hi, i have a gcw zero that despite my love for it has been collecting dust due to the sticky d-pad/face buttons and not taking the time to post about this sooner im wondering if anybody on here who feels confident/competent and has opened up the zero before for button replacement, i could send you my gcw zero and you could buy as part of the service fee [or i could buy and send along with the unit] the 3d printed buttons.

i really wanna get back into the zero again. i dont feel confident in my ability to safely take the thing apart and re-asemble it without any wires breaking or something like that and im not very good at soldering so like i said, somebody who feels confident and compitent who's opened up their zero before without error. i dunno what i should pay for a service like what im speaking of, so whoever feels up for it send me a message and maybe we can work out a deal. also as far as payment is concerned i'll be able to pay no sooner than the 1st of the month, but i just thought i'd make this post now while it was on my mind.

I'd also be interested in if there's a service for this. I pulled out of a purchase on here a few weeks ago over my concerns about the buttons. I'm in the UK by the way.

I've been doing repairs and button replacements for the GCW for a couple years.

I have all kinds of parts, including 3d-printed buttons in stock, so there will be a relatively quick turn-around.

The best way to contact me is through email (my username @0x64.ca).

As for rates, it's a flat rate + the cost of buttons + shipping both ways to/from western Canada.
