    i just tried raw vs smackdown for the ds and its surprisingly awsome

    to bad I can't play it because my l and r buttons don't work and it says you need to strong grapple and press l to perform a finishing move.

    this is my second ds and i got rid of the last one for this same problem with the l and r butons not working


    I just looked up youtube and a kid says to blow in the l and r button and tap it to fix them

    which worked for the r button and slightly on the l button
    I test it out with comic book ds and the r button works perfectly now but the l button only worked 3 times and I had to press really hard

    hmmm I wonder if i took the ds apart could i fit screen protectors under the l and r buttons to keep from getting lint in them hmmmmmmm

    for now when i hold it in my pocket I'll put it in a sandwhich bag

    hmmm or buy screen protectors and cut them and stick them over the buttons to protect them I think i'll test that out

    what do you guys think?

    any way to bett fix the L button?

    Well,if blowing didn't work,you could always get a new case for your DS.

    I find that getting a piece of paper and putting it under the L or R button and moving around helps a bit,but not always.

    blow into it, shake it, and it should work.
    happens with mine too, but this usually solves it.

    blowing won't help the l button

    I found the disassembling your ds thread so i think i'll open it up and take out the l button and clean it that way

    I'll check out deal xtreme but i was figuring it looked like I just need to undo the back of it

    and pull the button out

    but I guess I'll find out once i track down one of those glasses screw drivers
    at walmart today
