IPod touch 5th gen

Hello all.
I got an Ipod touch 5th generation for christmas. This past monday, my home button stopped working. I can't press it.like there isnt any spring to it. Basically right now all it is is decoration. In order to get to another app, I have to completely power it off. No warranty on it. would it be okay to take apart and try to fix? Help?

Every iPod comes with a 1 year warranty. Take it back and get a new one.

Emailed the place it was purchased from to see if it could be returned and replaced. Hopefully it can. Thank you.

Make a Genius Bar appointment and go to your local apple store. Apple will replace it even if you didn't buy it from them

Exactly. As long as you book a Genius Bar appointment at your local Apple store you are covered for all manufacturing defects (not working home button being one of them). Cheers.
