    The most common cause of this sort of thing is dust, see one of the stickies or threads about opening the case up and clean it with a cotton bud and some alcohol.

    Similar thing is happening to me, sometimes it's unresponsive, other times fine. Think it could be because it was in my pocket and got dust and weed and stuff in it.

    I had the same problem (with my 4 day old DSL) only it was the right shoulder button it just seemed really loose and you had to press down hard for it to register in game :\ I took it back yesterday and got a new one but this one feels almost the same :'(

    Although it responds better ingame so maybe I'm just being paranoid [​IMG]

    EDIT:
    Just to be clear the DSL was less than 4 days old and I had never put it in my pocket nor let anyone else touch it. I only noticed it when I was playing Final Fantasy 3 and switched between character in the equipment menu. I compared the click to my DS Phat and notticed that the Phat was alot better. :\

    Sorry for bumping an old topic, but its been happening to my DS Lite for a while now (about 1.5 month). Yeah, I used to put it in my pocket very often so it could be the dust getting inside.

    But could it also be the reason that I dropped it a few times? lol.. I dropped it in a total of 3 times I believe. But I don't think its a hardware problem, because if I press the L button in an abnormal way, it works, it just doesn't feel comfortable. So I don't think it's an internal problem.

    I need to find a store that sells screwdrivers for my DS Lite. Anyone from Canada, Ontario that knows a store that would sell such a thing? I never went around shopping for these things before. [​IMG]

    The L&R shoulder buttons are held in place with a thick pin, its is not screwed in. The button is held by this loose pin that is placed through holes on the top and bottom. Its easy to get loose that is praimary cause of dead buttons i would say, as the L button isnt touching the sensor and going in another direction.
