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.

I had bought the one year plan for my sons ds . the bottom screen will not do anything when you touch it, also in has a hard time reading games. what do i do?


the problem is that the ds is defective what you need to do is see how much a new ds cost that your son would want then get a quote on how much it would take to fix it from: A) Nintendo B) Where you bought it from C) 3rd parties (i.e http://www.nintendorepairs.com/index.html or go to craigslist and search for ds repair)
then if you need to decide what to do from there hope i helped

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

Best if you call Nintendo to fix it,though I think they might charge you money and I'm not really sure whats the amount.but its best to just call nintendo than to buy another one.

Nintendo ds touch screen


i had the same problem and have now fixed it succesfully the touch screen works like a grid and is overlayed onto an lcd screen so that when you touch the screen it makes a conection within the grid so that the machine knows where you are touching .....if one of these grids are broken you will never calibrate your screen as the ds doesnt recognise what you are touching .....in short the answer is to replace your touch screen
