Question about Nintendo DS Console

1 Answer

L-Button I have had Nintendo DS for almost half a year. 2 months ago my L button started to become less reliable, say every 10th time it didn't work. last week it hardly ever worked and now no matter how many times i try on any game it wont work. I don't want to go get it fixed because I'm I debt and i don't have a warranty, if someone could find a way to fix the problem i would be most gratefull.

Re: L-Button

You can try taking apart the console and cleaning the connections for the sholder buttons. You also should be making sure they are springy and connect to the board properly. The ones that I have repaired with this problem have all been cleanings. You can find video disasembly tutorials by googling around with "take apart ds." If this is a DS-Lite, then just follow the same instructions but google DS-Lite instead of DS.

I bought a nintendo ds lite a month ago and the last week or so, the touch screen has become really shaky. Can I get it repaired or is it something that can't be fixed?

Hi did you buy it new or second hand?

If you bought it new I would bring it back to the shop you purchased it in as it would be under guarantee and they should replace it or repair it for you at no cost to yourself.

If its second hand some of the phone repair shops also do computer and console repairs its worth checking out.

My 8 yr. old daughter left here ds lite in the rain

Go to the retailer you bought it from and if you bought it less than two years ago you can get a new one free with the exchange of the old one only if you have the warranty

My Trigger Buttons don't work!!

This has happened to me as well. I wasn't able to find a fix, but as you've only had your DS for half a year, it's still under warranty (12 month standard on all Nintendo consoles,) so I would recommend sending it in for repairs. You can set up a repair order here:

It shouldn't take too long, when I sent mine in on a tuesday afternoon, it was back by friday.

Hope this helps.
