Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

I replaced my DS Lite Touch Screen and now it doesn't respond.

My DS's touchscreen was inaccurate so I bought a new one on ebay. I Installed it and booted up the DS. It started properly but then when I tried to touch something it didn't work. I also tried putting my old one back in and I had the same problem. PLEASE HELP! If you need more detail just ask.

    I got it to respond when it starts up I can touch the touch screen and it will go to the main menu. But when I try to touch anything it won't work it, I think it may be a problem with the piece of plastic that goes on top of the touch screen. Does anyone know where I can buy one online or what it is actually called?

    The problem is when I try to calibrate it the little square goes around in circles. This is why I bought the new screen. When I first installed the new touch screen it worked fine then I took the thing apart to try and get rid of the scratches on the piece of plastic on top of the touch screen and when I put it back together it didn't work.

    I have already been to both those pages, I tried the things before and
    at the end it just said send to nintendo for repair, but for the price
    they're asking I might as well buy a new DS.

    I narrowed my problem to this, I need a replacement part for this. This is the touch screen digitizer cover like I mentioned before.

Im really bad at describing things but I hope this helps xD

Please don't for the love of pete go buy another screen.You will only have the same problem like 50 times over.

Since the touch screen isn't working use the rrow keys and the "A" button to selct everything

Take the game out of the DS and turn it back on. Go to the options menu when the DS is on the main Screen(If you dunno what the menu icon is it's at the bottom of the screen about the centre.. the icon is a cute mini DS)


Once you are on the options menu go to the yellow screen and select it ... This is where you calibrate your DS.. i.e make the touch screen work again in most cases.

You should probably calibrate the screen weekly cause the DS is lazy and doesn't remember where the touch sensors are ..


I hope I've helped you and Good Luck xD

Touch screen wont respond


double check that both cable/ribbons are connected properly to the motherboard, the small thin ribbon which curls over the top of the motherboard is the one which powers and reads the touch screen so double check this!!
if this is all in fine then im sorry to say your touch screen is broken and will need replacing!

None responsive DS lite screen


Hi,
It sounds like you need a replacement touch screen. They are reasonably simple to replace if you're confident with taking it apart, otherwise you'll need to pay for a repair. You can buy touchscreen on ebay fairly cheaply.

DS Lite Touch Screen does not respond to touch


on the top right hand side of the screen just under the front there are four or five contact pads this is where the touch screen get the info from the touch screen to the ds itself if you have taken the ds apart maybe the pads are slightly out of line this can be fixed by applying light pressure to the pads to make them stick down and get a proper contact
