When power up the Nintendo, it use to say touch screen to continue (on the touch screen) It no longer says and it is not responding to stylus touch. Went to settings, using key pad and tried to calibrate and it freezes up. Any thoughts?

1. Turn the device OFF. 2. Place your fingertip or the eraser end of a pencil in the top right corner of the touchscreen. 3. Apply pressure in the top right corner of the screen. 4. While pressing down on the screen, power ON the unit and continue pressing on the screen. A message displays
to confirm if you really want to delete all user data? 5. Touch Yes. 6. The unit will now restart. 7. Follow the onscreen prompts to set up the nuvi.
With white screens it usually the LCD that went out, since D.S. do not have a reset button, the only way to reset it to Factory settings would be to remove that battery, and you would need to remove the little screws on the back. I would leave that last. However if you guys have had this DS for less than a year i would contact Nintendo, or go to the website because you would still be under the one year Manufactures warranty. I would highly recommend to not state it was dropped. Just that the screen went blank all of a sudden. Touch screen works fine. Make sure there is no physical damage though, as that usually voids warranty. I had to do that for my Wii. No cost to me since under one year. If its been longer then the year then you could do the hard reset by removing the batter for a few mins. Good Luck!
First try to recalibrate the screen (start up the DS, and do the following--text from nintendo.com):
Remove all games from the Nintendo DS.
Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.
Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.
When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button.
Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button.
Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves.
You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.
Ifthe touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at anangle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet thehousing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screenfor any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged inbetween the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material inthis area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly.
If the screen still does not work, you need to buy a new touchscreen. Many vendors sell these, here's an example:
You will need a good tri-wing screwdriver to do this repair (don't buy a cheap knockoff--they will strip your screws). Try one like this: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-1e-49-en-15-tri_wing-70-1fe.html
Are the batteries fully charged?
when the first screen comes on when you first use the power switch and it says at the bottom to touch the screen. Just push the A button. If your DS still shuts off only when you touch the touch screen let us know.
