Step 23. You should not be using pointed tweezers here. Or on any of the ribbon cables. They put pressure on the tip only only and could damage across tracks on the ribbon cable. Small long nose pliers with smooth jaws or even small pliers again with smooth jaws. Also for assembly the tweezers would be useless in many ribbon cable reinsertion positions. BTW they are nice tweezers but not for ribbon cables.

I have an EPL-7 in good condition, however, the on/off button has ceased working. It was a slow transition to not working. What could it be and should I spend the 200.00 dollars Olympus wants to service it? Thanks!
