It's actually quite easy...
  1. Turn the DS on without a DS card inserted (or with Auto mode turned off).
  2. Touch the DS icon in the bottom middle of the screen.
  3. Press the far right yellow icon.You will then be taken to the calibrate screen.
  4. Touch the small red squares on the screen as they appear.
  5. Press Confirm amd exit menu.

No touch screen response

Remove the battery at the back of the ds to reset it, to do this you will need a small phillipes screw driver, and a small knife to flip the battery out.

When the battery has been removed turn the ds over and and rub your finger quite hard around the far edge of the bottem screen all the way around, do this a few times.

Turn the ds back over and re-insert the battery and the cover. Turn the ds on and set up your name etc, once set up go to the little icon on the bottem of the screen that looks like the ds, then go to the yellow icon on the right to calibrate the touch screen, if all goes well you should now have the touch screen back.
Post back if not, you may need to open the ds and check the connector on the logic board.

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 out of line (1cm out of where you touch on the screen)

Go to the main menu, then touch the mini DS in the bottom center of the screen. Touch the yellow icon farthest to the right. Follow the instructions from there on out. This is called calibrating your touch screen.

Hope it helps~

Nintendo DS touch screen not working properly

Turn the ds on without a game in it and go to the settings icon (looks like a tiny ds) on the bottom middle of the screen then go to the far right yellow icon and it will re-calibrate the touch screen and let you know if calibration was a success.

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.

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.
