Nintendo Ds Left Trigger

My Nintendo DS Left Trigger hasn't been working a lot lately. I have tried blowing into the small hole there, but nothing works. I got the DS from America bcoz I went on holiday there, then I went back to Malaysia to stay. There isn't any repair shop in Penang, or thats what I heard of. What else can I DO!!

The trigger button needs replacing...a picture of the button is available at:

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.

When i need to blow into the ds microphone to dry off littest pet shop, nothing happens


It may be possable that the microphone is broken. Did you try cleaning it off? Did you try blowing on it a lot so the dust inside the ds(i) comes off (out)? If none of these work, Just send in you're ds to nintendo, They can fix it. Don't buy a new ds, calling nintendo is cheaper.

I hope this helps!

The Right Trigger isn't working at all


I had a similar problem with my left triger but cross731 had said to lift up the triger with your finger nail, and blow into the hole. This supposedly gets rid of dust. Now if you have damaged it by dropping it several times than.. I recremend that you take it in to be fixed.

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.

Nintendo ds won't start pokemon diamond game


Do you know anyone else who has a nintendo ds (doesn't have to be lite)? If so, try the game in that sytstem, and if the same thing happens, then the game has a glitch. This tends to happen a lot with plenty of my handheld games, and i find that it helps if you blow into the game cartridge, and also into the cartridge hole. If that doesn't work, try repeatedly turning the game on and off. And if that doesn't work, try going to nintendo.com.
