Default I am pretty sure dirt is behind my keys, what is the best action to take?

I am pretty sure dirt has got behind one of the buttons and I can't seem to press it and it is unfortunately the on button. Should I attempt to take the phone apart or send it back for warranty? I've sent phones back before and I've been charged large amounts for replacement parts.

Any suggestions? I have a Samsung GTi5700 if that makes any difference.

warranty won't cover that so yes you will feel like you been mugged with what they charge, or you could go to independent repair shop but that will almost certainly invalidate your warranty, or you could try to fix yourself if you know what you doing, so they your options so up to you to decide.

Try getting a can of compressed air and spray it around the button. If it's dirt the air pressure should blow it out
