Hi my ds has just encountered a problem it plays games fine via the direction pad but to use the pencil it will not work the touch screen seems to not reconise the touch of the pen.. it was working fine a day ago please have you any ideas as my little girl is distraught..regards Haz.
Can you still turn on your DS ??
If you cant turn it on I may have a solution for you....
For instance when you put your DS on the charger does the Amber LED come on for a Split Second then go out ??
And you cannot turn on your DS??? Then it sounds like you have blown a Fuse. It sounds Terminal but it is not.
To fix a blown Fuse you have to take the Bottom shell apart, Find the F1 or F2 fuse, and do some Soldering.
If these are the symptoms your DS is showing than this is probably your problem.
PS if you are not Comfortable with Soldering your DS, I have Soldered the Fuses on one of my DS's and it works fine.
My Nintendo DS won't charge. I've tried the charger on my friends DS and it worked.I also tried her charger on mine but it didn't work.
i bought a new battery as well but that was flat and it wouldn't charge either. i've taken it to the games shop and they can't do anything because they didn't sell it to me, i also took it to the place i bought it but my warranty has expired so they won't give me a new one. There is no physical damage to the DS, i haven't dropped it, wet it or anything. please, i really like my DS and they don't make the original ones anymore.
What do i do.
Most likely if you have a touch screen cover, it is not on tight enough, or has been somehow damaged, probably by a tap with way too much force. If this solution doesn't work, message and me and I will see what I can do.

Sounds like you should try recaliberating the touch screen. Calibration must be done with a stylus. Please note: Using a unlicsensed screen protector can lower the sensitivity of the screen, making calibration difficult. If the problem you are encountering started happening after installing a screen protector, this may be the cause of the problem. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button. should look like this :
Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button. should look like this:
Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves. You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start If the touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner. Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings. hope this helps
well, first you should see if it needs charging. Then turn on the ds and touch the little ds on the bottom of the screen. Go to the calibrate or the thing that is on the right side of the person. Try thr test and dont stop it until its over. Try touching the screen again but if that doesnt work call nintendo which the number is in the manual or find it at www.nintendo.com. See if that works.
If the touch screen still works then you have the option to calibrate the touch pad via the NDS utility and the stylus.
If you cant recalibrate the touch pad then is very posible for it to be damaged and you shoud consider replacing the pad with a new one as you can find these replacements widely spreaded in the web not so expensive. You can also find guides and videos on how to dissasemble the device and replace the touch pad by yourself taking care at all times to avoid causing a worst damage. You need a thomson screwdriver, usually sold in the same store where you find the pad and some small blade and philips screwdrivers. And a lot of patience...
