100% sure they are really broken and not just full of dirt? have you tried electrical switch cleaning fluid or a tiny squirt of wd40 fluid in them?

just don't soak them .. then work the switch part a few times to work the fluid in

My L R are foobar too for my DS phat. Opened and cleaned but still no help. Don't work most the time. Except I don't think they are broken, just very very well used.

Just opened your link, I think that's the problem with mine as well, the switches beneath the buttons have became less/ unresponsive.

Give me a pm if you manage to fix yours. Thx.

This may seem weird. And I don't mind if it does. But I've googled up quite a few websites that suggest you to try enclosing the L/R with your lips and blowing it. Worked on mine, sort of (it was in bad condition but nowhere near unplayable).

My friend's DS Lite's L button was messed up and got unresponsive at times, and now mine is doing it, too. Maybe its a technical flaw with them. I just got mine for XMas, plus I registered it on Nintendo's website which extended the warranty, so I plan on sending it in to get it fixed.

DS Phat switches are available from dealextreme.com, they also do DSLite but these are very small and best left to a specialist repairer - buy new switches - having done them I can say they are great and work fine!

    well actually
    a new console won't do anything right now, because the games are still in development, that's why there are few games being released

    it won't make the games finish any faster
