[edit] Hints

Hint One
    The door will open if you interpret the instructions correctly. There's nothing tricky going on here. You just need to approach the problem with a different mind-set.

Hint Two
    Think more broadly about the phrase "open with a two." Don't get hung up on the numbers on each individual button.

Hint Three
    "Open with a two" refers to pushing the buttons that together form a shape of a number two when lit.

Super Hint
    Press one, two, three, six, nine, eight, seven... You should start to see the shape of a certain number emerge.

    That's right! The trick is to press the buttons that together form a number-two shape when lit up. Pretty neat, huh?

    Also, see how there are four buttons left untouched? That's what the other part of the instructions refers to.

[edit] When Failed

Too bad!

Try thinking about it from a different angle.

[edit] When Completed

Bingo!

The trick was to light up the buttons that together form a number two.

"Leave the four" simply meant to leave four specific buttons untouched.

[edit] Solution
