Hi,

Firstly if you havea warranty check if its covered for water damage, if it is send it off for repair. If you are unwilling to DIY then there are plenty of reputable repair services on ebay.

If you wish to repair it yourself then you will need a few tools and a replacement screen. Ebay sell the screens as well as all tools needed.

For a guide of what you will need to do and the tools needed to replace the touchscreen click on my name which will take you to my profile page. From there you will see some guides I have written, you will need the dismantle process one and the touchscreen replacement.

If you require any more help please get back to me and I will do my best to resolve your issue.

Regards,

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?


Hi,

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.

Regards.

R4 card getting stuck at "loading"


it is probably because your sister has a different version of R4. They are the same things, but your sister might have an earlier version than you do. This is because, some versions dont work with some ds lites while others do.

What can I do if my nintendo ds lite is scratched up? My younger sister used a pen to play it and now its scratched. What should I do?


The top surface of the lower ds screen can be replaced very cheaply. It's not the LCD screen, but the "digitizer" or touch screen.
You can get them on ebay for like $5:

If you don't have the know how to replace it yourself, maybe you can order the part and bring it to a repairman.

My daughter spilled water onto the touch screen of her two-day old DS Lite. The screen has obvious water in it and won't read the game card. Can't get it apart because no screwdriver will fit anything! ...


My DS Lite went through the wash one time. Luckily it didn't go through the whole cycle. It didn't work right away, for the next three days actually. But on the third day it did start working. I didn't have any calibration issues on the touch screen, thank god, but the L and R trigger buttons stopped working. Luckily, I only play Pok'emon, so it didn't hinder me too bad. But yeah, just give it time.

Nintendo ds NEED HELP


My DS touch screen is very light. If you turn look at a particular angle you can still see what is shown on the screen, but other than that, the screen looks white. I have already changed the touch pad and that was not the problem. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Thanks
