wallydog1, sounds to me like your D-pad is the culprit. Disassemble your DSi until you can get to the rubber pads that are underneath the button. Male sure that they are clean, not folded over or otherwise cracked. Clean all the contacts as well as the pads with some isopropyl alcohol. disassembling the DSi till you can get to the rubber pads below the buttons on the deck. Make sure the rubber underneath the D pad is in good order, that it is moving freely and that no parts of it are sticking into place. Clean the contacts on the motherboard that the rubber hits with Isopropyl Alcohol. Use this guide to work on it. step 15 shows your the D-pas as well as the rubber pads. Hope this helps, good luck.
