Touch screen on ds lite does not work

There are no other problems with the ds lite. I went to the website and it gave directions on how to recalibrate the screen. Does not recalibrate because the touch screen doesn't recognize any touch. Before I send for repair. Is there anything else I can try?

    After reading about others experiences with replacing the screen, I am not confident that I can do it sucessfully. Thanks for the suggestion though.

Touch screen is all over the place on Nintendo DS Console


It may need to be recalibrated. If you already know exactly what I'm talking about, and have already tried, then this sometimes happens with the DS. If not, start your DS without a game in either of the slots. then when you get to the screen where it says pictochat, download play, and all the other stuff, look at the middle of the bottom of the bottom screen. Press the tiny DS there. then touch the recalibrate button. Then touch the things it tells you to touch. All these steps can be done with the buttons, but use the touch screen to recalibrate. Hope this helped.

I just got this ds lite and when you touch the left side of the touch it shows you are touching the middle of the screen. This is the 2nd ds that gave me this problem.


try recalibrating your touch screen.
go to the screen with the clock and calendar.
at the very bottom of the touch screen is a DS icon, select it.
next you'll get a screen with: a wrench, clock/calendar, person,a cross hair with a small square in the middle.
select the the cross hair with a small square in the middle.
the DSLite will walk you through recalibrating your touch screen.

hope this helps :D
please rate solution

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.

Touch screen is blank


I am not sure which DS your daughter has. There is the DS original, lite, etc.

You can try recalibrating the touch screen, to do this follow these instructions:

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/dslite/en_la/recalibrate.jsp

If this does not help, you may need to send your DS in for service. The problem may be something with the hardware where only professionals should be performing maintenance on.

Give a call to Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am - 7 pm Pacific, everyday) Customer Service number, or use their web form ( http://www.nintendo.com/corp/contact.jsp ) to contact them, and they can set up the repair process for you.

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.

Ds lite does not recognise the letter K when using brain training


Recalibrate the touch screen in the DS main setup menu.
If still having problems then you might need a new touch pad for your screen to get it working right again.
Look for repair guides here or using google.com if you intend to repair it yourself as it is not really a difficult repair if you have the right tools (triwing and philips screwdriver) and the parts (ds lite touch pad).
