Emac power button broken

My eMac's button has stopped working - I can try and push the button and nothing happens. It's definitely the button that's gone as when I persevere and push hard in different parts of the button sometimes it will turn on. But that's not a great way to spend 10 mins every time I want to turn the machine on.

I don't particularly fancy taking it to a shop, so was wandering if anyone else had come across this problem and what you did to solve it!

I haven't seen this myself but apparently Apple expects it because the procedure is covered in the take-apart manual. Try a search on goggle for e-mac take-apart manual.

what i think it is only the cable has gone loose.
if you open the case (open 9 screw on case) when you are lifting the case a cable will come in the way it is the cable to the button. it get pulged in the back of the button check weather its loose or not.

Mac OSX is the bomb :bomb:
