    The D-Pad of my DS Lite is not as sensitive as it used to be. Is there anyway to clean it? My warrenty has expired.

    Usually, for a console, I just buy a new controller. But the controller for the DS is in-built so I can't do that.

    The D-Pad on the DS Lite is totaly shit, and will never be better, the build quality simply isn't there. so buy a new console a hope to not get a console like mine where the dpad simply CAN't do diagonals reiably

    It used to work well. But after a year of hacking and smashing... it became less responsive. Any buttons will. How do I repair them?
