Default Anyway having issues with shoulder buttons?

Haven't posted here in quite a while, but I thought I might as well come back to ask this since I don't really know where else to ask.

Has anyone had issues with their shoulder buttons on their 3DS? My DSi used to have issues where the L and R buttons practically stopped working downright, and I'd have to put my lips around them and blow to get them to work for a little longer, but it seems as if my 3DS' L button is starting to go as well.

I'm not sure what causes this, but I'm guessing it must be something to do with the new L and R buttons Nintendo has been using since the DSi.

My 3DS was bought at launch if it makes a difference.

My DS Lite has this problem as well. I believe it's a connection issue, like dust under the button pad preventing the circuit from being completed. Either keep blowing or send it in for repairs. If at all possible do not open your system unless you REALLY know what you're doing.
