    The L button on my ds lite doesnt seem to be working. When i push it, it feels just like the R button, except the ds doesnt recognise the input.

    What can i do to fix this problem

    EDIT: I tried cleaning the button with a q-tip dipped in water and it appears to be working again!

    There have been a couple threads on this topic. For the most part it just seems like it's a problem with dust getting in under the button. I've had the same problem and honestly, just blowing in the little crack between the casing and the L button has resulted in it working again for me.

    I can't remember where the other threads were but they're simply a search away if you want something for future reference.
