"L" Button dosn't work.

On my nintendo DS Lite, when I attempt to play a game that has an action set to the "L" button, it dosnt work. It works occasinally, but i'm worried that I have to purchase a new one. I recently got the Internet Browser and used the "L" button constantly and I think that may be the problem. Is there anyway that i can fix my Nintedo DS's "L" button?

    I've tried blowing on the "L" button liek others say and it worked at first but it stopped working after a while. I need the "L" button to play more than half of my games.

Try blowing into it. Yes, blowing into it. What may have happened was the circuits are disconnected, and the condensation from your breath helps to reconnect it. You may have to do this every couple days or so.

Nintendo ds won't start pokemon diamond game

Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to
