My ds lites' L button has almost entireley stoped working. It looks as if it's been dropped but i have no knowlage of it falling / i got it brand new so someone must have dropped it how may i fix it and what may have broke internally.
Well i dont recomend opening it because this will void your warenty i think that you should call the number on the back of your ds and either ask about it or send it in it will cost 45$ but if you just bought it you should fight with the place you bought it from i did this with my old nds and in the end the gave me a nds lite :)

Re: Broken L button...
If you are confident in taking it apart, just compare the L button to the R button, you should see what the problem is. And since you already have it open it will make it easy to replace what needs to be replaced, which is probably just the L button itself.

This is a design flaw!! Apparently if the DS Lite has been dropped, this damages the charging mechanism. This can only be repaired by Nintendo. However, even when you get the DS Lite back, there is no guarantee that the DS Lite will work for more than 2 weeks to a month, as this has been with my case. You may want to look into purchasing the DSi, as I have not found this to be a common problem with these new game systems (but, do your own research). Don't bother buying a new battery. It won't help!
First off. The quickest way to fix the L and R butons is to blow into the sides of the buttons as hard as you can several times for both buttons. I know it sounds dumb, but dust collects in there and 90% of the time this is the problem.
Second, if the top screen is wobbly it's because either the hing has worn our or the case has cracked at the hing. Either way the DS will need to be repaired (taken apart) to fix this. Both instances will require new parts. Hope this helps.
there may be some kind of damage in the ds as i had the same problem it may have been shaken around or dropped or even faulty the best thing to do is send it back if you dont have the warranty then go to a gaming store most have a collection day where someone comes to pick up broken ds and takes them its free except tfor the repair.Its best if you dont fiddle around with it a it will become more damaged
