My iaudio7's been broken for a while now. The power slider button is broken (frictionless) and the menu button is also broken. I decided to take it apart and try to repair myself, as the repair shop up in Glasgow (or wherever it is) charges something like a £20 inspection fee for diagnosis alone.
For the power button, the tiny metal latch has broken off, but I don't have small enough soldering iron to be able to solder it back on. Are there any other fixes (no matter how short term) for this?
It speaks to the laptop fine, although when I've tried to turn it on with the screwdriver, it powers up and then goes all distorted.
