Just received a used ds lite from ebay. when I type on the screen it enters the letter next to the one I touched. Is this a serious problem? Never used a DS before; will this have an impact on game...


Sounds like you should try recaliberating the touch screen. Calibration must be done with a stylus. Please note: Using a unlicsensed screen protector can lower the sensitivity of the screen, making calibration difficult. If the problem you are encountering started happening after installing a screen protector, this may be the cause of the problem. 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. should look like this :

    icon_calibrate.gif 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 If the touch screen is not responding properly, 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. When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner. Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings. hope this helps

Its turning to german and how to fix it


If you mean the DS language is in German, then power on the DS without a game card inserted.
Touch the screen to continue.At the bottom-middle of the touch screen, touch the little DS icon, under the 'Es befindet sich kein Modul im Modulschacht' (There is no Game Pack inserted) message.
At the next screen, touch the Spanner (1st from left) icon. Touch the Globe icon (middle-left). Select 'English' presumably (top-left), or what ever language you want. touch 'A Bestätigen' (bottom right) or press the A button. At the next screen, touch 'B Go back' or press the B button, At the next screen touch 'B Quit' or Press the B button. Touch 'A Yes' or press the A button.

If you mean that a game is in German, then check within the settings of the game, generally you should look for a Globe type symbol, this should give you a menu to select a language from, or look for text such as 'Sprache auswählen'

I hope this is of some help, if not can you be a little bit more specific

Doesn't have the directions to touch to begin


It sounds like a system crash. If you take the battery out and reinstall it a few minutes later this will reset the system and should solve the problem.

First try to recalibrate the screen (start up the DS, and do the following--text from nintendo.com):
  1. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS.

  2. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  3. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

  4. 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.

  5. 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.
      icon_calibrate.gif

  6. 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

Then follow the step by step tutorial at:

Left side of the screen not responding


  • Be sure that you're using only the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS Lite with the stylus. The upper screen is not a touch screen.
  • 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 Lite
  • 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.
    1. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS.


    2. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

    3. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

    4. 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.
    5. 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.
    6. 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.
      • If the touch screen is not responding properly, 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, clean the screen.
      • If the above steps did not help, there is a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.


    7. When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner.

    8. Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.

    Clean your battery contacts and DS pins with alcohol.
    If not working then you have a deffective mainboard and need to take your DS to warranty or repair.

    Have you tried just using the Normal DS buttons rather than the touch screen? I don't know how bad your touch screen is calibration is for your AR (mines pretty close to fine), but if you find that the touch-screen is frustrating you too much, just use the normal DS buttons. Sure it will be a bit slower, but it won't be as frustrating.

    User Code


    You may want to print this out because it is long.
    Adding codes
    Adding codes is really pretty simple.
    First Add a System Manager code:
    • Press the 'additional functions' button to the right of the touch screen.
    • Press the 'system settings' button ON the touch screen.
    • Press the 'system manager settings' button on the touch screen.
    • Press the 'system manager' button on the touch screen and then use the touch screen to enter the system manager's name. Press 'done' when you have finished.
    • Press the 'system manager id' button on the touch screen and use the numeric keypad located to the right of the touch screen to create the id.
    • Press the 'system password' button on the touch screen and enter a numeric password for the system manager. YOU SHOULD MAKE A NOTE OF THE SYSTEM MANAGER ID AND PASSWORD, AS THIS WILL BE NEEDED TO CHANGE SETTINGSLATER.
    • Press 'next' on the touch screen.
    • Press 'email address' to add an email address for the system manager.
    • Press 'contact information' to add an extension to reach the system manager at.
    • Press 'ok' to complete the process.
    • Press 'done'.
    Next add user codes:
    • Press the 'additional functions' button
    • Press 'system settings' button on the touch screen.
    • Press 'department id management' on the touch screen.
    • Press the 'on button' on the touch screen.
    • Press the 'store dept. id / password' button on the touch screen.
    • Press 'store' on the touch screen.
    • Press 'department id' on the touch screen and then enter a numeric code using the keypad.
    • If you want additional security you can also set up a password by pressing 'password' on the touch screen and, using the numeric keypad again, enter the password. The password can be left blank if desired.
    • Additionally you can set an impression limit for that user by pressing 'impression limit' on the touch screen.
    • Press 'ok' on the touch screen to add the user.
    • If you wish to limit impressions then you must press the 'limit impress.' Button on the touch screen.
    • If you want to add more users at this time go back to step 6.
    • Press the 'done' button.
    • Press the 'off' button at the bottom of the touch screen next to 'accept jobs with unknown id.
    • Click 'ok' to complete the process and start using the copier or go back to step 5 to add more users.
    After this process users will have to enter a user id to use the machine. At the end of the copying process users should press the 'id' key located at the bottom right of the keypad to logout. The machine will automatically log users out if there has been no activity for a few minutes and this can be changed by pressing 'timer settings' in the additional functions.
    While this seems like a lot it actually doesn't take very long to do. There is a far more elegant set of instructions in the 'reference guide' that came with the machine, which includes pictures, and starts on page 4-2.
