    i need your help

  • dill16 Dec 09, 2007

    When i push the Lbutton or trigger on the Nintendo DS Lite it does not respond, it clicks like it works but does not do anything at all.

  • dill16 Dec 09, 2007

    Do i need special tools, or anything special? The shop charges a bit too much.

  • dill16 Dec 09, 2007

    where is this store? phone number? shipping(unless your close by)? So $15-$30 to fix it?

    My DS Lite has the L button looking okay but when I play my game, nothing happens.2 months ago it worked perfectly and I didn't use it much.Is it gonna cost me $$$ to fix it?

  • dill16 Dec 22, 2008

    Sorry i havn't been on here in quite some time, i got a tri wing and took it apart, nothing was dirty or visibly damaged. I'm thinking i just need a new switch or button assembly. I have another ds i can use but i still would like to fix mine. Only good thing is that im gettin a psp in...4days ;P

This is usually caused by the contacts on the button being dirty. Because of built up dirt, the contacts can't, well, make contact, and so there's no L button signal. I used to think the only way to solve this was to open up the NDSL and take it apart, cleaning it.

However, I ran across a GameSpot forum post by SonOfTheSky05. Simply put, press your lips around the L-trigger and create a perfect seal, then blow a number of times. This will clear the contacts and get it working again, at least assuming that dirty contacts is your problem. Otherwise you might need a new switch.

Try it a few times, it worked for me!

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.

    Hi Dill16,



    You need a special screwdrive called a Tri-wing. You will also need a phillips head. My Shop will charge you between $15 and $30 depending on the problem.

    Hi dill16,



    I will try to find someone for you, I only know some people in Chicago from them being customers of the Playstation Clinic.

    Try this television repair shop in Chicago.
    773-731-3270 Ask them if they have a Tri-wing screw driver to get inside a Nintendo DS lite. You can search for repair shops in your area, by Clicking on "Repair Directory" at the bottom of this screen. Check in "Video Game Consoles", and "Standard Televisions" You might find someone who will do this reasonable. My shop is a hobby, and is not intended to make a huge profit.

    Hi Dill,



    How about putting the Fixya Vote back. I put a lot of effort into getting you help just because clicked on Fixya. Lowering my rating is the wrong way to show me any appreciation for the time I put into writing back to you for Free.

was the key in the on position while it was stuck in ignition? If so, you have a dead battery most likely. Get it charged or jumped depending on how dead it is and it should start. Hope that helps.

Touch buttions dont work


Either the touch buttons got wet, or you got the Chocolate of Doom. There are many LG Chocolates being sold to people and the touch sensors aren't lined up correctly with the buttons and they eventually fall out of place. I suggest replacing your phone with a different phone. DO NOT GET ANOTHER CHOCOLATE unless you want to risk this happening again. Hope this helps!!!!

Phone is on mute


just gets confused and restoring factory settings can fix that problem. Go to menu-tools-settings-general-factory settings the phone asks Restor original settings phone will restart press yes it asks for security code. The default code for nokia is 12345. If this doesnt work enter this code *#7370# and the phone will reset. You then set it up as new
