Home button issues

While trying to jailbreak 5.0.1 I came across an interesting problem.
My home button will not register holding. It will only register a press. So when I try to enter DFU mode it will not do so, since the ipod will not register the button as being held, but only being pressed once. Otherwise the button works fine, it presses, it double clicks, it just won't hold.

Is this fixable? Before I start taking my ipod apart, can someone confirm that is something that can be fixed by just pushing the home button contact upwards (like in many tutorials I found).

It's an ipod touch 3G by the way.
