    I know it's possible to replace the o3ds shoulder button without soldering skills....
    what about 2ds, n3dsxl:shy: and elder dsi:D

    my 2ds's L button won't bounce back....:wacko:
    and dsi R button is dead....:yaynds:

    Have you tried opening the 2ds? I think it's just a flex cable. As for the dsi im pretty sure its soldered onto the board. Ill check right now.

    Just checked my dsi and i see no traces of shoulder buttons on the motherboard. So yes its fixable by replacing the flex cable
