    A Miracle!!

    Really these buttons are tiny, the solder pads are under the button so they are virtually impossible to replace, if you are experienced at soldering then I suggest having a go, however if you are not take it somewhere ang get it repaired, as you will only end up destroying the rest of the board

    Agreed they are tiny but you can try it for that price or buy a broken screen/hinge DS and use that mobo from it. Then sell the rest of it as parts and try to recover some of the cost.

    before you buy this make sure that when you snapped the button off you didn't accidentally snap off the solder pad as well as that would make it a lot harder to solder.
