It might be time for a new one or the ribbon cable has come loose inside the DS. If you are good with tools and electronics you can open it up and see if it has come loose. But if you're not good at this sort of thing I wouldn't recommend that. If it's in warrenty Nintendo will replace it.

When i turn my 3ds on you can see all the top screen but not the bottom screen


Plug it into the charger first.try calibrating the touch screen.
you can get to the calibration menu without touching the touch screen. First, turn off your system. Hold down L+R+X. While holding these buttons down, press the power button. This should take you to the touch screen calibration menu. (See Nintendo 3DS Operation Manual, Page 15)
If it doesn't work,you need to replace the bottom screen.

please note that all games dont require the bottom screen

Nintendo ds touch screen


i had the same problem and have now fixed it succesfully the touch screen works like a grid and is overlayed onto an lcd screen so that when you touch the screen it makes a conection within the grid so that the machine knows where you are touching .....if one of these grids are broken you will never calibrate your screen as the ds doesnt recognise what you are touching .....in short the answer is to replace your touch screen

Just purchased a TTX Tech wireless PS3 controller that comes with a USB key fob that connects to one of the front USB ports of my PS3 console. I have successfully synced it to my PS3 only issue I'm having is how drastically different the configuration is from the usual sixaxis controllers. I noticed between the 2 controllers there are 2 clear differences amongst them. 1 being the trigger buttons are not the same and that the circular circumference for the analog sticks are alittle bit different in size. Basically comparing the size of a 25cent coin to a 5cent coin. I'm assuming because of the analog having less of a left to right and or a up and down travelling distance due to the difference of having a smaller analog circle that it could very well change the sensitivity aspects in the game of choice (COD Black ops 2) but I mean the difference between the two controllers is beyond noticeable I've experimented with lowering the sensitivity level from what was set when using the sixaxis controller compared to when using the TTX Tech controller. For example using the sixaxis I'm set to 13 for my sensitivity but when switching to the TTX Tech to become even close to having the same feel and view while using it in comparison to the sixaxis i have had to lower my sensitivity level to an 11 or a 10 instead of the 13 and yet it still is quite noticeably different from my sixaxis controller. Also I've found that the right analog for the TTX Tech is extremely sensitive gently applying upward downward and also side to side pressure on the analog causes a significantly noticeable jump or jolt that seems to never differ in speed regardless as to what has been set for the sensitivity level in game settings. In a nut shell basically I'm asking if anyone else has noticed these things I'm experiencing and if there may be a configuration manual or program that could some how configure the TTX Tech controller to act more as if it were a sixaxis controller in the aspects of the analog sensitivities and responding timing. Yes of course a new controller with a different shape and or feel will make for a "getting used to it" experience which does generally occur after a time period of using said controller more and more often. I am more or less meaning whether or not the smoothness and or the rythem you would have with one controller be more similar with one another. If anyone is a gamer and has gone from using a normal typical original PS3 controller and unfortunately having it be no longer able to be used to play games and switching to the TTX Tech controller immediately afterwards I'm sure will know exactly what I am trying to explain. Appreciate any insight and or knowledge towards my inquiry. Thank you kindly for the assistance and of course take it easy or take it any way you can get it :)
