More than likely its residue built up between the board and contact points under the navigation keys (dirt, debris, dried liquids). Disassemble and clean the circular contacts on the board where the navigation keys sat.

Hi. The touch screen on my wee girls touch screen has stopped working. Can I fix this myself or can do I need to send away?


You can try sorting the problem yourself before you decide to send it in to Nintendo.

Most DS touch screens stop working if there is dust, hair, sand etc gets under the frame of the DS. They stop working because the particles get pushed down on the touch scream making the DS think that screens already been touched and won't respond.

Get a toothbrush with straight bristles and with your thumb gently press down the touch screen along the frame, use the touch brush to clean under the frame but be vary careful not to press down too much as you could cause damage to DS.

If the screen still doesn't work then you'll have to send it in for repair.

Hope this helps.

The casing to my DS is cracked along the hinge. Any suggestions?

That is a very common problem with the DS system, it will not affect the gameplay, Most DS systems if they are opened up to 180 degree (fully open) they tend to stress the hinge and they crack. Nintendo had a ton of complaints reguarding this, and they will not fix due to it not effecting the playabillity of the system.
