What is going on with my LR button?

My condolences for your loss. :P

The Nintendo DSi's L and R buttons are notorious for breaking. While the best and quickest way to fix them is to replace the entire back assembly (or just the ribbon cable, but that would require a lot of precision if you want to get it all aligned perfectly), a trick we all use is to cover the entire button with your mouth and kinda blow into it. It's probably bad for the system or something, but most of us don't care as long as it works. As a hardcore DSi user, there's my advice.

By the way, if you liked Flipnote Hatena, I've recreated it so that you can use it directly on the Nintendo DSi. I call it Sudomemo. Maybe you'll enjoy it? sudomemo net

Wishing you a wonderful day and some working L and R buttons,

Ref: DSI Bought 3DS communicator and now I'm receiving this error message " An error has occurred. Press and hold the Power Button to turn the system off. Please see the Nintendo DSI Operations...

Simple fix... stop pirating and buy the games.
The message ''An error has occurred'' is a typical message which many users have encountered on their DSi, DSi XL, 3DS and Wii. It happens when either a blocked modchip or flashcart is detected by the console.

My nintendo dsi l and r buttons are not working

my left button stopped working too. Someone told me to blast just under the bbutton with a can of air pressure air, (that sound kind of funny,),.... I think it's called "dust off." It didn't work for me but it might work for you.

Hope that helped.
