LED Power indicator button stuck

Hi!

The button to activate the LED power indicator on the side is stuck down, I can't figure out how to un-depress it.

Does anyone know how to achieve this?

Thanks in advance.

Is it flush when you try pushing the back of the button (without the LED board being there)?

No, the button doesn't seem to move when it's pushed. The way it sits depressed is really weird.

It sounds like something like a liquid spill or similar event may have caused residual liquid to get in there and dry - can you force the button out with something like a screwdriver?

Thanks! That did it, I wasn't sure if it was supposed to pop out or not but it did and I gave it a clean and it's all working again. Thanks :)

That's great to hear! And yep, that piece is totally made to pop out.
