A comment for anyone wanting to clean the metal contacts to improve keypad response, make sure you spray iso alcohol onto a lint free cloth and wipe the contacts, not onto the device itself and definitely not onto the LCD screen, as it can leave a marl on the screen. Luckily it evaporated eventually but only after 48hrs...

Use the plastic opening tool to separate the top part of the backplate. The plastic clips at the top require slightly more force to separate. The plastic clips at the top require slightly more force to separate.
