The L Button of Doom
If you have a DS Lite, you probably know what I’m going to talk about. The title probably gave it all away. I’m going to rant about the DS Lite’s flaky L button. I’ve had 2 DS Lites, and both eventually were victims of the L button curse.
What is this curse you ask? Well, I’ll tell you. The DS Lite’s L button tends to stop working if you carry it around in your pocket. You can temporarily remedy the problem by blowing into the gap underneath it, but doing this every time you play your DS is kind of annoying.
Luckily, I have found a solution. I’m going on a month now without having to blow air into my DS. What have I done you may ask? I stuck it in a play-thru zipper case. It still fits in my pocket, and after a few days, I no longer had to blow into the system at all. I’m assuming that whatever dust was getting trapped under the L button now has no way in, and my system is like new again. Yeah. It’s weird. For all you people with a flaky L button, just buy a case and within a week or so you’ll probably never have to risk filling your DS with spit and condensation ever again. Just make sure you’re not using a crappy skin or crystal case, you need to use a zipper case so the dust has no way in. That’s it for today. Oh yeah.
