    On my DS Lite, the right button (not the R button, the -> D-Pad button) is getting harder to press because the "sensor" underneath is slightly compressed.

    Is there a way to fix this?

    happened to me once.
    if you don't wont to fix this yourself, send it to nintendo to fix this for you (though it might be expensive like it was for me),
    better fixing this yourself as it would be MUCH cheaper.
    just buy the replacement buttons pad the post above mentioned.

    In your head...
    If you're not confident in opening your DS, just send them to pros.

    I just broke my power switch while opening my DS.

    I found that to prolong the inevitable all you need to do is blow into the small crack. Make a seal around it with your mouth and blow. Blow it right and it'll work for a bit longer.

    Edit: Never mind, didn't read it right. This'll work for the shoulder button though. [​IMG]

    Bleh, yeah. Got to watch out for that power switch. [​IMG]

    But replacing that part is so easy. I am like a professional at working my way around the DS circuit board.

    If you don't want to send it to Nintendo, or open it up yourself, I can always do it for you for free. [​IMG]
