I purchased a factory refurbished stylus 300 new in the box bought a new battery and memory card. the only way to turn it on is pushing the power button on the back. opening the front cover does nothing, reading on the web this has been a problem with this camera. Has anyone figured out how to fix it. I don't want to spend any more money on this camera. I pulled of the front slider and messed around with the black swith but this does nothing.

This is a very very common problem with this (and other) models. The problem is a broken on/off switch on the main board. Olympus ask a fortune to replace it, and refuce to supply this switch as spare part.

If anybody know where to get these switches, I should like to know. I have 6 Stylus300´s with this problem.
