Re: broken

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!

Re: broken

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.

Re: broken

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

My nes advantage won't work

You could try another port, or try to adjust firing modes etc. in case there is a loose connection. It sounds like a hardware problem to me.

Psp screen has a screen of broken screen

are you sure it isn't broken? theres a protector screen in front of the actual LCD if you didn't know. in other words, the screen that "isn't broken" isn't the screen you are looking at.

My ps3 doesn't get the wireless connection because it ask me to press the aoss button and i don't know where is it can you help me please.

The AOSS (AirStation OneTouch Secure System) buttion is actually located on your wireless router. It is part of the Buffalo Technology system and allows secure wireless connections to ge setup with the touch of one button. Most wireless routers will have this type of button on the front panel. They are labeled differently by each company, but they will all function the same. This gives you the choice of pushing one button rather than having to manually enter the setup information. Check your manual for something similar to One Touch Setup.

I have the original xbox. I also have the gamestop wireless controller. The thing is the light comes on the adapter when i turn on the controller but none of the buttions work.

There is probably a small reset button on the bottom of the adapter, you should press that button and most likely the start button on the controller to sync it up.
