Re: touchscreen malfunction

Hello Dean, and good evening. I understand the issue you are having and I'm here to help. From the way you said it stopped responding, it sounds like it could have possible froze, or something is internally wrong with it. If it didn't freeze I would contact Nintendo about this problem, and possibly get a refund, or mail it in and receive a new one. Hope this helped! Have a great day!

Regards, Drake

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

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

DS Lite bottom touchscreen seems "stuck"

i think you should either get a new ds or tap the touch screen hard. if tapping the touch sreen harder does not work then that means it is time for a new ds.

Stylus Does Not Match Up With Touch Screen. Has Been Like This For Ages. Sent It Back Once But Did'nt Make A Difference. Could You Maybe Give Us Some Money Back?.

I think your touchscreen must not be calibrated correctly. Turn on your ds without a game and go to the little tiny ds a the bottom. Then click on the yellow orangish icon and it will start calibration. Just touch the marks with the target things to calibrate it.

When you start up your ds, go to ds settings and touch the touch screen calibration. touch the stylus EXACTLY to the target thing. then try the game again.

You'll need a tri-wing screwdriver, a small cross head screwdriver a new touch screen and a lot of patience.

1) Remove the screws from the botom case, 3 tri-wing, 3 cross head and the battery cover and battery.

2) Carefully split the bottom case and remove.

3) Open the clip that clamps the touchscreen cable from the back of the connector with a small screwdriver, just carefully lever up the back edge.

4) Carefully part the botom screen from the touchscreen.

5) Attach the new touchscreen to the bottom screen.

6) Re attach the ribbon cable to the clip.

Ds wet...

hi, this SHOULD be an easy fix. Just set it out to dry somewhere, but seeing how you dont have a screwdriver, this may take a few days, try a hair dryer on low, or a fan.
Have a happy new year

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
