3DS L&R buttons not working
Posted Dec 18, 2011, 10:18 AM
So as the title said my 3DS L&R buttons are not working. They stopped working 2 days after Mario Kart 7 came out which makes playing the game a little hard. It would be nice to be able to drift and use items. On top of that I can't really play the GBA games that just came out either except for Metroid Fusion and WarioWare.
So does anyone know of a good way to resolve this issue? I have tried using a clean, dry toothbrush to clean out the buttons and that failed. I have a repair set up with Nintendo right now but if I can get this fixed without sending to them that'd be great!

I'm not sure if this will work but I used my old friend Google to look for a fix. This video seems to have alot of comments and likes that is good, but not all got fixed. But you can try this. It seems the only way to get it fully working is sending to Nintendo.

I watched that video before and tried it. The buttons worked for maybe an hour then stopped again. Guess I will just have to send the system to Nintendo tomorrow.

Have you tried blowing into the buttons? I had similar problems before and that usually fixed it for a while, but I wouldn't know of a way to fix it for good unless you want to get it repaired or take it apart to find the problem.

Oh yeah, it is. Don't wanna blow in it too much either because of moisture.
And it seems you ranked up Karazeru!
Well hopefully you can get it fixed soon so you can enjoy MK7. (: I can't wait until I get the game myself but it's gonna take awhile sadly.
I've noticed. That's my second rank up today. I doubt I can get the next one though, Might take a few days as long as I stay active. Who doesn't like active people?

I got about 45 hours into the game right now. I am just about to get theSpoilerbut I am taking a break from that and I am doing all the side quests.
You mean when you get the Sacred Flame? Cause I'm at the part where I'm getting the last part of the song of the hero..
