Well, back when the original DS came out, in an uncharacteristic move, I decided to become an early adopter, and while I still don't regret that decision, it has recently put me in quite a predicament. After years of use, I'm afraid my "R" button has finally given up the ghost. The spring still works, but no matter how one presses the button now, the system will never detect it. Not wishing to shell out the cash for a new system, but not willing to pay the $80 I've heard an official repair job by the big N will cost, I'm looking to repair it myself. Now, while if I had a DS Lite, that would be easy enough, I've had a real time or two trying to track down information on how to replace a DS Phat shoulder button, or even if the part I would need is still sold. If anyone here has ANY information that could help me repair my old machine, I would be incredibly grateful for any advice I can get.
