Try this, where the button is, there is an arm in the centre which goes to the power switch, raise it a little so there is a gap for a thin peice of card.....This works 100% for me, my button is now better than when I buy it, very sensitive to touch, only need to press power button lightly and it works :D


Exactly what I did. Took a couple of goes myself to get the snuggest fit, but persevere and it'll work. Was worried the back wasnt going
to fit at first though.

I love it when the simple solution is the one that works best.

Not yet. I'll probably use a small piece of plastic from an old card or something.

Well I'm glad to see it's actually a simple fix, although touch wood I won't need it.

I started off using a little piece of plastic but that seem to ping out when i pressed the button. I do think a piece of card from any cardoard box or shoebox is best as it has a bit of 'give'

I've not needed to remove the back off mine yet, but would this trick work on the camera button as well to make it more responsive? Or is it a different design?

Unreal. I thought everyone was over-exaggerating slightly, but the power buttons genuinely better than out of the box, not the easiest thing to do though.

Thanks guys :-)

I've switched to a piece of plastic. Perfect!
