Unfortunately, I forgot what the part number is for that stupid little power button. I contacted GOG several months ago about the same issue. They said "If it is the stock board or the DYNASTY board, we can replace the button for $15.00 and get you the button that goes on the grip frame for $2.50."

On the other hand, if you don't want to send it in to GOG, you can always do this Membrane switch modification

and that modification should work with any momentary switch (make sure it doesn't lock in place)

Found a Solution

I spent a long time surfing the web trying to find anyone who sold circuit board parts.

http://www.zdspb.com/store/elect_switches.html

There you will find the TT/Cannon board switch - $1.55/ea. Such an awesome find, already ordered my replacement parts and it didn't cost me an arm and a leg.

I would recommend anyone to this site if they every broke their on switch to their Epiphany circuit board.

Awesome find! I knew they were laying around somewhere. I think I'll pick up a few as well.
