showing base layer

I have a slide with five layers. there is a button on the corner that once you click it, it displays layer two. layer two is a transparent layer that shows at the bottom. it works fine except for the fact that when you're on layer 3 or 4 or 5 and you click the button to display layer two, it does, but it shows the base layer under it all. 

How can i get it to show layer two without showing the base layer. 

I know how to hide the base layer, but if i do that, when you're on the base layer and click the button to show layer two, instead of showing layer two at the bottom, it will show layer two and hide the base layer.

I hope i haven't confused everyone.

Cindy, Could you tell me a little more about what is on each layer in very general terms, so I can be more helpful? For example

Layer 5 - Colored background, base layer hidden, room for banner across the bottom, all other layers hidden

Layer 4 - Colored background, base layer hidden, room for banner across the bottom, all other layers hidden

Layer 3 - Colored background, base layer hidden, room for banner across the bottom, all other layers hidden

Layer 2 - Transparent background, banner across bottom with text

Base Layer - Content with button on lower right

Does Layer 2 contain content or some navigation/interactive element?
