With smooth faced hammer, pound the tiny piece of wire into a flat round itty bitty disc. The dot in the middle of the paper is the copper disc pounded out from the wire in the last photo. If the shape is too elongated, trim it with the wire cutters.

On underside of the buttons, there are conducting contact pads that can wear out. Sometimes they only need to be cleaned. This how to addresses a worn contact pad.
Glue the copper plates over the worn button contacts. In this photo I've glued small copper plates over the contact pads on the underside of two buttons that were worn. Channel up and channel down. Let the glue dry. I've found that a good strong glue is necessary. I used Gorilla Glue. Put everything back together and click away! Happy Surfing!
