Okay, so recently I took out my power and eject buttons and painted them white, but now they won't function properly. The eject sometimes works, but it feels like it gets jammed down. Power doesn't work very much at all. Do you think that because I painted them, they got significantly thicker to the point that they rub? I think I'll have to sand down some of the plastic ring around the eject and sand the sides of the power I guess.

And they were so pretty too dry.gif

laugh.gif This happened to me once. Basically you probably coated the buttons too much. It was so annoying for me because it was a case I had done for a friend and everything else came out perfect. I basically stripped the paint off the buttons and spray it only a single layer of paint. That worked for me in that situation, at least. Good luck. biggrin.gif

wow...how many coats did you do? Did you lay it real heavy? I painted mine and they work fine I put 3 very lite coats on. Any way try sanding the sides of the buttons. I would try this before I sanded the holes.

Thanks. I'll just sand the edges and see how that works.
