    did you swap cases by chance?

    the top display going out sounds like an issue that I had with an older system where the flexible ribbon cable was getting pinched when the ds lite was opened to the point past that initial click from: _ / to _ _

    as far as your L trigger button not working, that could be one of two things. either the switch on the pc board is going bad (or has already gone bad), or the alignment of the L trigger is off and the post for the trigger button isn't making contact with the switch on the pc board.

    Blow into your L button, it worked with my R button, but after some time (2 or 3 days) you have to blow in it again, and it will work again [​IMG]

    I should buy a new one if I were you, or look if you can still repair it.
