My volume decrease button was not working. I disassembled per these instructions, blew out the device with compressed air and then contact cleaner and reassembled per the reverse instructions. The screws in step 9 were slightly different (the same holes were there, but the presence/absence of screws was slightly different). I am now happily listening to my iHome right now. Thank you for posting this!!!
