My R button is jammed :(

#1smkorvettePosted 3/1/2013 10:33:21 PM
I'm honestly not even sure how it happened, I've never dropped it or handled it roughly. Heck, I haven't even really used my L/R buttons recently as I've mostly been playing touch screen games.

But today I noticed that my R button is completely jammed and won't move at all, not sure what to do or how to fix it. It's on my SE Zelda 3ds, so I really hope it's nothing serious.

Any advice?

I think happened to me at the beginning of the 3DS's life and it randomly got fixed by itself and never happened again.

The spring of the button has most likely wrapped around itself making it stuck, you need to use some pressure to fix it. Wither pull it or push it hard, but not hard enough to break anything

At least your A button didn't fall off. I would put some pressure on that button.

All okay fixes, but here's what REALLY works:

Blow in the space between the R button and the console itself. Seriously. And hard. What you have is likely a coat of dust blocking the R button from inputting.

Send it into Nintendo. If the system is still under warranty they'll fix it for free.
