Having a baby requires some good tools, specifically a white noise machine and a baby monitor. Imagine the chances of both breaking in the same week. The manufacturers told me that they would not repair and I could not return so the only hope was to buy new ones (not happening).
Cake. I used my soldering station to reconnect the buttons that had come unattached. The noise machine took me about five minutes. The baby monitor took two tries; about 10 minutes. This was my first time soldering but clearly if I (a noob) can figure it out, anyone can do it.
Make sure you get a good flow from the solder and fully connect the part to the metal on the board. I was a bit stingy the first time around but once I tested the baby monitor and realized it still wasn't fixed, I gave it another shot of solder and I was good to go.
