Just received a used ds lite from ebay. when I type on the screen it enters the letter next to the one I touched. Is this a serious problem? Never used a DS before; will this have an impact on game...


Sounds like you should try recaliberating the touch screen. Calibration must be done with a stylus. Please note: Using a unlicsensed screen protector can lower the sensitivity of the screen, making calibration difficult. If the problem you are encountering started happening after installing a screen protector, this may be the cause of the problem. Remove all games from the Nintendo DS. Turn the system on by pressing the POWER button. Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears. 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. should look like this :

You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start If the touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner. Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings. hope this helps

Its turning to german and how to fix it


If you mean the DS language is in German, then power on the DS without a game card inserted.
Touch the screen to continue.At the bottom-middle of the touch screen, touch the little DS icon, under the 'Es befindet sich kein Modul im Modulschacht' (There is no Game Pack inserted) message.
At the next screen, touch the Spanner (1st from left) icon. Touch the Globe icon (middle-left). Select 'English' presumably (top-left), or what ever language you want. touch 'A Bestätigen' (bottom right) or press the A button. At the next screen, touch 'B Go back' or press the B button, At the next screen touch 'B Quit' or Press the B button. Touch 'A Yes' or press the A button.

If you mean that a game is in German, then check within the settings of the game, generally you should look for a Globe type symbol, this should give you a menu to select a language from, or look for text such as 'Sprache auswählen'

I hope this is of some help, if not can you be a little bit more specific

Turn the ds on without a game cartridge,touch the screen, the next page should show up where you can enter pictochat, at the very bottem there is a small icon resembling a ds, touch on it with your stylus, it will bring up another four icons, touch the spanner icon it should be the first icon from left, you will now see 3 icons click the one that resembles a circle, then in the next page youll want to choose the one on the top left of the screen, touch it with the stylus and confirm by pressing A, press B to go back through the menus until it asks you to shut down press A to shut down and then turn back on, the ds will now be set to english.

Calibrate touch screen


Actually, the red cross's movement is part of the calibration. Continue clicking each individual red cross until you get a confirmation notion notice.

In order to calibrate the touch screen, the DS needs to know where certain areas of the touch screen are relative to the actual display. Basically, you're not really controlling the display. You are interacting with a hidden interface, which is the touch screen. But in order for you to "interact" with what you are seeing, the touch screen is laid across the display.

Re alligning the stylus


its one of two things
1) there is dirt under the edge of the screen. try to clean it out with a thin piece of card or a fine toothbrush
2) the screen has broken and you will need to repair or replace it. replacing the screen is hard but possible, I have done it once before when this problem happened, it does fix the problem.

there are 2 parts to the screen, the actual LCD itself and the overlay which senses where you are pressing. In this case its the overlay that is broken. It is not expensive to buy, but it is tricky to fit. You may break your DS trying. a google search should bring up videos on how to dismantle the DS.

Good luck!

Left side of the screen not responding


  • Be sure that you're using only the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS Lite with the stylus. The upper screen is not a touch screen.
  • Unlicensed screen protectors can lower the sensitivity of the touch screen. If the problem you are experiencing started happening after you attached a screen protector, you may want to remove it. Please note that some screen protectors can leave behind a residue that may be difficult to clean. If you are planning on removing a screen protector that has been placed on your Nintendo DS Lite
  • If the touch screen is not responding when touched, or the accuracy of the screen is off, you may need to recalibrate the touch screen.
    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.
      • If the touch screen is not responding properly, hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. If there are any visible particles, clean the screen.
      • If the above steps did not help, there is a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.


    7. When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner.

    8. Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.
