Blow into the gaps between the buttons and the consoles, hard. Usually it's a film of dust blocking the input.

yeah mine stopped working a while back.
I read about the blow thing and thought it was stupid. I tried blowing as hard as i could and it didnt work.

then i read that your lips basically need to make a seal around it, like youre kissing it X3

and it worked.

pretty sure it only happens with the original 3ds

If all else fails, try using a can of compressed air.
