If your touch screen appears to be working but does not calibrate it can sometimes be something stuck on the screen, including a screen protector. Have a good look and maybe remove a screen protector and put a new one on. Sometimes a bit of dirt get trapped under them. Or a big scratch, which basically means a new touch screen.

Try pushing down lightly with your finger nail along the outside of the screen all the way around a little harder if needed, if that dosent work invest in a new touch screen.

Hi this is a common problem when the lower touch screen (not the lcd behind it is starting to break) the only solution is to replace the touch screen section and reboot the DS. About €15 to do yourself and around €30 for a repair shop.

I'm affraid your touch screen which is mounted above the lower lcd screen is damaged. The only way to fix this is to have a new touch screen fitted. The unit needs opening for this.
I have repaired a large ammount of ds's with this fault. It's very common! Best of luck.

I have the same problem and i figured out what is wrong. One thing is that you have to keep up with you calibrations so like once a week. If you didnt it wont work. Another problem could be your battery. Every time you charge your battery it loses the ability to last as long as you would like. So eventually it takes longer to charge than you have play time. When this happens your screen could get ruined. So you would have to by a new one

My ds lite calibration seems to be off .when i start a game the touchscreen cursor wont move from right of screen but will move up and down .when i calibrate, it does hit the individual boxes. any help plz


The touch screen membrane is made up of two layers one controls the left to right axes and the other the up and down axes with the small ribbon cable in the middle, i cant remember of hand which is which now but you get the gist, there is a fine track going around the surrounds which keep the two together and it somtimes comes slightly unstuck, a quick tip is to run the stylus around the screen applying a bit of pressure somtimes this helps to make the screen more responsive, give it a try and then recalabrate it if you still have the same problem try taking the battery out and reseting the ds and calabrate it. Worst case the touch screen may need replaceing. i hope this helps.

Ds lite not reading game card


you will actually have to physically repair your ds with soldering tools, my suggestion for anyone experiencing this problem, buy a DSi or a new DS Lite. It is already out and better than the DS Lite. Your DS may as well be broken.

What is the difference between nintendo ds and a n.ds lite?can i play brain training on a normal ds


The DS lite is and upgrade from the DS. The lite being slightly smaller has a brighter screen and supposed longer battery life. The Lite and DS share the DS library of games. So yes you can play the brain training on the Lite.
