Pentax K-01 ON/OFF switch NOK

After the latest repair of my Pentax K-01 repair, the ON/OFF switch, when switched to ON, gives bad contact and the camera falls off. In the beginning I could still take one or two pictures, but now you have to push continually on the switch otherwise the camera stops working.
Is there a way to repair this by myself?

This isn't guaranteed to work, but it's the first thing I'd do: Spray with electronic contact cleaner, toggle repeatedly, spray again, toggle repeatedly again.
