Touch screen is "uncalibrateable"

My nintendo DS touch screen works. but it is not calibrated right. when i go to calibrate it, i touch all the red dots, and at the end when it says to "test" it, on the left side both the top and bottom aren't on the dot. They are about half and inch away, which makes it awfully hard to play certain games. Any advice?

Well, the only thing i can think of is to contact Nitendo and ask them, though i'm not sure thier service is free. Alternatively you can trade it in for a new one or Google this problem

My ds screen wont calibrate


try running a toothbrush around the edge of your screen a bit of dirt can throw off the calibration but its more likely that you will have to replace the touch screen. good luck

Nintendo DS touch screen not working properly


Turn the ds on without a game in it and go to the settings icon (looks like a tiny ds) on the bottom middle of the screen then go to the far right yellow icon and it will re-calibrate the touch screen and let you know if calibration was a success.

Calibrate touch screen


Actually, the red cross's movement is part of the calibration. Continue clicking each individual red cross until you get a confirmation notion notice.

In order to calibrate the touch screen, the DS needs to know where certain areas of the touch screen are relative to the actual display. Basically, you're not really controlling the display. You are interacting with a hidden interface, which is the touch screen. But in order for you to "interact" with what you are seeing, the touch screen is laid across the display.

Nintendo ds calibrating


Hi,
I`ne been working on my dauthers now for a few days.
I have found that in the calibrate screen, if i click the first point (top left), then click the second (bottom right), but instead if clicking the third (middle), i click 4 squares to the right. It puts me in to the test screen....... Now if i play around in the calibration screen, i can ajust where the points of contact happen. I have a feeling that its like a mirror, each one can be turned in different directions, reflecting where to pick up the stylist. If any one finds this help to them, and finds out what excatly what to do...... please, please can you leave a post, expaining what to do
