I think I've made the L and R issue on my DSi a little worse...

    Well, heres the thing. I used some rubbing alcohol on my R button on my DSi and I think I made things good and a little worse. Well, I noticed it playing Mario Kart DS. Whenever I drift using R, and I let go, of the R, it acts if the R button is still being held down, and doesn't actually let itself go for about 2-3 seconds.

    (Tried calling Nintendo for a replacement, lady said she'd fix it for free for one time only, but then she never sent me my shipping label. >:) What am I to do? [​IMG] My DSi is just going downhill everyday.​

    Edit: And now its pressing R randomly out of the blue without me touching it... >:

    Ask for the replacement again; If they never sent it to you, you can just try again. Also, ask for an email containing a picture of the label. Print it, tape it to a box, ship, and there you go!

    What, when you let go does the actual trigger fling back by the spring?
    When you press in a button it come back up, does it do that?
    If it does that but still holds for 2-3 seconds its the tact switch. Maybe you could open up your dsi and take some pictures?

    When I let go, I hear the spring click.

    And I dont feel comfortable opening my DSi. I never opened any DS system and I can't risk breaking this, because I won't get another one. :L
