For starters make sure you have a person of expertise for plan B, i can understand the same thing. even though im 14 i have been doing something similar. ok if the hinge is broken then the wires in the main hinge that links the top screen and bottom screen have collided. or when you have been taking off the casing you may have accidently moved something. ok take it all apart again, if your confident and your middle name is instinct and initative you would probably take a look. if you found the problem or need to result to help always check your manual and guides. If you would like to know try using the DS helpline even though they might have a go at you for taking apart the DS or ask un reasonable questions lets get to the point, ask them about the problem if nothing still occurs best thing to do is plan be as i mentioned at the start. some one of expertise so start poking around for a technition (sorry if i spelled it wrong) who seems to know what he is doing, preferably some one who is in the video games criteria and to shorten it down look for some who knows alot about the nintendo stuff. if plan b still doesnt work then im afraid its time to lose about £100-150 and say sorry to your daughter by getting her a DSi. everyone is happy but your wallet =3

i hope this has helped you in any way possible :3

Touch screen freezes and doesnt give me access to phone


There are known issues with many of the HTC touch screens becoming unresponsive. You can try to clean the perimeter of the screen with a card, etc then wash any oil from the screen...just in case. But a huge number of these have been coming back to the vendors broken, if this is the case you can only contact your provider and hope you can get it replaced/repaired under the warrenty.

Touch screen is blank


I am not sure which DS your daughter has. There is the DS original, lite, etc.

You can try recalibrating the touch screen, to do this follow these instructions:

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/dslite/en_la/recalibrate.jsp

If this does not help, you may need to send your DS in for service. The problem may be something with the hardware where only professionals should be performing maintenance on.

Give a call to Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am - 7 pm Pacific, everyday) Customer Service number, or use their web form ( http://www.nintendo.com/corp/contact.jsp ) to contact them, and they can set up the repair process for you.

Ds touch screen and main screen not working - connectors broken


if you would have sent it to me first I would have replaced the case for you and you wouldn't have had these problems, but I can still help you out. I have a white nintendo DS lite in stock that I had to replace the bottom lcd display in. I will ship to you for $90 and if you are feeling adventurous send me your parts and I will take off $10 since I have no clue what is broken and what is not, but to me it sounds like the bottom lcd, touch screen , and circuit board are trash.
Thanks

Cant play any game


Is this the top screen or the bottom screen? The top isn't meant to react to the stylus.

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.
