    To your right ->
    I was trying to get my DSTWO to register on my 3DS and after finally getting it to work I went to play some mario kart. Anyway the long and short of it is that after the game was not playing correctly I turned off the system and turned it back on.

    The box to select what you want to open on the menu kept moving right. I had this problem on my wii with my nunchuk before, which was normally fixed by turning it on and off. I also tried holding left on the d-pad to counter it, whilst turning it on. I also tried callibrating the analog stick which failed.

    So now I am stuck with the controls completely messed up, sometime they get stuck going one way, sometimes they get stuck the other way. Or they completely spas out.

    My warranty from nintendo is long gone, but if someone can tell me how to fix it, if it requires replacing parts, then I could probably do it myself.

    Looking online on google turned up nothing of use.

    Its either your circle pad (easy to replace) or your d-pad has some corrosion on it causing the d-pad to be constantly on,
    try a game like mario 3d world and see what happens with the controls

    In your kitchen cabinet, behind the bread
    It looks like this might solve your problem:

    This was taken from the 3DS manual, but this method is also listed in the 3DSXL and 2DS manuals, so it should work on any 3DS system you have. I hope this works!

    Wow, I only just now realized this, sorry for being an idiot and telling you what you already know. :( Sadly, I can't think of any other way to help your situation, but I do hope you can fix it! Best of luck to ya!
