Thing is, what mostly happens is that an area becomes stuck, i.e. permanently pressed. That is why no other (additional) presses are recognised an the touch screen appears nonresponsive. Reasons for this can be deformations of the whole screen cover caused by temperature or small point-like deformations, as caused by impact on sharp things. (Mine was caused by impact (flat on the ground, indoors), but there was a small piece of dirt underneath the screen protector....!)

So the needle trick pushes the screen cover up an "unsticks" this area. Depending on what's wrong with your particular screen, you need to lift either the whole (often slightly oil-as-wasser-ly discoloured in this case) or the single spot (as in my case).

To make a long story short, this "defect" is neither caused by dirt nor solved by removing it. Thus, I really recommend a long, thin but blunt needle (so as to neither scratch the display - be careful, it's just below! - nor the screen cover from the underside)
Also, notice that the screen cover is glued. So don't slide the needle along the underside, but pin in regular distances (it might come off otherwise).
I'd even say (no guarantee, of course) that it is worth doing even if you are still in warranty, as I doubt, somebody will look if the glue was pierced - or that you even can detect such in the first place. It will likely save you money for shipping and time without your phone (provided they do not blame you for it and let you pay for repair).

Hope I could help.

My DSI opens up but does not responds on the touch screen, left and right button and x / y button. but the camera can take pictures

One time when my dinosoar of a ds was not a dino, I left it plugged in to the wall for a few days. When I went to unplug it and play a game that required the touch screen, it seemed to not know i was touching it. That night I went and bought mario bros. partners in time and played that game (which used buttons and not the screen) until my ds died and I recharged it only for a day and the touch screen worked again.

Another time I went to someones house with 2 little kids and let them play my game. They lost my pen ( and it was a hassel finding a pen small enough to fit in the slot) and started using their fingers. We ate some super buttery popcorn and kept touching the screen with our fingers. The next day the touch screen did not work and my step dad had to use windex 3 times daily for 2 days before it would work.

Make sure you try what I tried a few times. Pretty much any problem you have with the touch screen not responding can be fixed by letting your batteries run out of juice and recharging in a maximum time of 1 day. If this fails you, make sure you are using the bottom screen. You dont know how many people I have met that kept replacing their ds and ended up finding out they were using the wrong screen. Finally, replace the screen, and buttons or just replce the ds or dsi.
