Is it posssible to fix a 3DS R button that's unresponsive occasionaly?

My sister's 3DS has a R button that's unresponsive most of the time.It still works if you press hard enough or sometimes you don't have to press it very hard it's very fickle that way.Is there something I can do like readjust the Button with a screw?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

I have a similar problem, but with the ZL button on my New Nintendo 3DS. My problem is I replaced the L/ZL buttons, but ZL still isn’t working. Could someone please give me an idea of what else I’d need to do? I’d truly appreciate it.

Hey mate, It might just be dust/derbies etc under the R button/on etc, the shoulder trigger button switch which to fix, you simply need to open it up and clean the button and where it sits. Thought, it could also be a faulty shoulder trigger button switch, as it seems Nintendo doesn't exactly put robust ones in. The button looks like this;

and is easy to replace if you are confident opening up the 3DS and replacing it. This tear down should help you in the replacement; Nintendo 3DS Right Shoulder Button Replacement

Hope it helps
