    My sons ds still works, even after getting water on it you can play games with both screens, the only thing that isn't working is the touch pad part of it. Do you think replacing the the touch pad screen could possibly fix that problem, or could it be more than that?

The screen wiring connector has water in it. You can take it apart and let it air dry by a fan for a couple of day. Don't put a hairdryer on it as it will hurt the board. Slow drying with air.! 50/50 chance it will work. also water could be in the connection for the bottom screen.

Bottom 'touch' screen not working since son dropped console on pavement from car. If I randomly press the screen, it does start up the console, but only the top screen shows anything, so is useless...


Sounds like both your touch screen and bottom LCD screen are broken, but your back light still works. That is good news, because you can simply buy a kit to replace the LCD screen, the touch screen (two separate kits), and repair the console easily.

White Bottom Screen


The bottom screen is fiddly to replace, but easier than the top one lol. Get a cheap screen off Ebay/DealExtreme and DIY - DIY guides are on YouTube. Specialist tool needed is a tri-wing driver.

My son spilled a drink and got his nintendo DS wet , it all works but the bottom touch screen. How do I fix it?


Hello!

You will most likely need a new DS touchscreen.

I recommend that you clean the DS immediately. Even though its working now, the liquid could still damage components overtime if not cleaned immediately

DS touch screen problem


You might have a broken touch screen. Maybe you need a new touch pad to replace the defective one, that is not a difficult repair and the touch pad costs like $10.00 but you have to dismantle your ds to do it. There is needed a triwing and philips screwdriver, a blade or hot air to take out the touch pad from the bottom lcd, and the replacement part.
If you are not confident it is a good idea to take it to a repair technician, in many video game stores they know how to do it.

Nintendo DS touch screen not working properly


Turn the ds on without a game in it and go to the settings icon (looks like a tiny ds) on the bottom middle of the screen then go to the far right yellow icon and it will re-calibrate the touch screen and let you know if calibration was a success.

Ds touch screen


Two choices. One: If your console still has a warranty, then send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search Ebay or another website for replacement touch screens, and buy one. Open up the console, amd replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new touch screen. Then put the console back together.

Cannot write/draw on bottom screen


There is a touch screen which is on top of the LCD screen. You can indeed buy a replacement touch screen, quite cheaply too. Check eBay.

DS Lite Touch Screen does not respond to touch


on the top right hand side of the screen just under the front there are four or five contact pads this is where the touch screen get the info from the touch screen to the ds itself if you have taken the ds apart maybe the pads are slightly out of line this can be fixed by applying light pressure to the pads to make them stick down and get a proper contact
