Power won't come on SX260

My sx260 is dead. The power started coming on erratically for a few days, and has now stopped coming on at all, either by holding the power button or the play button down.

I think it's probably related to opening and closing the battery door a few million times. The power isn't supposed to come on with the battery door open. I think it's still under warranty, so I can send it back to Canon for repair.

But has anyone been able to bypass the battery door open sensor? Thanks.

Thanks for the link. That's interesting, but doesn't work on the sx260. I'll need to do a hardware hack, or send the camera to Canon, since it's still under warranty. I'll think I'll see if Canon will fix it first.
