    today i fixed my replaced my LCD screen. luckily it works now (it was cracked). but NOW, the directional buttons and analog stick act erratic. if i press 1 direction, it might go 2 other directions (like when i was playing tekken). and on the internet browser, the arrow keeps going down, and moves up slowwww, like its being pulled by a magnet. how do i fix this?

    I'd like an answer to this as well. Can my local GS fix it?

    Go onto your system information screen (where it has your name and Mac address) and rotate your analog stick around a few times, in a complete circle (I don't think it has to be a specific direction, but I usually go clockwise). If it's the D-pad, just open it back up and make sure everything is seated properly, and your screws are all tightened nicely.

    I would have never thought of that, Bob Saget.
    If I ever have this problem, thanks.

    i fixed it now, all i did was adjust the screws. if they were too tight, the home button would be super sensitive and would activate if i just touched the area around it. if it was too loose, the analog problem would happen. BUT NOW I GOTTA FIND WTF IS WRONG WITH MY TRIANGL BUTTON
