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.

I just got this ds lite and when you touch the left side of the touch it shows you are touching the middle of the screen. This is the 2nd ds that gave me this problem.

try recalibrating your touch screen.
go to the screen with the clock and calendar.
at the very bottom of the touch screen is a DS icon, select it.
next you'll get a screen with: a wrench, clock/calendar, person,a cross hair with a small square in the middle.
select the the cross hair with a small square in the middle.
the DSLite will walk you through recalibrating your touch screen.

hope this helps :D
please rate solution

Ds lite

sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

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 Lite Touch Screen Fades

You're going to have to send it in for repair. It sounds like it's out of warranty, which is unfortunate.
