Wii Fightstick Help

I have the Hori Wii Fightstick, bought it about a year ago, and it hasn’t really been giving me problems until now. One of the buttons does not respond at all in any fashion, so I decided to open it up and see what I could do. Lo and behold, I can’t do a thing about it because the panel is soldered to the buttons! Does anyone have a suggestion aside from taking tools to it other than a screwdriver? I wanna get to playing Street Fighter!
