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.

The touch screen isn't responding very well, sometimes it will react to a tap but mostly the screen is non responsive, the keys work ok when scrolling on a menu screen. any ideas?


first try to calibrate the touch screen.Take all games out turn on then go to the very small ds on the bottom touch screen. If you can't touch it move it with the cross down then hit a. Then select the option all the way to the right it looks like cross hairs that's the calibration screen fallow instructions. If that doesn't fix it it could be a broken screen or a loose ribbon.

Nintendo DS touch screen not working properly


Turn the ds on without a game in it and go to the settings icon (looks like a tiny ds) on the bottom middle of the screen then go to the far right yellow icon and it will re-calibrate the touch screen and let you know if calibration was a success.

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
