Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

My Trigger Buttons don't work!!

Help!! My DS Lite's L and R buttons don't work! I got it for Christmas last year, and within 3 months, the L button stopped working, no matter how hard I pressed, and now my R button stopped working about 2 weeks ago. If I push REAL hard, it will work, but only for about 5 minutes, then it stops working again! I haven't dropped it down any stairs, or anything, so it couldn't be that... Could it? If anyone knows if there's a place where I can get it fixed, please tell me, because I'm not very technically gifted. PLEASE HELP!!

    But, the ID tag on the back of the DS peeled off after the first 3 months. Is there any other place that I can send it without a reciept or an ID?

This has happened to me as well. I wasn't able to find a fix, but as you've only had your DS for half a year, it's still under warranty (12 month standard on all Nintendo consoles,) so I would recommend sending it in for repairs. You can set up a repair order here: http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/repair/dslite_system.jsp?region=USA&is=s3O

It shouldn't take too long, when I sent mine in on a tuesday afternoon, it was back by friday.

Hope this helps.

Nintendo ds lite l button doesnt work


Does it click when you press it or does it seem to be out of position? If so, that's an easy fit.To fix this you'd have to open up the DS and re position the button and the pin holding it in place.

If not that, its probably got something to do with the trigger inside the DS. When you press the shoulder buttons, they push into a button just below them on the motherboard, which sends a message to the DS. If that has fallen off or started malfunctioning in any way, it could definitely be causing this. You'd have to order one online (link provided to an example) NINTENDO DS LITE BUTTON SWITCH REPAIR PARTS 4 NEW and then solder it in after desoldering the other one, if you know how to do that.

If not, there are probably some repair guys with an ad on your local Craigslist who'd be happy to do it for you for a quick buck.

Nintendo DS lite "L" "R" button dont work


OK the buttons are probably dirty. I had this same problem with my DS. Pry open the outside edges of the buttons until there is a gap. Blow into the gap while making sure you dont spit in the console. This should clear out the dirt and make your buttons work.

Nintendo Ds Left Trigger


The trigger button needs replacing...a picture of the button is available at:
http://flickr.com/photos/shalf/2374701335/in/set-72157604320666655/

This needs to be done with a proper soldering iron, not the one in my garage!

Easy way to get it done, buy a new trigger from eBay (http://cgi.ebay.com.my/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=150292378706) and take the part and your DS Lite (remove the covers to expose the switch, see YouTube for more help, 10 minutes work) to your local TV repair shop and ask them to solder the part onto your DS. They will usually charge a nominal amount and you DS is fixed!

Good Luck.

Nintendo DS Lite, left trigger not functioning


The thing that cross731 said really really helps. If your too scared to open your ds/ds lite, just put your nail under the trigger pull up and just blow into the little hole that you see. It works I just tried it and my left rigger is working just fine.

L-Button


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.
