The simplest way to default your views and settings would be to reset the device, it only takes about 1 minute to do.

As far as the power button its not hard to replace, just 4 screws you take out.

But, sourcing a power button will be tough. Your best bet would be to watch ebay and check daily till you see a broken nuvi 50 being sold for parts, you may be able to pick one up for 15-20$. http://www.ebay.com/sch/i.html?_from=R40&_sacat=0&_nkw=nuvi%2050%20%20for%20parts&rt=nc&LH_ItemCondition=4

Finding the power switch itself for sale, would be quite fortunate.. But most likely you will have to cannibilize a broken Nuvi 50 to get its power switch.

Heres a guide on replacing the power switch.
