    Me too. Been an issue for awhile... now past warranty. 75 bucks to repair? Might as well buy a new one. Tried the fix from Nintendo. No go... nothing apparent under the screen but used the toothbrush anyway.

If you put a protective film over the lower screen, that came in an
accessories pack, remove it. I had same problems and rang
Nintendo they said accessories packs are not authorised by
them.

If your touch screen is scuffed up, the calibration might not work. You can buy a new touch screen, but is a difficult repair.

Chances are, you have your calibration in such a way that your DS wants yout o try again to make sure that your calibrateing it right. Something set it way off probably so small adjustments to star *** back on the right calibration will do well. Hope I helped!

Calibrating wont work.. i want to reset it


When you turn on the ds, go into settings (the center icon at the bottom), the press the yellow icon. I assume you got to that part.
Now you have to tap the calibration points; as you touch them, they should move to the next point (three altogether). Does that happen?
Next, you should be able to test it at four points. They will turn blue when you touch them. Does that happen?
If there is no response when you do this, your digitizer may be faulty.
The DS will reset to factory if you remove the battery. You need a small phillips screwdriver for that, on the bottom of the DS.

My touchscreen does no work and games don't play right


The touchscreen replacement isn't too bad if you've got some technical knowledge, about 1 hour and a lot of patience.
I'd get the new touchscreen from a popular web auction site and the replacement is quite straightforward but fiddly, if you can wait for the new touch screen to arrive in the post, have a tri-wing screwdriver and a lot of patience you might as well go for it. Just take great care when replacing the bottom case to line up the power switch (and volume control) with the external plastics so as not to cause any damage as a broken power switch isn't an easy replacement.

UNABLE TO CALIBRATE TOUCH SCREEN


The only possible fix is to try to clean the edges of the screen in case any particles are trapped between the screen and the case, this can confuse the touch screen.

Do this with a soft toothbrush, it will not damage the screen.

If that doesnt work then in all likelihood the screen is broken, it can be replaced but this is not trivial. There are guides on the internet on how do do this.
