Help with 2010 PMR - Power Button Sticks
I've got a 2010 PMR that has a sticky power button. Once I press it in far enough to turn the marker on it often doesn't come out again. I opened the grips and it looks like the whole button housing separates a couple millimeters from the frame and remains pressed against the button sensor (in contrast, the eye button right below it moves just enough to touch the sensor, then returns to its original position resting flush on the frame). Most of the time the gun will turn off again after turning on, then turn on again in an otherwise endless cycle.
Right now if I turn it on then tilt the gun backwards and tap the side of the frame it normally jiggles back out so the gun works. I was wondering:
A) if this has happened to anyone else,
B) what you recommend to solve the problem, and
C) do you know if the button housing (visible only from inside the grips) needs to be able to move, or can it be glued down? i.e. does the button push the whole housing forward normally, or does it have a hollow center that the button pushes through to activate the center, without the housing moving? To me it looks like the first scenario (the whole thing is just one piece, and it needs to be able to move off the frame).
Although I bought the gun new and still have the receipt, it was 6 years ago now and I doubt Proto would do anything about.
Any suggestions are appreciated!
