I have a Coolpix S60 Nikon camera. I was printing digital pictures at Walmartthis evening, and handed the camera to my friend. He dropped the camera onthe floor (accidently) before he returned to the case for me.I have checked the camera over since I came home and cannot get the camera turnedon. It looks like the "turn-on" button is down further inside the camera than it wasbefore. Could the dropping of the camera caused this to happen? The camera seemsto be completely dead.Send answer XXXXX@XXXXXX.XXXThank you!
Inside the camera there is a control board that is activated by the on button you refer to. When the camera was dropped what has likely happened is that the shock broke the control board of of the mount which is why the button seems further down. The worst part of this is that this drop has not only broken the board off its mount but it would have cracked the board, making it useless. The board can be replaced but the cost of the board and the labor to take the camera aprt and replace the board would be almost as much as the camera would cost to replace.

My son took my camera apart and fixed it. It is now
Thanks for the help and the answer, however, I should
have waited until my son was able to look at my camera.
