My little sis had that problem, something wrong with the circuitry, i took it back to the shop and got a replacement for free, but she had only had it for a month, i suggest you do the same, if you have had it for quite a while find a gaming repair shop, if you cant find one go on console doctor.co.uk you will be able to send it off for repairs but unfortunately everything in life isn't free, i hope i was useful in anyway

I got my DS touch screen all wet and now it doesn't respond to being touched. What do I do so that it responds to being touched now.


Electronics like a Nintendo DS get messed up if you get them all wet (e.g. drop it in a tub full of water). My guess is after you got your DS all wet, your touch screen stopped working.

My only solutions to this problem is:

Visit support.nintendo.com

or call 1-800-255-3700 for Nintendo DS assistance.

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.

First try to recalibrate the screen (start up the DS, and do the following--text from nintendo.com):
  1. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS.

  2. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button.

  3. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

  4. When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button.

  5. Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button.

  6. Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves.

    • You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.
    • Ifthe touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at anangle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet thehousing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screenfor any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged inbetween the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material inthis area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly.
If the screen still does not work, you need to buy a new touchscreen. Many vendors sell these, here's an example:

You will need a good tri-wing screwdriver to do this repair (don't buy a cheap knockoff--they will strip your screws). Try one like this: http://www.play-asia.com/paOS-13-71-1e-49-en-15-tri_wing-70-1fe.html

Then follow the step by step tutorial at:

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

Nintendo DS Lite Touch Screen Fades


You're going to have to send it in for repair. It sounds like it's out of warranty, which is unfortunate.
