Default Button problems.

Please Login to Remove!

Hey there,

Some days ago I noticed that my Bold's Left Convenience Button, Right-Side 'Lower Volume' Key, and the Top "Mute/Pause" Button weren't responding at all.

I popped the sucker open and I moved the little 'button' pieces around, and sire enough, when I repositioned the 'button' pieces to different button locations, those buttons worked, making the little buggers the culprit; they may have short circuited during a small fall, I don't know.

If anyone here knows how to fix them, or where I can get some replacement parts? Would getting a new middle plate be the best idea?


Where might i be able to get a full colored housing of good quality? If I can get both of these in the same place, that'd be even more convenient.
