The button is for the in-game menu.
You can hire a local electronics repairman to fix it for you if you suspect it's a hardware problem with the button or you can send it back to Krikzz.

any electronic repair man in Toronto? Krikkz will take along time. stone age gamer said it's out of warranty even thou it's only one month from a year since it shipped..
It did this shutter thing with the gba since i got it when booting a game. now this. I bought the thing for Savestats and cheats. Wish they made a physical button like the mega everdrives.
I took the shell out with just the back plate on and tried it that way. the button doesn't work. sigh. How much will krikkz charge for this.

I don't know, you have to ask.

The button is a metal SMT tact switch, something like this

I don't know the exact height of it but I think the electronics repairman can help you with that, perhaps he can get the replacement for you?

sent it in. I hope it wasn't a setting i forgot to tick. I looked in the settings and there isn't much there before i sent it in. I don't think that is the problem. It did feel kinda soft when pressing it. I remember before it was harder and clicking sound when pressed. Whatever i hope they don't charge me to much as it's been 1 month out of warranty.

This kind of switches often, if unused for long time, oxidize contacts.
You can try, before to try repair or to ship it, simply to rapidly press this button (out of Gameboy is prefereable) for a certain amount of time (30 sec-1min) to disoxide contacts.
I often solved in this way.
