On my DS after about a year and half the "a" button started to not have
the spring back like the buttons to when first bought. instead of
standing up it is further down in the console, i think the i might have
just pushed the spring out to far and out from underneath the button.
This makes it very hard to play games that require the "a" button. so
if anyone can help with this problem or knows anyone who might know how
please let me know ASAP.

onj this search there are two fixes one involves the spring being replaced and the other replaces the button itself i suggest you replace the spring fisrt because it involves no soldering if that dont work go for the button but requires soldering skills
try this: hold A and B then turn ur ds on then when the ds logo appears hold start and select while still holding A and B then when the: this product is not licensed of endorced by nintendo: comes up release all buttons.. hope this works
you are probably trying to put the springs on the backing plate but that is not right. lay the console face down and put the pins in the holes right above the circuit board ( you can put the buttons down on the console and it will show you the proper holes) and then slide the first hole of the button on the pin, put the spring in between the two holes on the button, then slide the button all the way down on the pin and use a small screwdriver to push the spring into the slot that is used to put pressure on the spring.

Yes. The switch has broken and is replaceable. However I wouldn't recommend you do it unless you've done this before. DS Lites are easy to damage further when taking them apart. It's a great system but is easily broken beyond fixing. Look at all the posts on here from people putting new shells on and now the system won't boot up, broken ribbon cable connectors, etc. If it's under a year old contact Nintendo and they will repair it for free.
You can try taking apart the console and cleaning the connections for the sholder buttons. You also should be making sure they are springy and connect to the board properly. The ones that I have repaired with this problem have all been cleanings. You can find video disasembly tutorials by googling around with "take apart ds." If this is a DS-Lite, then just follow the same instructions but google DS-Lite instead of DS.
