The entire motherboard is now accessible.
Take extreme care when working with the motherboard to avoid damaging the device and its components.
A small ribbon cable connects the start and select buttons to the motherboard. It can rip very easily so, do not pull on it.
Lift the motherboard and front plastic cover assembly off of the front case.
Once the front case is removed, the plastic on/off switch will fall out of place.
On the plastic guard, there are two rubber pads which cover the buttons. Remove them.
These pads rest on the motherboard and sometimes stick to it. If they do, peel them off.
With the rubber pads off, you may use your fingers to remove the buttons to clean or replace them.
When returning the buttons to the guard, they have to be put back exactly the way they were pulled out.
