    Screen calibration is done by going into the setup (bottom center icon) when you first turn on the DS and choosing the yellow icon. I assume you got to that point in the setup. What actually does not happen there? When you press the red square, does it move to the next spot? There are three calibration points, then four points to confirm it. Can you confirm them? (they turn blue when you touch them).

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.

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!

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

No target appears on the calibration screen


I just got one of these for my 4 yo daughter and had the same problem after 2 days. GOOD NEWS IS IT IS FIXED. The problem was crumbs stuck between the edges of the screen and the frame piece around the edge of the screen. I assume this was creatintg pressure in 2 places at once, confusing the screen/software and not showing a target on the calibration screen.

I used a toothpick to remove the visible crumbs, but if you have a can of compressed air used for computer cleaning, than that might be even a better idea. It seems that screen problems were chronic back in 2004, but no so much now. I learned about this here: http://www.watercoolergames.org/archives/000028.shtml

GOOD LUCK and post back if it works as it is simple and maybe some of the other people with problems have ths same simple issue.

My screen wont calibrate


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.

If you put a protective film over the lower screen, that came in an
accessories pack, remove it. I had same problems and rang
Nintendo they said accessories packs are not authorised by
them.
