Does anyone know why this is happening? I have been treating my 3DS fairly well, and rarely even use the dpad at all. The D-pad seems to only have problems with the right direction key. It happens only during initial boot after not playing my 3DS for awhile. It takes about 4-5 presses on that key to get its responsiveness back and work as if it was normal. It also makes a louder "clicking" sound compared to all the other keys, and after "warming it up", the sound gets back to normal. This doesn't seem to be caused by the 3DS booting up, but it happens solely on how long I haven't used my 3DS. It is a problem that doesn't reoccur until it use not used for a certain amount of time.
