    I just bought a New 3DS XL that is now running A9LH Updated sysnand.
    I noticed that my start button needs much more pressure than the other buttons (and seems less clicky compared to the working select button) during an online Smash session.
    I went through a whole install of A9LH plus post install stuff and loads of other goodies requiring the start button and it worked perfectly fine. It wasn't until I noticed it during smash.

    Any tips? I do not want to return it (I will if I must, but I must wait for 2 weeks until I can get back to playing... I don't wanna do that. I do not want to open it up (No risks of further damage plus I don't have the required screwdriver).

    I DID use a barely moist wipe to clean the system off (It was left out for about 1 hours plus I squeezed most of the liquid when I got it out before leaving it out) since it had some dirty hand grime on the enclosure, mainly on the outside and face buttons.

    Yeah... I still am waiting for transfer period to expire. When I do return, hopefully I can just import from Japan.
