Nintendo ds touch screen problems....

Can anyone help...I have replaced the outer casing of my Nintendo ds and now for some reason the touchscreen doesn't work. I was very careful with all wires etc and see no reason for it not to work - both screens lite up when switched on but the touchscreen remains inoperable. Is there a reset button? or is it bust?
Many thanks...

Well theres no reset button and it is probably broken. SInce you replaced the outer casing the warrenty probably wont be in effect. What i would do is take it into future shop or where ever you bought it and ask for there advice or you colud phone an nintendo help line if there is one.

Touch screen not working

I am not sure what console this is but I am guessing it is a Nintendo DS. If so then search around on ebay for a replacement touchscreen, they are usually around £4.00 and google "Touchscreen replacement nintendo DS" for instructions of how to do it.

Hope this helps

All 3, your touchscreen is defective and must be replaced. If you can, you can order one at the well known auction site and replace it.

Reseating Touch Screen Ribbon Cables

The cable for the touchscreen is one with 4 conductors that connect directly to the overlay on the face of the LCD. The flat ribbon connector on the main board is quite delicate. The three connectors for the bottom screen are on the right side of the component side of the DS phat board. The touchscreen is labeled P6. On the DS Lite, the connector is closer to the R button.

Good Luck

Touch screen doesn't light up

Your problem is with the LCD behind the touch screen. The bottom scren on your DS is actually two screens. An LCD and a touch screen on top of it. Either your cable has come loose inside the DS or the LCD is possibly bad. This can be fixed.

The other option is that the electronics feeding the LCD have gone bad in which case you might as well buy a new DS. But check the screen first.

If the DS is under a year old you can send it to Nintendo for free repair.
