My ds lites' L button has almost entireley stoped working. It looks as if it's been dropped but i have no knowlage of it falling / i got it brand new so someone must have dropped it how may i fix it and what may have broke internally.
Well i dont recomend opening it because this will void your warenty i think that you should call the number on the back of your ds and either ask about it or send it in it will cost 45$ but if you just bought it you should fight with the place you bought it from i did this with my old nds and in the end the gave me a nds lite :)

Re: Broken L button...
If you are confident in taking it apart, just compare the L button to the R button, you should see what the problem is. And since you already have it open it will make it easy to replace what needs to be replaced, which is probably just the L button itself.

First off. The quickest way to fix the L and R butons is to blow into the sides of the buttons as hard as you can several times for both buttons. I know it sounds dumb, but dust collects in there and 90% of the time this is the problem.
Second, if the top screen is wobbly it's because either the hing has worn our or the case has cracked at the hing. Either way the DS will need to be repaired (taken apart) to fix this. Both instances will require new parts. Hope this helps.
L2 inductor comes out sometimes when dropped and the DS keeps in fixed amber light when charger is plugged in. But you found it fast so good luck. Its pretty sure your DS will work again after soldering the L2 again in its place near the power switch. Just get the battery and charger out before doing anything to avoid a blown fuse also.
If both of your screens are not broken, then the problem is the motherboard. your best bet is to go on ebay and look for some cheap broken ds's( ones where the only problem is the screens being broken or the shoulder buttons not working or something like that, so you would be able to use just what you need: the motherboard) or if your lucky you'll be able to find working ds motherboards all by themselves.
if you do this, there are plenty of online guides to help you out. if you need some then just email me at email@example.com
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.
If that is the only problem with your NDS then you can try looking at the volume control, if too loosen then maybe you have a broken volume control plastic piece or even a broken solder or broken volume potentiometer maybe caused by a bump or drop, where you may need to carefully open and check this part for deffects or damage. You would need some thomson, blade and philips small screwdrivers to dissasemble. Its also useful a guide and video to do the work right without anything else damaged.
