Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
I got a nintendo ds lite. I bought it used online with a brain age game. It worked fine for a couple days. While playing brain age, it stopped "obeying" my commands. I thought it was me. I started pushing my selections harder, but nothing. Then I would turn it on, and it wouldn't even let me select what I wanted. It would move from one screen to the other without me touching anything, and even if I did, it wouldn't do anything I selected.
I decided to blame the game. However, now when I turn it on, it makes all the decisions it wants so fast that it's hard to keep up. In the end, it always ends up in pictochat, chatroom 3 or C (third option) pressing number 3 non stopping.
I have turned it off. Left it for weeks (maybe I was using it too much, I thought) and nothing. I really don't know what's wrong. I tried to recalibrate the screen, but it's useless because it won't let me select anything. I can press the "A" button and nothing (any button and nothing).
It doesn't have a screen protector, and the stylus looks fine.
Thank you so much for your help and time!
See if one of the button switches is collapsed, check the "shoulder buttons" also. If any switch is collapsed, it will sense that button as being held down all the time, and may act strangely, including ignoring commands from other inputs or controls. Its possible a bad touch screen could do something similar as well.
Check that all the switches still click and return as they should. If you disassemble unit, you can eliminate the touch screen temporarily by just unplugging the very small ribbon cable to the touch portion of the screen, then see if it still acts up.
