Touch screen problems

When im using the touch screen, on the left half of the screen, i will draw a line with my stylus but when i do this it does not follow my stylus straight away until it gets to the right half of the screen, then it goes back to normal. i have tried to calibrate it for over 50 minutes but nothing happens.

    i have the same problem, on the right side of the screen, the stylus is pretty accurate, but as i move over to the left side it becomes more innacurate. almost an inch away from the actual position.

    I've had the same problem since I first used the screen calibration. I just recently found out something about it. It doesn't matter if you click cancel, turn off the DS, or press try again, as soon as it leaves the screen where you press the squares to fix it (not to test it), it saves the settings! Now, there's a whole arch on the right side of the screen where I can't press anything and everything else is off by about an inch!

Hi Jenny, I take it when you try re-calibrating it just goes round and round. You can try this, you have nothing to loose as you will probably need to replace the touch screen anyway. Here goes... Turn off the console, open it up and get your stylus, press not to hard though round the colour plastic bezel on outer part of the screen ( not actual screen though)

    Sorry, you may need to do this several times especially at the top as this is where the ribbon cable is , turn on your ds and try calibrating again. If still not working properly you can buy new touch screens from ebay for 2 qiud and will also need a tri wing screwdrive 99p then go on youtube and search videos for replacing touch screen and follow step by step. Enjoyr

Your touch screen may or not be dirty that has happened to me before I got my eye class cloth and wiped the screen for a minute and it worked again. if you do not have a eye class cleaner a game stop or at a game store they sometimes have DS cleaning cloths but almost any soft cloth will work. Other wise you are pressing way to hard on you touch screen.

This is for everybody who cannot re-calibrate their touch screens if it doesn't work on the 1st attempt it never will.I had the same problem and solved it by replacing the touch screen.you can obtain a new one from "e" bay it will come from Hong Kong and is easy to replace if you have a little knowledge in taking things electronic apart.It will also save you the expense and hassle of sending it away for repair trust me it works hope this is of help.

Hi penny_od.....The following excerpts has been extracted from the Nintendo Help Site. If you would like to view the entire document, please click on the URL below....Please update your post of any progress, whether positive or negative so that I may learn from this too.....good luck my friend. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/ds/trouble_screen.jsp#touch ============================================= Touch Screen doesn't respond or is inaccurate when touched * Be sure that you're using only the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS with the stylus. The upper screen is not a touch screen. * Use only licensed Nintendo DS styluses and screen protectors. * Unlicensed screen protectors can lower the sensitivity of the touch screen. If the problem you are experiencing started happening after you attached a screen protector, you may want to remove it. Please note that some screen protectors can leave behind a residue that may be difficult to clean. If you are planning on removing a screen protector that has been placed on your Nintendo DS, click here for tips on cleaning your screens. * If the touch screen is not responding when touched, or the accuracy of the screen is off, you may need to recalibrate the touch screen. Click here for help recalibrating the Touch Screen. * If recalibrating the screen didn't solve the problem (see above step), hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. If there are any visible particles, please follow these steps for cleaning the screen. If the above steps do not solve the problem, your system will need to be repaired. Click here for repair information.

Its saying calibration problem on the screen


When the Reader device is started for the first time or is reset back to factory settings, the screen must be calibrated. The Reader device will display a calibration screen that requires you to touch the stylus to the center of an "X" at several points on the screen. This is to make sure the touch screen properly recognizes input.
The process requires you to touch the "X" in the following locations on the screen:
  • Top left
  • Bottom right
  • Top right
  • Center
If the screen is accidentally touched someplace other than the center of the "X" during calibration, the Reader device will display a message stating Calibration error detected. Please restart calibration process .
If this happens, please start again in the top left corner and touch the stylus to the center of each "X" as it is displayed, being careful not to touch any other part of the screen. After the sequence is completed the Reader device will display Touch Panel calibration completed . Click OK to continue to the next step in the setup process.

Zire 71 digitizer


I have the same problem and discovered that the right side of the screen had "spread". When I draw a line from the left to the right using Note Pad, the line ends up about 1/4 inch above the stylus. What I had to do is touch the stylus about 1/8th of an inch above the center of the digitizer target on the right side.

Touch screen problem


I have seen a similar thing on a 680, and was only fixed by changing the screen. You could try cleaning the touchscreen film with an Isopropyl alcolhol wipe, but I think it's the screen gone bad.
