    I have a 3DS and as said above at the start menu the selector keeps going down . I have tried disconnecting the circle pad but it still happens. When I play 3DS games everything is fine but it's when I try to play NDS games that the real problem arises, in these games there is a constant down movement as there is in the R4i menu.

    Because of this I have come to the conclusion that the problem is the other movement pad, I want to disable the down on this pad but i don't know how. I cut out the part on the mother board for down but it still happens, I don't know how much I can cut out without doing damage or if I should cut any more out at all.

    Is there a way to disable this or has anyone any better ideas.......

    Thanks.

    So you tried cutting both d-pad down and circle pad down and it still happened? Hmm... can you try using a legit NDS cartridge and see if it still happens? Shot in the dark, but who knows.

    Thanks.

    I disconnected the circle pad, what do you mean by cut down the D pad.I cut a hole in the mother board where the down is.

    This should be in Homebrew Development as it sounds like an advanced hardcore user modification of the console.

    It's an old 3ds that has been replaced because it had a few issues.I have solved the others and it can be used for 3ds games no problem. Nobody seems to know how to fix this so i decided to give it a shot because the down on the d pad won't be needed most of the time.
