No touch screen response

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.

Reply for was the top screen only, I believe, that flashed.

If it was just the top screen, the bottem screen is faulty and will have to be replaced.

Broken d.s.nintendo

You do not want to take the unit apart yourself!!! if you break the power switch off it is very complicated to replace and would need soldiering. I have cases, hinges, and top screens (in case the ribbon cable got messed up) in stock and would be happy to replace them for you. I have many colors so pick whichever you want.
I have been working on these units for a while now and have great success in fixing them.
If you have any questions please feel free to contact me at

Nintendo ds to screen broken

Hi, replacing the original nds upper screen is a fairly straight forward procedure, you need to remove the 4 x small plastic plugs located in the corners of upper screen, then remove the 4 x phillips screws, the top outer back part of the case will seperate and you can gain access to the screen. Firstly remove the small screw holding down the right hand pcboard to gain access to the ribbon connectors, release the larger flat connector by hinging the clip up, slide the ribbon out, underneath you will see a tiny connector, gently ease the small clip back towards the ribbon, prising a little each side at a time, remove the ribbon and then you can prise the screen from the case.
These guys sell the replacement screens prices are very competitive and offer next day delivery!
