  • There are three plastic pins protruding up from the main back case that the button fits over. They appear to be slightly melted and mashed to hold it in place. I used a pocket knife to pry it up and off the posts.

Here it is with the back plate of the button pried off.  This exposes a white plastic washer under it. Here it is with the back plate of the button pried off.  This exposes a white plastic washer under it.

The center of the washer has a center locking pin to correctly place it on the back of the button.   The washer is concave and the concave side faces the button,  This gives the button a spring to it so that it will pop back out.

  • After replacing the button, use something (like a low temperature soldering iron) that will melt the tops of the white plastic pegs to secure the button in place.
