One of the light switches is not turning on or off and it has screw covers on it. I'm not sure how to take them off they're flush fitting.

Jewellers screwdriver might be the best bet - I don't think you can get those off without damaging them, but then I haven't tried.
Try either a piece of sellotape or a tacky piece of blu tack that normally is enough to pull them out.
Same as Argoj, i use blu tack or a foam adhesive pad
I had the same query just this weekend. Used Sellotape like Argoj suggested.

Blu tack did the trick. Didn't seem to be any loose wires so I just screwed it back on and it now works.

I'd keep an eye on that switch just to make sure it's not arcing inside.
