    If its just stuck then you can try pressing it over and over to loosen it up. Other than that you'll need to get a set of screwdrivers and dive on in.

    I realize one button is stuck. Does the other one work, and if you press hard enough, does the stuck one respond?

    Then you're missing the little black nub on your volume button. Here's a pic for reference.

    The black dots ale the button work correctly. I'm willing to bet you're missing the black dot on the one you're having issues with.

    Or it's like the power button. When it has been used about 2.5 million times, the plastic bubble on the flex assembly gets flat. Replacing that whole flex assembly is a pain. If it works, i would leave it alone, but buy the flex assy. and review youtube for the procedure.
    Have fun learning, and if you need help, you are in the right place. Cowboy could probly do this drunk AND blindfolded!
