The buttons are poor quality they were not a robust design but the problem is more were the connections from the button end that cause the problems. Again just a bad solder joint on the wires. A new button is cheap enough but once you put heat near them they fall apart and are tricky to get back into the case without them breaking again.
I sorted mine just by luck as I broke the new button and the old button trying to put it back together … just by chance I had an old torch with a rubber press button almost the same and that is what I used. I try not to look at my wiring mess when I replace the battery but I never had a problem with it since.

It does not matter how slowly you go as long as you do not stop. What you plant now, you will harvest later.
Don't think radionics will even talk to you unless you spend over a certain amount they are the most ignorant unhelpful people to buy from... no customer skills. A lot of the time you have to buy packs of the items you want but a better way is to buy the button on ebay it will be the correct one to use.
Might want more than one just in-case but a good electronics guy should have no issue sorting the repair.
Yeh they hand you the part purchase form … fill that in a right pain in the ass. Then I think you have to buy or spend more than you want as a rule I avoid them. I don't get the feeling they like dealing with the public and only want trade business.
Anyway I don't think they do the correct button not saying the others would not work but room inside the case is limited.
