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.

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...

Why did you do a barrel roll with it in your pocket? lol

QUOTE(DeMoN @ Dec 5 2009, 01:23 AM) 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

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.
