Nintendo DS - Sticky Button Troubleshooting

What you will need:

  • 1 clean, dry toothbrush (no toothpaste on it)

Troubleshooting Steps:

  1. Turn off the Nintendo DS system. Remove the AC adapter, and any Game Paks.
  2. Turn the system screen-side down..
  3. Using a clean, dry toothbrush, gently and thoroughly scrub the area around the buttons, working the bristles around the sides of the buttons.
  4. Test the system for proper response.
  5. Repeat the process if necessary. If cleaning doesn't solve a sticky button problem, the unit will need to be repaired. We do not advise opening the system or using liquid cleaners at any time.

If the above steps do not solve the problem you are experiencing, please use our convenient repair options.
