Take a cotton swab (Q-Tip) dampened with some isopropyl alcohol wipe the strap release button seam. That should soften the junk thats jamming the release. It may take a few attempts to get the strap off once off do the same thing on the other side and use some can'ed air to push out the junk.

Dan tried it with glass cleaner, after some days with patience it worked because of that, not the isopropyl alcohol. l don't know why, anyway the band is off:-)
