Customer Question
I have a Canon...

I have a Canon Power Shot SX10 TS. The ON/OFF button seems to have sunk into the body a bit and it is difficult to turn the camera on.

Technician's Assistant: Did you download all the necessary software to connect your camera to your computer (e.g. Canon EOS Utility)? Is your software the latest version?

It isn't a software problem. The ON/OFF switch doesn't work well.

Technician's Assistant: If you are using a USB cable, are you using the one that came with your camera or an aftermarket one?

I'm not using a USB cable. I've taken perhaps 40,000 (forty-thousand) pictures with the camera before the ON/OFF switch started giving me problems.

Initially, the described symptom almost always point to a failed TACT switch and/or the rubber suspension of the button. However, these are integral parts of the upper right assembly.

And, partial dis-assembly required.

Are you then considering a DIY (do-it-yourself) repair approach? If yes, please click HERE and HERE.
