Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

My touchscreen does no work and games don't play right

I bought a used ds lite to replace the one we lost and the touchscreen doesn't work most of the time and I think the B button is stuck. I tried cleaning and calibrating and I couldn't even press B to cancel. I was unable to calibrate the touchscreen. I have been unable to find someone to repair it and not sure if I could replace the touchscreen myself.

The touchscreen replacement isn't too bad if you've got some technical knowledge, about 1 hour and a lot of patience.
I'd get the new touchscreen from a popular web auction site and the replacement is quite straightforward but fiddly, if you can wait for the new touch screen to arrive in the post, have a tri-wing screwdriver and a lot of patience you might as well go for it. Just take great care when replacing the bottom case to line up the power switch (and volume control) with the external plastics so as not to cause any damage as a broken power switch isn't an easy replacement.

SOURCE: my ds lite calibration seems to be off .when i

The touch screen membrane is made up of two layers one controls the left to right axes and the other the up and down axes with the small ribbon cable in the middle, i cant remember of hand which is which now but you get the gist, there is a fine track going around the surrounds which keep the two together and it somtimes comes slightly unstuck, a quick tip is to run the stylus around the screen applying a bit of pressure somtimes this helps to make the screen more responsive, give it a try and then recalabrate it if you still have the same problem try taking the battery out and reseting the ds and calabrate it. Worst case the touch screen may need replaceing. i hope this helps.

Ds does not registar sd card randomly but problem is reocuring more frequently???


SD Card? Do you mean the game slot? Are you using a 3rd party device that allows you to play downloaded games? If so, it could either be the device or the SD Card. For me it was my DS. I used a friends DS with my RS Lite and it worked fine, but mine (after a year of use) stopped working. I don't have a solution unfortunately, but hopefully this helps point you in the right direction.

How to i get to play two players on the Nintendo ds lite


You can play multiplayer games with a Nintendo DS Lite even if you don’t possess a copy of the game. If one of your friends has a multiplayer game card, they can use their Nintendo DS Lite as a host for the game session and you can join the multiplayer game.
jQuery('.intro .thumbnail').each(function(i,e){ jQuery(e).find('img').one('error',function(){ jQuery(e).remove(); }); });
Things You'll Need:
  • Nintendo DS Lite
    Using One Card to Host the Game
  1. Step 1 Look on the game’s packaging for the "Multiplayer" icon. If the game requires only one player to have a copy of the game, the icon will show two DS Lites: a DS Lite with a black screen transmitting waves to a DS Lite with a white screen. Below the two DS Lites is a range of numbers which indicates how many players the game can support.
  2. Step 2 Put the game card in the Nintendo DS Lite that is acting as the host for the multiplayer game session and start it up.
  3. Step 3 Have the other players turn on their systems. They will use the main menu screen to access the "DS Download Play" icon. They need to tap the icon to begin downloading the game information from the host DS Lite.
  4. Step 4 Begin playing when all of the systems have finished downloading the game information from the host.
  5. Multiple Cards for Multiple Players
  6. Step 1 Look at the "Multiplayer" icon. If every player in the game session needs a copy of the game in order to play, the icon will show two DS Lites, both with black screens, transmitting waves toward each other. A range of numbers is under this graphic and indicates how many people can play at one time.
  7. Step 2 Read the game's instruction manual on how to set up the game session. The steps required vary by company and sometimes by title within the same company.

Animal Crossing Wild World keeps freezing or just won't even read


If you bought this game second hand you might be lucky and find that cleaning the contacts on the game will fix it. Other than that if all other games work on your DS then the game is corrupt and will need to be replaced

Touchscreen won't respond


first of all, go to ds settings (if you can) then press the last one at the right. Then, do all the steps. If this does not work then try asking nintendo.

None responsive DS lite screen


Hi,
It sounds like you need a replacement touch screen. They are reasonably simple to replace if you're confident with taking it apart, otherwise you'll need to pay for a repair. You can buy touchscreen on ebay fairly cheaply.

Ds searching for downloads


Replace your touchscreen!
Looks like it is stuck on the location of the 'DS Download Play Icon' So when you turn your DS Lite on it automatically tick on that Icon and your Download starts. No way to turn that off untill you disconnect the touchscreen connector from the systemboard or replace it completely

Succes
