I recieved a Nintendo DS and at first it worked fine.After I used it about 5 times I noticed that the ''R'' button was getting stuck.After I examed the problem I noticed that my DS was bent and it was bent back in a way that it was stoping the ''R'' button from working.What should I do? I think I might need to send it to NIntendo and have them take a look at it.I will greatly appreciate all help!

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 would first try to reset the ds to factory settings. Reset Factory Settings for Nintendo DS
1. Use a small screwdriver to unscrew the back cover. 2. Remove the battery. 3. Wait a few seconds. 4. Replace battery. 5. Turn on DS. 6a. If you have to re-enter your nick-name/time and date etc, it has worked! Go to 7. 6b. If not, remove the battery again and wait longer. 7. Replace cover and screw back in place.
I've heard of this happening before but usually intentionally done in order to manipulate time in games that make use of real world time change.
There is another solution for the guy that had 2 white screens before anything comes up. I have heard this many times. before turing on ur ds, hold A and B. Then turn the power on still holding A and B. Then right when you see the DS screen, hold start and select. So now holding A,B,Start,and Select, the white screens will come up. hold these buttons until the lincenced by nintendo comes up. That means it worked. Depending on how many codes you have, it will take up to 1-5 minutes of holding those buttons. If this doesnt work, dont blame me, I heard it from someone else. I tried it and it didnt work, but thats because there was something else wrong with my AR.
If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube:
"Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"
And after opening it you may need to replace or try to repair the audio plug. In case you cant, then you must take it out (desoldering it with the stuck stylus tip and the mute switch, which is embeded in the headphone jack) and you can have your audio back. As the audio switch and the jack only work to mute the speakers audio usually when you plug a headphone then you can lack of it almost all times.
