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.

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.. =(

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.

The toch screen isnt working

IMPORTANT: it is not a grave or expensive problem but to solve this problem you need to dissasemble the intendo DS lite, so you must get some guidance like youtube videos on how to dissasemble the NDS Lite or other webpages with info on dissasembling the unit.

You also need to buy a replacement touch pad.

You have to carefully open the console, unplug and take out the bottom screen with the sticked touch pad, then carefully with a thin blade or metal you have to take out the glued touchpad from the screen without cracking or scratching the screen, to be able to install the replacement touchpad over the screen.

First take out the battery and charger to avoid short circuits.

Good Luck...

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!

Nintendo ds lite

Two choices. One: If your console still has a warranty, send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search on some site like Ebay for replacement touch screens and buy one. Replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new one.

Cannot write/draw on bottom screen

There is a touch screen which is on top of the LCD screen. You can indeed buy a replacement touch screen, quite cheaply too. Check eBay.
