No, but others have already addressed that. If you do end up with stick residue you might want to try a good quality residue free contact cleaner. Faced with the same problem I would take it as far apart as I was comfortable with and only direct the contact cleaner at the affected parts. Then give it some days with the battery out to ensure the cleaner had evaporated.
Ok, truthfully I would drop the sticky berry off in the tech lab and tell them to have a good time, on my way to the account manager to order a replacement. One of the perks of working for a large hi-tech organization.
