    Blow until you get dizzy.
    Works for me.
    Alternatively you could throw your ds to the floor.
    It fixed my L button, the R one still doesn't work without some blowing, however.

    I clean them with my teeth, always does the job. If not sending it back to nintendo or if you still have the receit from where you bought it, try replacing it for another one.

    Blow your DS.

    Lol.

    It works, but you have to do it every half hour or so depending on how bad the triggers are, and you look like a dork in public.

    You can pull the button up until it clicks out of place then blow really hard. It worked every time for my DSL.

    If you can't fix it yourself by blowing into the button, then I say try and find a local electronic or gaming shop that does repairs. The repair cost from them will be much cheaper than Nintendo's price (If they do charge) and you won't have to wait to ship it out and get it returned.

    i bought a tri wing screwdriver off amazon, took the back off my dsl then cleaned it with white spirit and cotton buds. haven't had the problem since and i did it 3/4 of a year ago.
