Re: touchscreen

I'm not entirely sure what that could mean. Perhaps if you took a picture of it for us?

I had read somewhere and even seen a video of it that there was a certain spot on the touch screen where you could tap it to access the WiFi settings without having to do so in-game. But I don't believe that it was in the right corner. I'm pretty sure it was on the left side in a corner.

I also believe that was a feature of the Japanese versions.

If you have a picture of it, that will tell me a lot more.

Ds lite dropped while open, touchscreen now white.

With white screens it usually the LCD that went out, since D.S. do not have a reset button, the only way to reset it to Factory settings would be to remove that battery, and you would need to remove the little screws on the back. I would leave that last. However if you guys have had this DS for less than a year i would contact Nintendo, or go to the website
because you would still be under the one year Manufactures warranty. I would highly recommend to not state it was dropped. Just that the screen went blank all of a sudden. Touch screen works fine. Make sure there is no physical damage though, as that usually voids warranty. I had to do that for my Wii. No cost to me since under one year. If its been longer then the year then you could do the hard reset by removing the batter for a few mins.
Good Luck!

White line on touch screen

A white line cannot be the Touchscreen. It must be the LCD screen under it. Could be a defective screen.

Nintendo ds NEED HELP

My DS touch screen is very light. If you turn look at a particular angle you can still see what is shown on the screen, but other than that, the screen looks white. I have already changed the touch pad and that was not the problem. Any assistance would be appreciated.
