Re: How would you fix this?
I tried a black Artline/Sharpie permanent marker initially - rubbed off on my hand first time I tried to use buttons, and I could still see the red backlighting dimly through them.
I then tried a Holts Matt Black touch up paint stick/brush - about A$10 worth from memory.
Did it carefully (not too much paint on the brush, light touches at a time only, couple of coats) about 3 months ago on both the mute and source buttons. Even with daily use neither has rubbed off as yet and they still look good, and completely blocks out the backlighting as they should.
Only a close look with a trained eye can pick them as being touched up.
Worth a go before spending on new buttons I guess!
