    look here


    is your circle pad also loose?
    i didnt register any input, just the circle a bit loose (like not stable)
    i fear that it wears out then detached off the base.or might loosen even more.
    fyi, my 3ds is first batch product, came with firmware 1.0

    My original 3DS had this issue too. I guess its no big deal anyway.

    Haven't seen my LL though.

    Holy hell that's wobbly.
    I have an original 3DS from the time it was out and nope, that doesn't happen.
    Don't worry about it though, I'm pretty sure it won't come off loose or anything. ;)

    Mine does that too, I think that's about right, it might even be an proposital behaviour. It's better that it's a little loose and it has some vibration than it won't absorb much energy and it will have a longer life. This concept is used in the glass of bus's windows, if they aren't a little loose they wouldn't vibrate and they would explode with pressure, it's something about the physics.

    The rubber on mine never acted like that. A cousin of mine ripped it off once, though.
    Behind the rubber is a black circle pad shaped just like the rubber above it. I actually found this to be more comfortable, so I kept it off. You could always put it back on if you want.

    I don't think my issue is on the rubber, and I don't wanna rip mine off D:
    How did you even manage to rip the rubber? Lol

    Ah, my bad, sorry.
    I wasn't there at the time my cousin did it, but I imagine that it was worn off or something like that. >_
