    Anyone knows how to fix this? One day it worked and the next day it just broke. I can press the button, but it doesn't Respond/Work.
    In shooting games with L you shoot so i can't do that. Does this happen to many people?

    yup
    it happens a lot to people
    theres a quick fix that you can do
    but it might damage your ds
    you put your lips around the L button
    and blow. hard.
    the unresponsiveness should be caused by the dust umm obstructing the connectivity
    you also might need to blow a few times
    if that doesnt work, then you could buy a little screwdriver thing and take apart your ds to fix it

    p.s. this is in the wrong section >.

    Hopefully the DSi will eliminate this problem (I heard it has different shoulder buttons)

    The blowing technique works on and off for me.

    It's my L button on DSL and both sholders on my fat. Its rather annoying.

    Just wanted to point out that using canned air might be a better idea than blowing.

    My L and R buttons have been messed up for a while so I have been using this trick often. However, for the last few months any time I blow into the L button, my top screen gets really weird for a while.(Pixels take longer to appear, color sometimes gets inverted or just fades into a bunch of different shades of a dark gray.) It only happens for a short amount of time and then returns to normal. It might just be result of the moisture from my breath or something, but still thought you guys should know.
