Hp M525 repair needed

\015 Hi, \015\012My on/off button sunk in, and I can't turn it on now. Do you do these kinds of repairs?\015\012\015\012Thanks,\015\012Lisa Guia\015\[email protected]\015

Answers :

My wife brought this camera home from work for me to look at. It had the sunken/broken power button problem.  The T-shaped hinge was broken where it connects to the power button section. I couldn't see any way to glue or repair it that would be strong enough so I came up with an alternate fix.\015\012
\015\012The actual power switch is below the broken button, just a touch below the "ON/OFF" text. I decided to make a button that pushed the switch directly rather than pivoting like the original.\015\012
\015\012I needed a push-button shaped object with a shoulder on it (so it wouldn't fall through the hole I was going to drill in the back). I ended up using a small green LED (3mm size I think). I drilled a hole big enough for it to move but not so big it would fall through. I cut the leads off flush with the body and sanded them flat. The hole I drilled lines up with the little bump on the original plastic switch piece.\015\012
\015\012So I put the LED in place, the original plastic piece over it and added a little bit of self adhesive felt (that you would stick on the bottom of something to protect your furniture) at the top where the silver button is (just to keep the original button from sinking inward). I put the back on the camera and checked that the power button clicked nicely. It did so I put the camera back together and it's as good as new. \015\012
\015\012And it has a snazzy green power button now.\015\012
\015\012So if you are handy you can probably fix the camera yourself.\015\012
\015\012Good luck - Greg
Unscrew 6 silver screws (incl 1 under usb port and 2 inside battery compartment- do not touch door screws) with a small magnetized phillip screw driver. Slide the dark L shape rim with the picture shooting buttons 1/16 in away from the hand strap to unhook the case locks and lift it out - be careful not to break the 2 locking hooks at the center near the flash and the on/off button. Lift the front cover away from the lens. Unscrew 1 silver screw inside and 3 black screws that hold the assembled camera and lift it out the back cover. The swinging on/off button can be examined now. The toggle small round button on the motherboard is unlikely to get damaged. Most likely the T shape hanging button might drop out of its housing due to a damaged hook most likely bent. Remove the back cover, use a small solder gun to slightly heat the hook and straighten it back. Re-assemble in a reverse instruction. This should restore the power button function. Good luck.

I have a Panasonic PVGS19 Mini DV Camcorder. The problem is the flip screen. Will not work when fully open. There is a picture when it is opened at about 1/4 of the way. Also, when opened and flipped over ( self portrait mode) and closed the image is upside down. Thinking it is a mechanical connection between the camera and the LCD that either need some cleaning or repair. Can I do this myself? Not cost affective to have repaired by service, I am sure.
