    Well... I could send my DSi to Nintendo because of my defective R button but I just got my M3i zero and my DSi screws up on me (I'm going to loose it :hateit

    Is there a good way of fixing it? Because when I blow in it, it does work but for a certain time (like a certain period of gaming then you have to blow again)

    This is annoying especially for COD because i'm lefty and the R button is my way to survive in that game lol

    I had the same issue with mine!
    Mine was broken because R is use to run in football (soccer) games and guess what? I like to run ^^
    I fixed it by quitting football and adjusting the shoulders tru pressure sessions in the play with your music menu. [​IMG]

    You can just make a seal around the buttons with your lips and blow.

    Whatever you do; do not take apart your DSi, that is how I f**ked up mine.
    I got a new one via swap-out at Wal*mart. I said that I lost the receipt and I just got it last month and it stopped working. They swapped it, buncha dumb f**ks at my local Wal*Mart.

    By the way i mentioned in other post but here but I already open my DSi and tried to fix it (sorta failed at it)

    My DSi is fine (i screwed around with the bottom screen voltage but i fixed that already) I dunno how DJ91990 screwed his up (maybe he let out a huge blob of saliva by accident XD)
