Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

Touch Screen not sensitive

Hy, I'v buyed NDS lite few days ago. Had not played any games yet, but testet pictochat. It appears that the touchscreen is very unresponsive. If I try to draw a line for example, I must press the stylus relay hard, or I get dotted line (I mean that I move my stylus without lifting it from touchscreen but the line breaks in some points, then appears again then breaks again etc. see the picture below). Only if I push realy hard, the line will not break (I must hold stylus very low, or else the stylus himself bends and I still get dotted line).
I don't use any screen protector, the screen is perfectly clean, and I tried to calibrate screen. Is there any solution for this? Or maybe this it normal behavior of NDS?

Can a DS and a DS light talk to each other? I have a DS and want to buy a DS light for my son. Do they talk to eachother, or do I need to find another DS? Thanks!!!

Hi, an old style DS and newer DS Lite are both compatible with each other. They will be able to play the same games, go on pictochat wirelessly with each other and also play each other wirelessly with games that support it, for example Mario Kart.

Hope this helps

Turn on DS Lite, goes to health page, then to calendar/clock page, then to Pictochat automatically. then it picks a room and you can't get out and can't navigate the DS at all. Help, please.

Chances are your touch screen is faulty.
If you have warranty then send it in, if not you can try and repair it yourself, its pretty easy to do.

Buy yourself a new touch screen (I use ebay at around £3-£4 per screen), take apart your Ds lite, open the respective flexi-cable connectors, remove the flexi-cables from the motherboard, CAREFULLY peel the touch screen away from the bottom screen, peel off the surround, place it onto the new touch screen, attatch the new touch screen to the bottom screen, reverse the dismantling process and with any luck you have sorted out the problem.

Hope this helps.

My NDS lite power cannot be turned on and turns off randomly

The problem is that your son dropped it. This damages both the inside and outside of the DS. I would suggest contacting your nearest video game store to see if they can fix it.

DS touchscreen too sensitive/prone to favoring one side

Ok, Here is your solution then. I don't like to work on systems that have already been opened but I will help you out. it seems to me that you have a weak spot in your touch screen. I have many brand new touch screens in stock and it will take me about 30 mins to replace it. You can ship it to me with a check/money order for $25 and I will replace the screen for you. I'll test it to make sure it absolutely works 110% and I'll pay for the return shipping to you. I know you may be skiddish of getting your DS stolen from you due to scam artists and such. I assure you that this is not a scam, simply a business transaction. I am willing to take pictures of my in stock parts and give you my drivers license number if needed to prove that I am reliable. I get people on the internet all the time wanting them fixed but never ship them due to skepticism. I hope that you understand where I am comeing from and that I have not lost you with the length of this comment.

Movie doesn't play on NDS top screen

Dear person,
Maybe you should get a new DS.When the screen goes blank that means it's old and wants to be left alone.

No connection

If the bottom screen was taken out then there would be a loosen or unplugged conductor, maybe only the touchscreen wire is out, you can open the system and plug it back to the jack. If the wire is broken then you need a new touchscreen (not the whole display, just the touch pad, like $9.99 + s&h).

Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS: How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

Good Luck...

DS Lite Touch Screen does not respond to touch

on the top right hand side of the screen just under the front there are four or five contact pads this is where the touch screen get the info from the touch screen to the ds itself if you have taken the ds apart maybe the pads are slightly out of line this can be fixed by applying light pressure to the pads to make them stick down and get a proper contact
