I recently bought a nintendo ds lite replacement touch screen off ebay as my other one was scratched. I cannot figure out how to open up the ds though. I have a screw driver I got with the touch screen. How do you open up the ds?
Try googling ds lite shell replacement or touch screen replacement. There are lots of photo and youtube tutorials around. Look at as ,many as you can to get a feel for it. It's a long, fiddly job for those of us who aren't used to it, but it's not that tricky.

yeah they should come with screen protectors.. =( I scratched mine to hell before i realized what a screen protector was, and ended up trading it in at gamestop and buying a new one. I know it's not an answer to what you're looking for, but that's what i did.. =(
There are trade in for new DS Lite or DSi at some Gamestops and EB games. I suggest getting a screen protector, you can pick them up cheap at Walmart with a new stylus so it wont scratch anymore. Some games have regular control options like Super Mario DS. I wouldn't suggest just replacing the screen (costs more than the price of the ds).
you do know if you have bought the ds from a games shop and had it less than 12 months you can get a free replacement no matter how many scratches or even a free repair, so if you do get a replacement go on ebay and get yourself some touch screen guards/protector, they only cost 99p most of them are free post and packaging, i hope this is of any use
Two choices. One: If your console still has a warranty, send it in to Nintendo for repair. Two: Search on some site like Ebay for replacement touch screens and buy one. Replace the faulty touch screen with the brand new one.
