I have my girls DSI-XL & even though it turns on & you can get too the selection menu, that's it. No button seems to work other then the Power, L & R buttons that work the camera. I have removed the battery & that was no help, is there a file or app I can boot from the SD or flash card that will auto hard reset or re-install the OS? Or if you have any other suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

Thanks

I would suggest opening the DSi and removing the buttons and putting some tin foil under them or rubbing the metal thingy with alcohol or WD40. I had this issue with L and R Buttons except that I only had to spray alcohol to the sides of the L and R buttons. Don't put too much though.

I'm not sure of anything, but when booting into the DS Splash Screen if I touch the Joypad or A,B, X, Y buttons it boots the OS & that's were it sits. So it recognizes all the hardware except the screen at boot up, then only recognizes the L & R buttons.
I'm puzzled.

    lately I downloaded super mario galaxy for wii, but in the first phase, right in the first cutscene of the game, the game freezes in that part, with the image appearing but completely frozen. I already had this problem with pikmin 2 but in the end I couldn't fix the problem. Has anyone had this problem, and if so, did you find a solution?
