    Well my old Gameboy Color had similar issues so I opened it up and blew out the dust and it worked again. Same thing might work for you.

    Meh, its only £1 so if it isn't what I need it doesn't really matter. Just ordered.

    That's caused by the rubber thingy under the pad, it happened with my A button since most games have you press A, the rubber lost the strenght so it no longer stands 'firm' so to say, and looses it's rebound effect.

    Edit: Yeah, you odered the right thing, just place it under the Dpad and it'll work like new. ^^

    I'm also buying a brand new replacement bottom screen as mine is quite scratched and a zelda shell :D

    Also can a staff member move this topic to the right sub section as when I created this I just clicked on the DS icon in the recent posts as I forgot about the different subsections.

    Just be careful when replacing your shell, if you don't know what you're doing, you might damage some cables. >.
