bs button stopped working

This gadget stopped working recently. BS Button | Gag Gifts Batteries and contacts are good, and the little wires inside all seem intact. But for whatever reason it stopped working, gave out it seems. What could likely be the problem? Press on the button and nothing happens anymore. I could open it up and take a few pictures of the inside and post them here, if that could help with troubleshooting suggestions. There's a little circuit board inside and a speaker type component.

Try taking it apart. It' probably just the switch.

Yeah here's what it looks like on the inside http://i207.photobucket.com/albums/b...1/IMG_1716.jpg
The black button underneath the top cap looks as if it makes contact with the circle there in the middle of the circuit board when it's pressed down, with the spring action which also seems upond examination intact and working fine. Doesn't seem to be a mechanical problem with the spring action of the "switch".
