      • There may be a sticker covering one, or more, of the screws. Simply remove the it before the screws.

    • Flip the console on its feet and carefully lift the top casing from the back (where the AV/S and power ports are).

      • To avoid damage, do not completely remove the top case. There is a small circuit board--which houses two LEDs-- connected to the main circuit board.

    • Using your fingers (or precision tweezers), carefully pinch the button tabs and push through to the other side.

Conclusion

To reassemble your device, follow these instructions in reverse order.

If the problem persists after the buttons are replaced, it may be a circuit board issue. If so, please visit our guide for circuit board replacement at Retro-Bit Retro Duo Circuit Board Replacement
