So far, no luck. I even tried putting a little piece from a silver
sheet (thin one, for stamp silvering) between the rubber button and
the pins to get a better connection (silver is a good conductor). I'll
keep trying.

I bought it from tuxbrain, 1.3 years ago or so. I don't know how much
warranty I had, I guess I have the form lying around somewhere. Maybe
David can share some more light in this part :)

I'll keep trying, and maybe look for a soldering iron...
