    When I got my dsi All the buttons were working well and I didnt have any problems. But now, less than 3 months later the power button is worn down to the point where I have to press down really hard on it. I didnt overuse it or anything. Did this happen to your dsi? Can I get some advice on how to fix or prevent this problem please?

    Never heard of something like this is really strange, the only problem in my DSi is the R button but as worlok375 it fixes itself sometimes.

    My R button was messed up but when I switched cases it worked again.


    But the power button sometimes i have to press it twice.... guess I didn't press it hard enough the first time

    my problem is the R button. my L button on my ds lite doesnt work, but at least blowing on or in it makes it work. It doesnt work for the dsi.

    i've had my red dsi since last july and have had no problems with it no buttons sticking or anything.Maybe you guys are pressing too hard on buttons/letting it get dusty.

    The DSi's have button problems and the DSL's have hinge cracking problems.
    But overall the DS is the most solid system.

    To repair it you can try giving it to Nintendo or open the DS up and fix it yourself.

    I got my launch DSi in the mail and a week later the R button wasn't working right, so i sent it to nintendo to fix it. When it came back, the L button broke, 2 DAYS LATER! >:(
