    the complete strip will likely to be available from the manufacturer

    the individual switches from various suppliers like Farnell, Mouser, Digi-Key etc

    search for tactile switch

    Sometimes a squirt of cleaner is enough to get them working again.

    I desoldered it and am waiting for the shipment from China. No idea why this happened. Nobody used this button (it's in the center and used for settings, hasn't been touched in years). I guess we'll know when I get the new button and solder it back on.

    who knows …. maybe a manufacturing dud ? …. maybe moisture got into it ?

    hope the replacement solves the problem :)
