Well, does the screen turn on and function correctly? If so, then you simply have the touch screen ribbon that is disconnected and if you open the DS you can correctly place the ribbon so the touch screen functions.

If you don't want to take the chance of screwing it up more, then simply sell it on eBay. You will get a good price if you describe the problem. Others who are experienced in this area will buy it, and that money could help you get a new one.

Screen touch


Refer to the trouble shooting at Nintendo. Your screen may not be working due to the game your playing if any. If that's not the case you may need to recalibrate your touch screen.

My daughter has a DS Lite which works fine except the bottom left hand of the touch screen does not recognise the stylus - she has to touch the screen 3 or 4mm away from the actual point to make it work....


you could try to recalibrate the screen but unfortunatly sounds like you will have to replace the touch screen. its a very common problem.

DS Lite bottom touchscreen seems "stuck"


i think you should either get a new ds or tap the touch screen hard. if tapping the touch sreen harder does not work then that means it is time for a new ds.

Cant play any game


Is this the top screen or the bottom screen? The top isn't meant to react to the stylus.

Nintendo DS Lite Touch Screen Fades


You're going to have to send it in for repair. It sounds like it's out of warranty, which is unfortunate.

Touch screen problems


Hi penny_od.....The following excerpts has been extracted from the Nintendo Help Site. If you would like to view the entire document, please click on the URL below....Please update your post of any progress, whether positive or negative so that I may learn from this too.....good luck my friend. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/ds/trouble_screen.jsp#touch ============================================= Touch Screen doesn't respond or is inaccurate when touched * Be sure that you're using only the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS with the stylus. The upper screen is not a touch screen. * Use only licensed Nintendo DS styluses and screen protectors. * Unlicensed screen protectors can lower the sensitivity of the touch screen. If the problem you are experiencing started happening after you attached a screen protector, you may want to remove it. Please note that some screen protectors can leave behind a residue that may be difficult to clean. If you are planning on removing a screen protector that has been placed on your Nintendo DS, click here for tips on cleaning your screens. * If the touch screen is not responding when touched, or the accuracy of the screen is off, you may need to recalibrate the touch screen. Click here for help recalibrating the Touch Screen. * If recalibrating the screen didn't solve the problem (see above step), hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. If there are any visible particles, please follow these steps for cleaning the screen. If the above steps do not solve the problem, your system will need to be repaired. Click here for repair information.
