Re: My L-Button has mysteriously stopped working

The problem your describing is dirt under the button.
Any local store has them, home hardware, walmart,zellers,etc.
They run fairly cheap, probally around 5 dollars.
Try getting a hold of a screwdriver, and cleaning the inside of dirt.
PS this would usually happen when you play with dirty fingers.
So my advice, wash up! ;)

You can try to do a system recovery on your PS3. this will set your PS3 back to factory settings as the settings may have been changed during the use. Here is the process in which you can do a system recovery.'

PS3 Recovery Menu

  1. Place the PS3 in standby mode
  2. Press and hold the power button for a couple of seconds, you should hear a beep
  3. Keep a hold of the power button for a couple more seconds, the PS3 should shut back down to standby mode
  4. Once this happens, press and hold the power button again for a couple of seconds, waiting for 1 single beep.
  5. Ignore this beep and keep it pressed until you hear 2 consecutive beeps, release the button.
I think you choose option 3 and then repeat and choose option 4. Once you are done with this, try out your PS3.

I turned my ds off when i was in the mystery zone

If you can, put on your Action Replay again and go the opposite way you came. If that doesn't work, then I think your game is just ruined.

It is a known bug in the game. EA have not announced a patch for the PS3 version, so I cannot say when the bug will be fixed. 
You can attempt to start the game again, but it is likely you will come across the same bug.

Are you connected to the Internet? If you are connected by a routor, disconnect it and try again. If the Nintendo Wi-fi USB connector, use the registering tool, and deny access.
If it didn't work, I'm not sure. You may have found where all the Wii files are!
