Getting a replacement *is* the most economic engineering solution. To hack the ROM to do what you want, I estimate 20 to 40 hours of work at least from a competent person, so the cost of labor would be quite high, many times higher than the cost of buying a new 50g, even if that competent person is yourself.
Regarding environmental concerns: all 50g's in the world were already manufactured. Whether you buy one or not, the amount of 50g's that will end in the landfill is fixed, so the environmental impact of you getting a new one is effectively zero.
