Well, if you aren't afraid of taking the J3 apart (which probably isn't that bad, TBH), you could take it apart and dab a bit of super glue solvent on the power button switch. I don't know what the solvent would do to the power button, so maybe look up its effects on plastic to make sure it won't dissolve it. That's about the best I have, sorry.

Play nice people.

Taking it apart is probably your best option

Is there a guide for taking it apart?

I haven't seen a disassembly guide on the net yet but I did see this and I may have missed anything else out there. So if you can't find one, there should be others eventually ...

If you manage to get your J3 apart as the guy did in the link above, I'd try brushing a few drops of hot water onto the switch with an artists paintbrush. If that fails, a tiny amount of super glue remover but be careful; if it's acetone-based that can dissolve some plastics. Whatever, make sure it's perfectly dry before you switch it back on.

Good luck. Nobody's perfect and we all make mistakes. If the worst comes to the worst I'm sure a Cowon repair centre can fix it for you. Put it down to experience - nobody died.

I'm a guitar technician/repairman, you'd be surprised at some of the things I have to rectify for people who have tried a bit of do-it-yourself that has gone wrong - sometimes on extremely expensive instruments!

Now, if that was your $4000 Custom Shop Gibson Les Paul you'd screwed up you'd really be crying!

Good recommendation selectortone but I’d say to the OP to test the super glue remover first on an old broken dap or a similar plastic to see the outcome before using it.

@Midwright:There is no guide nor documentation that suggests how to open J3.
Further no one knows whether you can open or put back the opened J3.
I suggest that consult some service person.
Otherwise chances are that you may damage player beyond repair.
