Dismantling procedure for camera

Hi, rocker button now completely failed so I'm trying to dismantle the beast to get at it. Have removed all accessible crosshead screws (2 each side, 4 underneath, 2 - probably irrelevant - from flash head), also the battery hatch, and the body shells can now be pried apart slightly at the sides. However something is holding it together at mid-axis. Are there further screws under labels/viewfinder surround/etc? Any advice welcome - I don't want to wreck it with brute force. Superb camera btw!

Oh how fun, yep when I dismantled one of my old dead kodak digital cams - same thing, I'd removed all the screws but still struggled to open it up. Yes, the body is also "snapped" together with a couple of fittings. And after much futzing & prying, yah me. Holds up 2 plastic halves & one former camera guts. Yea was a good camera, it had lived a long & happy life, even after the super cheapo battery compartment door fell off, um, after being dropped maybe.

No power. Lens 'protruding'.

There are six other things to try besides shaking, tapping, and bashing listed on the following blog page. Especially try the one starting the camera with the memory card removed. Do not recommend dismantling as your chances are very slim in repairing that way:
