Dropped ipad and now sleep button is stuck

Hi all,

I dropped my ipad on floor and now the sleep button is stuck and i can't press it anymore.

The aluminum case has changed shape slightly on the top right part by a few mm. Is it worth trying to open it up and maybe fix the case? If i do open it, is there any chance i can close it up again?

it's not an easy task, but you can use the ipad logic board guide.

you can stop after step 8 and try to fix the button.

on the guide page are the needed tools listed - if you use them as shown and if you careful enough, you should be able to close it up again

I did the same thing and have the same problem but don't want to fix it myself. What are my options?
