Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
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.

I had the same thing happen to my ds but the only easy way to fix it is blowing air into the solders of each button and it will be working in no time
