As an emergency and temporary stop-gap, you can try wrapping the pad and key with thin plastic cling wrap. Some brands are more "clingy" than others so try to find a brand that will cling to the key and stay in place. Cut a piece about 2-3 inches square and place it between the pad and tone hole then wrap it around the key. Be sure that the cling wrap is very flat with no wrinkles over the actual pad surface. This may or may not help, but you won't harm your flute by trying and your repair technician (when you find one) will thank you for that.
Where are you located? Several of the Fluteland board participants (myself included) are flute technicians and know flute technicians in many areas. We may be able to help you find a tech close to you.
