Nintendo DS Lite directional pad sticking

Hi. My daughter's DS Lite directional pad is sticking when she tries to use the "down" or "right" part of the pad. She doesn't notice it being a problem except when she's playing Pokemon Mystery Dungeon/Time version. The GameStop employee says that perhaps the sensor underneath the plastic "plus sign" is messed up. Any help would be appreciated.

Hi,

Often game pads is made up of a rubber pad with several contact points. These points then switches momentarily ON a function such as the up/down, left/right and others. Due to constant use over time, it is possible for the rubber pad to soften, develop faults that causes problems as you have posted.

What is therefore required is to open the unit up and replace the rubber pads.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

This could the problem with the game software which is not install properly reinstall the game and play again and if notice the same problem reset the player to factory setting and then check if these work and if within warranty you can get it replaced .......if out warranty get it get serviced by local service center there may dust in the keys pads which cause the problem .................

Take out batt and use rubbing alcohol to clean the sensor and the panel located below, you can also pop off the cap to make this eaiser, then replace cap and rotate the joystick in at every angle possible several times over make sure to use rubbing alch. so that it will dry faster DO NOT TURN THE DS ON WHILE WET i would let it sit upside down over night to prevent a short out!

Nintendo ds lite


Hi,
you,ll pay more to have it repaired than to replace it.
I,d suggest buy a new one.
Keep the old one for spares.
Once motherboards/Circuitboards get soaked, it damages the boards/components/solder joints.
