Hi. The touch screen on my wee girls touch screen has stopped working. Can I fix this myself or can do I need to send away?


You can try sorting the problem yourself before you decide to send it in to Nintendo.

Most DS touch screens stop working if there is dust, hair, sand etc gets under the frame of the DS. They stop working because the particles get pushed down on the touch scream making the DS think that screens already been touched and won't respond.

Get a toothbrush with straight bristles and with your thumb gently press down the touch screen along the frame, use the touch brush to clean under the frame but be vary careful not to press down too much as you could cause damage to DS.

If the screen still doesn't work then you'll have to send it in for repair.

Hope this helps.

How do I use the built in microphone on my ds

You just make noise in or near it. The mic should be between the top and touch screens. There's no on or off switch for the mic.

My touch pad worked fine last night, but now it doesn't! Help!

well, first you should see if it needs charging. Then turn on the ds and touch the little ds on the bottom of the screen. Go to the calibrate or the thing that is on the right side of the person. Try thr test and dont stop it until its over. Try touching the screen again but if that doesnt work call nintendo which the number is in the manual or find it at See if that works.

I`ve had my ds for about 3 yrs now, and my mic

you can fix it just replace it but it means nearly completely stripping down your ds as the mic is fitted in the top part and plugs into the motherboard in the bottom part.

A Problem Wiht My DS Lite System

Try resetting the Ds lite by taking the battery out for a few minutes then try the mic again.

If this fails the mic has blown and needs to be replaced. This involves taking the unit apart and installing the new mic and cable from it's location in the top screen to the port in the motherboard in the bottom screen.

If you are not handy at repairs i would suggest bringing it to a local repair shop as it is a relatively cheap repair to fix (€20 approx).

My Nintendo microphone

My Nintendo ds lite also would not respond to voices. I have brain age 2 and Zelda. In the Zelda options there is a mic test. This will show a graph bar that measures your voice. Well the mic was not working at all for either game. I simply took out the battery and held the power slide for a couple seconds. Amazingly the mic works now for both games. I do not know if moving the power slide is significant, but on computers to de-static them you remove all power sources(battery and ac adapter) and hold the power button for 10 seconds.
