The right direction on my dpad is broken. At first, it was stuck (it wasn't physically stuck, it was just that the dpad seemed to go back to normal and it still thought I was pressing right) and now it doesn't work at all. I have a 5 year old black ds lite, so it's definitely not covered under the warranty. When I press it, it sounds different then the other directions. When I press the working directions, it makes a soft "clicking" noise when I press it down. When I press the broken right direction, it goes down fine, but it makes a loud clicking sound when the dpad is released (this doesn't happen with the working directions) Perhaps somebody who has taken a ds lite apart before has some advice. EDIT: This problem has been solved. I opened up the ds and saw some of the black stuff from the rubber pads had rubbed off onto the gold sensors. I cleaned that off with isopropanol and a qtip and replaced the rubber pads with ones I bought online. Everything works fine and the buttons feel much smoother with the new pads.
