Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console
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.

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.
