In some cases you can damage the screen with the pen clicking to hard also the pen is easy to break with muscle bones. You can try to buy a new one or you can use a light material such as a cotton swab. Replacing a pen with a new pen might be hard but use a light material or a fine material but nothing very sharp or sharp. Gentle just touch the screen.
Remove the battery at the back of the ds to reset it, to do this you will need a small phillipes screw driver, and a small knife to flip the battery out.
When the battery has been removed turn the ds over and and rub your finger quite hard around the far edge of the bottem screen all the way around, do this a few times.
Turn the ds back over and re-insert the battery and the cover. Turn the ds on and set up your name etc, once set up go to the little icon on the bottem of the screen that looks like the ds, then go to the yellow icon on the right to calibrate the touch screen, if all goes well you should now have the touch screen back. Post back if not, you may need to open the ds and check the connector on the logic board.
One time when my dinosoar of a ds was not a dino, I left it plugged in to the wall for a few days. When I went to unplug it and play a game that required the touch screen, it seemed to not know i was touching it. That night I went and bought mario bros. partners in time and played that game (which used buttons and not the screen) until my ds died and I recharged it only for a day and the touch screen worked again.
Another time I went to someones house with 2 little kids and let them play my game. They lost my pen ( and it was a hassel finding a pen small enough to fit in the slot) and started using their fingers. We ate some super buttery popcorn and kept touching the screen with our fingers. The next day the touch screen did not work and my step dad had to use windex 3 times daily for 2 days before it would work.
Make sure you try what I tried a few times. Pretty much any problem you have with the touch screen not responding can be fixed by letting your batteries run out of juice and recharging in a maximum time of 1 day. If this fails you, make sure you are using the bottom screen. You dont know how many people I have met that kept replacing their ds and ended up finding out they were using the wrong screen. Finally, replace the screen, and buttons or just replce the ds or dsi.
Ok I had the smae problem, did trouble shoot with sony who had me reset defualt setting. Then wanted to charge me 149.00 to fix, So I went to you tube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0Pjjnz0AlMk , and the had me turn system off and then on , hold button on PSP3 system down for 3 beaps the light stays red , then take your finger off and hold for 3 beeps the first beep dosen't count. their will be a menu pop up and select menu item 3, and it will tell you your harddrive is corrupt, select restore, I had to do this twice and now my palystation is working and I don't have to pay Sony a dime. Check You tube for issues, I found a lot of great help there. Hope this fixes this for you as well.
First you should try cleaning your lens with a disk cleaner you can buy just about anywhere ... check you games scratches finger prints, ect,, hold the game up yo the light if you can see daylight use a sharpie pen to cover it picture side only. if that does not work.. then your games are too messed up or you have had it a long time and it needs a good cleaning .. also a can of compressed air works for a good blowing out.if all else fails you may need to replace your lens ..if that has to happen i can send you a video on how to do that. hope this helps
