so I could tell if the mode switch was workin.

    Anyway, Now the Camera is working !!

Make sure that the mode switch on the cover is in the playback position. Unfortunately, I don't have a source for new switches.
