When one or all of the buttons stop working on a device, it can be a frightening thing. Use this guide to help.

    • Four round, plastic plugs are located on the back of the device.

    • Using a metal spudger, carefully pry up the plastic covers.

    • The covers are all glued on, so be careful not to scar the casing when prying them off. If possible, use a spudger or plastic opening tool to remove them.

    hi i just finished prying apart those round buttons. it is very important to know if you dont want to mangle the button trying to pry it loose. if your looking down at the four buttons the inside part of all the four round circles is where you put a thin small tool, that is where the opening is to eventually pull up the whole thing without having to mangle the circle. so if your looking at the four circles the opening will be in the part of circle where all rounds face each other inward i hope this helps

    Note that the torx plus is a 5 star tool, and was the size 15 for me. Make sure you don't purchase the common 6 sided star tool.

    My experience required a number 15 torx plus head.

    This was a 5 sided star, not a 6 sided star.

    It's NOT torx plus. It's torx SECURITY. Torx Plus is designed for high torque situations. The bit with the hole in the middle is Torx Security.

    Disappointed the Pro Tech Toolkit didn’t include the tip I needed. However I would like to know how to buy a 1.8 tip. The link you give in the list of tools needed takes me to a product on Amazon which includes 10, 15, 20 tips. I’d assume a 1.8 cm would be an 18?

    1,8 cm is the length of the screw. Security Torx f a center pin, so you need a tip with a corresponding hole. Try 10, 15 or 20.
