    So a couple days ago, I dropped my Dingoo by accident. I picked it up and everything seemed fine with it. I was playing it later that same day and realized that when I dropped it, I broke the R button. That didn't make me too happy but I could deal with it.

    And now this morning while I was playing it, I forgot the R button didn't work and I pushed it down (kinda hard too because when it worked I had to push it down kinda hard for it to work) and when I pushed down, it went in because the button isn't there anymore, so it just kinda fell in, and when it fell in I think if fucked up the Power button. So now when I play a game, I can go to the soft reset menu or anything because it freezes. So basically, I can't save, I can't change the volume (which means I can't play in school" and it freezes when I try to use soft reset while I am playing a game, so in order to go back to the game list I have to use the hard reset on the whole system.

    I'm about ready to open up the system and try to just remove the R button altogether so maybe it will fix the power button problem.

    Ah that sucks :/. You can get the menu by pressing start+select while playing the game and change the volume from there.

    xD well I can top how you broke yours. I did a barrel roll on the ground, and my screen became a splash of reds and greens, and hues of purples and yellows, and to top it all off: a black void in the middle... [​IMG]

    I don't think NeSchn is spoiled like you. Remember iFish money doesn't grow on trees.

    Good luck trying to fix it. If it's broken though, get a Pandora next.

    I don't have the money to buy a Pandora, I got the Dingoo because it was pretty cheap and I like it [​IMG]

    When I get back tonight though I am going to open it up and take out the R button though, I hope I don't screw anything up.

    Well, I wasn't really thinking about it, but I have learned my lesson: Take any electronics out of you pockets before any physical activity. [​IMG]
