    Hey Guys!
    Recently I played some games on my 2ds and had some fun with the triggers.
    Then my R trigger broke off the Motherboard, taking the most copper-solder pads with it.
    So here is my question: Is there a way of repairing the R button? I dont want to scratch up the complete board to find the traces..
    Could someone help me with this?

    If you have the soldering skills, you should be able to repair it. But if you haven't hacked or done anything to the system, Nintendo can also repair it for you.

    You can buy spare parts on a lot of sites and just take it apart yourself. Might even just be a loose ribbon cable

    if the 2DS is anything like the 3DS, its just a small board with a button on it, and a cable that connects it to your motherboard, in which case you can reseat the button, or get a new board for like $5 and toss it on and connect it back to the motherboard. But hey that's just me assuming these consoles are relatively the same

    I have solder skills, and the Buttons are soldered on the Mainboard.
    My 2ds has cfw, so nintendo is no Option.
