Technical issue: Button doesn't work on A5000

Hi all,

My Sony A5000 has some problem with its central button (the one right in the centre of the rotating dial, see attached picture), which is super hard to successfully click (as any high pressure often ends up activating the nearby buttons, while normal pressure isn't registered.

I presume there's some dust underneath.

Anyone else with a Sony APSC with experience in such issues? Did anyone successfully open and clean their cam?

How easy/difficult is it?

Could there be a different issue?
