Re: bottom screen scratches

I think you can buy a polish kind of stuff at best buy or a store like it that fixes the scratchs. Ask a person for help though, I'm not 100 percent sure of it.

Have a wonderful day!

Ds pen not working on screen

If your stylus pen is not working on the touch screen there could be a couple of reasons. The screen could be heavily scratched , you could have a screen protector that is making it not function properly or your touch screen may have failed. I replace touch screens for $20.00. If you are a do it your selfer you could buy the touch screen off of eBay and you could find how to replace it on the internet. You would need a tri-wing screwdriver,a good set of eyes and patience. Hope this helps.

Stylus scratching the screen

I would suggest going to a local store and purchasing a screen protector along with a new stylist. Doing that will make sure that you can't scratch your screen.

My DS lite has really bad scratches on the touch screen. I bought a new touch screen off ebay, but when i went to replace it, I found that all I needed was a little panel that sits on top of the tough...

yeah they should come with screen protectors.. =( I scratched mine to hell before i realized what a screen protector was, and ended up trading it in at gamestop and buying a new one. I know it's not an answer to what you're looking for, but that's what i did.. =(

Nintendo DS touch screen problem

There are trade in for new DS Lite or DSi at some Gamestops and EB games. I suggest getting a screen protector, you can pick them up cheap at Walmart with a new stylus so it wont scratch anymore. Some games have regular control options like Super Mario DS. I wouldn't suggest just replacing the screen (costs more than the price of the ds).

Badly scratched bottonm screen-

The bottom screen of the DS Lite is made up of 3 parts. The LCD Screen which provides the pixel images you see. The Touch Screen which basically is a piece of plastic that sits on top of the LCD portion picking up the touches from your stylus. And a protective shield layer, to protect from scratches. They are all glued together so unless you are looking, you would just think they were one screen.

If its just scratched up, you really only would need to replace the protective cover, because the Touch Screen and LCD Screen should be unscathed beneath it. However, if for some reason, you don't have that protective cover, or you just want to replace the screen anyway, you have options. You can buy the Touch Screen alone (attaching it onto the already owned LCD screen), or with a new LCD screen attached. As far as the protective layer, I haven't done enough research to know if you can buy them or not, but they do sell plenty of different kinds of screen covers that you can just stick on, which I am sure would be a fine substitute. My price estimate for the Touch and LCD Screens together would be anywhere from $5 to $20.

If you decide to replace the entire screen, I urge you to know exactly what you are getting into. Follow guides, know the parts, and have the tools you need. When opening up a device like this a lot can go wrong that you were not counting on, so take care.
When I fixed my own DS Lite, I found that it was very helpful to watch demonstration videos ahead of time, so I knew the steps, and when actually working on it, making sure I had guide available.

Here are some videos and guides you can look at to make sure you know what the project entails, as well as how to go about it: <-- This is more for just extra reference pictures

There are probably better guides out there so do some research on your own as well.
I hope that helps.

DS Lite bottom touchscreen seems "stuck"

i think you should either get a new ds or tap the touch screen hard. if tapping the touch sreen harder does not work then that means it is time for a new ds.

Scratched bottom screen

If you look on the web, you can find a product that will restore the screen to its origional look by reducing and filling the scratches. Then, get another screen protector.

Nintendo DS behaving erratically-Screen malfunction????

Normally replacing the touch screen will fix these types of problems. Please note that there are two screens on the bottom and not just one. You have the touch screen and under that you have an LCD screen just like the LCD on the top. You will have to remove the touch screen from the LCD as it has double sided foam tape holding them together. Also, the small clip that holds the ribbon cable to the board is easily broken, so be careful with it. If you break it you will not be able to get the ribbon cable to stay in and the touch screen will no longer work and your DS will likely not stay on.
