    Yeah, don't play Pokemon [​IMG]

    On a serious note though, if you're experienced, you could take it apart and look for the problem and replace the springs, get someone else to, buy a new one or get Nintendo to fix it (although that can be expensive if you're out of warranty)

    There aren't springs under A & B. There are rubber cups that bounce back. The buttons themselves have little tabs on them that keep them from rotating, so "A" and "B" are always upright. It could be that you pressed so hard that the buttons turned a little so that the tabs got stuck. Look for a disassembly guide, they're all over the net, and get a tri-wing screwdriver.

    Yeah, sorry, there's been so much talk about the shoulder buttons. But yeah, it sounds like taking it apart is your best bet. If you aren't comfortable with it, see if a friend has the expertise or just go for it [​IMG]
