Unfortunately the connector inside the DS is very fragile and has likely come loose. If you have any experience in tinkering or are happy to try to repair yourself all you need is a tri-wing nintendo screwdriver (2-3$ on ebay)
Then you simply remove the back whilst holding in the the shoulder buttons as there are two springs which will want to puch the shoulder buttons off (with the springs getting lost in the process)
Your then follow the ribbon wire to the connector on the mainboard and remove then reconnect.
now you can reassemble and test.
If this did not work there are a number of seller on ebay who would do the reapir for you from around $20 -$40 depending on whther the screen itself is broken or the connector on the mainboard is broken
Under the buttons there is a rubber part that get worn and broken by time and use. There also can be dust, liquids or grease so there is a poor contact and you press harder to get it to work worsening the problem.
Not a complicated repair if you get the spare and tools, you can do it yourself if you are related with electronic devices, or better find a videogame repair shop or technician near you, Google it and good luck...
i have face the the same problem with my ps2 conttroler. In my case it was the problem with the analog (the sticks). May be the spring of your left analog is broken is broken. Do not try to open it yourself and fix, it can disturb the wiring of the remote. Take it to your local ps repair shop or you will have to buy a new one
Disc Cover open: Close the Disc Cover.
If the same error continues after the Disc Cover is securely closed, you will need to have your system repaired as it is likely you have an internal malfunction. Please use our convenient repair options
you can yes but I dont think you can buy the part, so you'll need to look out for another broken GBA SP. Once you have another you'll need a "triwing" screwdriver (google it or ebay it!) to open the GBA SP
Once you're inside the button will pop out easily.
To be honest though, given the price of working GBA SPs on ebay, I'd just buy another. its easier ;)
The switch is broken. This is a common problem if the shell case has been removed or if someone simply pushed way too ******* the power button. A new button can be purchased on ebay for under $10. Some soldering and desoldering will be required. The DS Lite is breakable when taking it apart so be careful. You can also send it to a guy like me for a fee and have it fixed or sell the broken unit to someone like me that fixes them.
Yes. The switch has broken and is replaceable. However I wouldn't recommend you do it unless you've done this before. DS Lites are easy to damage further when taking them apart. It's a great system but is easily broken beyond fixing. Look at all the posts on here from people putting new shells on and now the system won't boot up, broken ribbon cable connectors, etc. If it's under a year old contact Nintendo and they will repair it for free.
Hi Dill, I know how to fix that. Is the case, plastic, Spring, or Electronic Button, or Plastic L Button broken.
You have a steel post, that is held between the upper and lower case. The L button itself has a hinge that the stell poost goes through. A spring goes in the center of the hinge. Once you mount the button aand post, you have to pry the sping arm around and let it catch and hold on a little black tab.
