    Hello,
    I have o3dsxl and i have it for about 2 years and i have also played a lot of smash on it, so that means that it must happen....
    Now, my 3DS Analog Stick is like this:
    Left and Right: Fully Functional
    Up and Down: If i use up and down, it:
    1. Doesnt respond for like 3 seconds and then does the action and stays up or down for a while.
    2. It automatically responds but it stays at the direction i flicked it for like 3-5 seconds.
    To be honest, i live in Iraq but i am in Germany for Holidays and i only have a week so if i send it to Nintendo, there is a slight chance i won't get it back.
    Any ideas to clean up this mess?
    Answers are appreciated. :D
    EDIT: I could buy extra parts, but i have no clue how to replace them :P

    You could find a console/phone/computer repair shop and ask them to fix it?
