It is very difficult to repair a broken touch screen with out special tools. If you call Nintendo and send it to them, they will most likely be able to repair it.

My daughter spilled water onto the touch screen of her two-day old DS Lite. The screen has obvious water in it and won't read the game card. Can't get it apart because no screwdriver will fit anything! ...


My DS Lite went through the wash one time. Luckily it didn't go through the whole cycle. It didn't work right away, for the next three days actually. But on the third day it did start working. I didn't have any calibration issues on the touch screen, thank god, but the L and R trigger buttons stopped working. Luckily, I only play Pok'emon, so it didn't hinder me too bad. But yeah, just give it time.

Ds lite dropped while open, touchscreen now white.


With white screens it usually the LCD that went out, since D.S. do not have a reset button, the only way to reset it to Factory settings would be to remove that battery, and you would need to remove the little screws on the back. I would leave that last. However if you guys have had this DS for less than a year i would contact Nintendo, or go to the website
because you would still be under the one year Manufactures warranty. I would highly recommend to not state it was dropped. Just that the screen went blank all of a sudden. Touch screen works fine. Make sure there is no physical damage though, as that usually voids warranty. I had to do that for my Wii. No cost to me since under one year. If its been longer then the year then you could do the hard reset by removing the batter for a few mins.
Good Luck!

Touch screen is blank


I am not sure which DS your daughter has. There is the DS original, lite, etc.

You can try recalibrating the touch screen, to do this follow these instructions:

http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/dslite/en_la/recalibrate.jsp

If this does not help, you may need to send your DS in for service. The problem may be something with the hardware where only professionals should be performing maintenance on.

Give a call to Nintendo's 1-800-255-3700 (6 am - 7 pm Pacific, everyday) Customer Service number, or use their web form ( http://www.nintendo.com/corp/contact.jsp ) to contact them, and they can set up the repair process for you.
