How to fix power button spring?

I have had this computer for about 2 years, when suddenly, the power button was found stuck down! I could pry it back out, but upon pressing it in again, no resistance from the spring. Any fixes i can do for this?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

hp's business model consists of selling things that break easily and leads to second purchases. Next time buy Huawei or Lenovo.

Remove the power button board and look at underside of power button. It should have some plastic tabs which give it some elasticity. Where the button touches the power button board you should be able to feel a slight click with your finger when you push on it. This creates enough force together with plastic tabs to push the button out. If there’s anything need to replace, you may just purchase a new one.

If you know few thing about disassembly, you can just go to a local repair spot to get this fixed. Or you can call the technical support at 800-474-6836. If you live outside the US/Canada Region, you may click the following link to get the support number for your region: ++Phone Assist Worldwide++.

Hope this helps.

That's if you can find button itself (not the board). I have one like that m6-aq103dx. Unfortunately there is no part that I can find. I tried to fix it but once you press, it stays down.
