fixing broken button (guide)

there are 2 possible reasons why my buttons failed, aluminum powder(due to a case mod) or water. to fix it simply dissemble and pull the buttons out. you can do this for the circle buttons but the numbered button's are attached at the bottom. simply push down on them hard then slide then out of place with a popsicle stick. run them under water, let them dry and blow on the contacts you exposed. then put them back in
if your lucky (like me) they work now,

(sorry, this really should have gone in troubleshooting...)
