    There was a peice of cardboard down the game slot on my 3ds so I stupidly tried pulling it out with a pin and it bent the pins inside the gameslot, I opened it up and fixed them but accidentally ripped the left button ribbon. Does anyone know where to find a replacement button?

    What you linked didn't seem to give him anything useful.

    just found that after some quick googling.

    not sure if it specifies 3DS, but if it's just the ribbon cable that's gone kaput, how different can the cable be from the dsi/dsl?

    there are probably other sites that sell similar parts, this is just te first that i saw on google.

    maybe even try getting hold of a faulty dsl/dsi/3ds off ebay or something?

    good luck, hope you get it fixed

    But the ribbon maybe different from system to system.....
    The 2nd option looks like the most handy one right now.

    I think I'll find a dsi xl one, it was the only one that looked close. But does anyone know what I'm talking about with the cardboard in the slot? I know for a fact that I didn't put it there....
