Do you mean you calibrate the screen and you can never accept the changes?

The lower screen in the DS Lite is actually 3 pieces. The lower screen, then the touch screen on top of it and then a clear plastic cover on top of that. If you are very rough with stylus on the clear plastic and leave dents or gouges this will damage the touchscreen.

From your basic description the touch screen needs to be replaced.

My ds lite calibration seems to be off .when i start a game the touchscreen cursor wont move from right of screen but will move up and down .when i calibrate, it does hit the individual boxes. any help plz


The touch screen membrane is made up of two layers one controls the left to right axes and the other the up and down axes with the small ribbon cable in the middle, i cant remember of hand which is which now but you get the gist, there is a fine track going around the surrounds which keep the two together and it somtimes comes slightly unstuck, a quick tip is to run the stylus around the screen applying a bit of pressure somtimes this helps to make the screen more responsive, give it a try and then recalabrate it if you still have the same problem try taking the battery out and reseting the ds and calabrate it. Worst case the touch screen may need replaceing. i hope this helps.

The remotes wont work right and they just slide across the screen. What do i do


the best thing i can come up with is to try recalibrating. as with touch screens if calibration goes out of whack then its rather simple and you only need point and click. otherwise i can see no other solution. please rate.

Wont Clabirate At All Just Keeps On Going Continuously


Chances are, you have your calibration in such a way that your DS wants yout o try again to make sure that your calibrateing it right. Something set it way off probably so small adjustments to star *** back on the right calibration will do well. Hope I helped!

You need a new Touchscreen. FAIRLY EASILY to replace.

My ds screen wont calibrate


try running a toothbrush around the edge of your screen a bit of dirt can throw off the calibration but its more likely that you will have to replace the touch screen. good luck

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.

Calibrating wont work.. i want to reset it


When you turn on the ds, go into settings (the center icon at the bottom), the press the yellow icon. I assume you got to that part.
Now you have to tap the calibration points; as you touch them, they should move to the next point (three altogether). Does that happen?
Next, you should be able to test it at four points. They will turn blue when you touch them. Does that happen?
If there is no response when you do this, your digitizer may be faulty.
The DS will reset to factory if you remove the battery. You need a small phillips screwdriver for that, on the bottom of the DS.

UNABLE TO CALIBRATE TOUCH SCREEN


The only possible fix is to try to clean the edges of the screen in case any particles are trapped between the screen and the case, this can confuse the touch screen.

Do this with a soft toothbrush, it will not damage the screen.

If that doesnt work then in all likelihood the screen is broken, it can be replaced but this is not trivial. There are guides on the internet on how do do this.
