Answers :

\015\012OK...so while I'm sure that hitting the power button w/ a mallet will work...I was having the same issue and felt uncomfortable hitting my very expensive Dyson w/ a mallet. \015\012
Here is what I did to fix the problem\015\012I have a DC17...I am sure instructions will vary by model\015\012Here is what you will need:\015\0121. flat head screw driver\015\0122. Torx -15 screw driver.  \015\012
\015\0121. remove the dust tank \015\0122.Pull the extension tube (handle) out (as if you were going to  vacuum a tight area. \015\0123. there are 2 torx screws that you will have to remove\015\0124. there are 4 retaining clips that you will use the flat head screw driver to unlatch.  \015\0125. After you remove the torx screws and release the 4 retaining clips, the front panel (that houses the power button) can be removed. \015\0126. This will expose the actual power button itself.  Most likely it was jammed.\015\0127. Once you think you have fixed it...test out your fix.\015\0128.  If fixed...reassemble
Honestly, try hitting it on the top with a rubber mallet. The switch sometimes gets jammed. I use this repair all the time and never see a redo for them. Works on about 90% of the Dysons with that same issue.
