I have the exact same problem with my camera, the on & off switch came off. but I did use the remote that comes with the camera, and that worked for a little while. I also called alot of camera shops and also I called JVC and they said it would be cheaper to buy another camera then to fix it. So if anyone finds anything else out, please let me know. Thanks Mary
EASY JVC DVM70 CONTROL BUTTON DIY REPAIR! I know this thread started in 2002, and the last post is in 2008, but in case anyone cares (since you can get these NICE digital cameras on ebay for about $15 or $20, I posted this anyway. (I pulled mine off the shelf and gave it to my 8 year old to make "animation" with since it has that feature built-in... My control button wasn't working correctly, so I "hit" it a little harder than I should have an it kinda "popped-off." I tried the trick mentioned early in this thread, with great success: I put the button and the control ring on the camera, and held it in place with a strip of surgical tape. I removed the screw on the upper hinge to allow the door to open almost 90 degrees. I CAREFULLY removed the black, plastic protective cover from the inside of the door, being careful not to damage the electronic ribbon cables. I used a 1/16th" drill bit to put a 1/8th" deep hole in the "center" of the 5 plastic "tips". I put a drop of super-glue in the hole, and then put in a 1/16" x 1/8th sheet screw. I put the black plastic cover back on, and reinstalled the upper screw in the hinge. I still have a remote for this unit, so I am not using the center button for the control feature any more than I have to, as I don't want it to come off again. Works fine, now! Good Luck!
