    Just checking to see if anyone else has been able to fix it before sending it in for repairs.

    The R button only works if you push it at a certain place with a certain pressure, and I kept pressing it for like 10 minutes and blowing into it seeing if it would fix it, but the problem still exists.

    It only works now if I hold it really hard, and even then I'm lucky to even have it respond.

    Thanks

    I had the same problem. That is why I bought mine at Target (like a walmart, but a little nicer). Returned after 3 weeks of use, with no drops. In fact second one got a broken hinge, returned 2nd time and this time got a black one, no issues yet. month and a half old so far.

    Return it

    Haha, sorry for forgetting to update this thread.

    I returned it a couple of days ago, but this one has 2 pink pixels (assuming they're dead).

    Least I can play Mario Kart again [​IMG]

    The person that helped me from BestBuy was very nice, and quick. I told him what was wrong, he went in the back for a few minutes, came back out and gave me my new DSL [​IMG]

    Yeah, how'd you remember? LOL

    They have one in Richmond, so it's pretty convient for us living in the area, but I was just wondering because Richmond is still like a 30 minute drive from my place, hah.

    Yes, indeed... Now I just have to figure out how to get there, haha... Not quite sure how, exactly.

    All I know is that I see it driving down the highway all the time... And never been in there :S

    Don't you live near Vancouver ? Nintendo has a walk-in repair center, so GO THERE. They just give away DS Lites.
