    Sometimes the L and R buttons on my DS don't work and some times they do ( It's not a game problem it's the DS). It still makes the clicking sound when I press them. Should I take it apart and try to fix it or should I just buy a new DS all together?

    This is probably because you have dirt under your buttons.

    I'd suggest googling, "DS Disassembly guide"

    You might find one on gbatemp.net, so that's good.

    If this is a DS phat I think I have the answer. It's happened to me so many times. What you need to do is turn it upside down tap one of the bumpers and blow in it lots. Seriously it works. They have been known to get a lot of dust caught in there, no need to take it apart. I've never heard of a case like that on the Lite, though, so if it's Lite, then can't help you.
