Question about Nintendo DS Lite Console

1 Answer

I have had a nintendo dsi for about ten months. It has worked perfectley fine, but just recently, I noticed the touch screen flashes for a second every ten minutes or so. Also, sometimes when I turn it on, it has changed its date and time all by itself. I was thinking it might have something to do with the fact that I cleaned the device recently, because this problem didn't occur until then. Do you have a solution? I cannot find anything listed on the nintendo support site.

If the unit is only 10 months old and was purchased new, then it is still under warranty and you should send it into nintendo for repair under warranty.

It will be repaired at no cost under warranty as it sounds like this is a defect.
Thank you,

Screen touch


Refer to the trouble shooting at Nintendo. Your screen may not be working due to the game your playing if any. If that's not the case you may need to recalibrate your touch screen.

Nintendo dsi


If you tap the very top left of the touch screen on startup, you can go into a secret menu to reset the DSI to factory settings, which should fix the issue. This fix will make you lose any downloaded titles you may have however.

Touch screen is not responding and can not play any games.


Perform a recalibration as soon as you notice a problem, to prevent performance errors.

If the calibration problems do not go away you may need to contact Nintendo for technical service or if you think you can replace the screen you self i can give the process to do so...

How to Replace a Nintendo DSi Touch Screen


Finding someone to fix a Nintendo DSi touch screen can be time-consuming and costly. However, with the right tools, you can do it yourself. Even if you've never tried fixing anything until now.

Instructions

things you'll need:

* Tri-wing screwdriver
* Precision Phillips screwdriver
* Precision flathead screwdriver
* New Nintendo DSi touch screen




Turn the Nintendo DSi over and find the five screws on the edges of the bottom. Take each one out with your tri-wing screwdriver. In the center you will find an additional screw that will need to be removed with a precision Phillips screwdriver. This keeps your battery in place.


Take the battery out. Underneath it you will find two screws that must be removed with the tri-wing screwdriver. After both have been taken out, pull up on the bottom casing to access the motherboard. In order to replace a Nintendo DSi touch screen, this will have to be removed.


Detach the right and left buttons in the top corners by pulling up. Underneath each one will be a spring---make sure you don't lose these. Then remove the four screws in the middle of the motherboard with the precision Phillips screwdriver.


Look for the ribbon attached on the bottom left corner of the motherboard. Take a precision flathead screwdriver and pull up on the black bar that connects the ribbon. You should be able to slide it out by pulling back.


Find the two small connectors that are locked in with two tiny clips on each one. Lift up on all four clips to pull out the underlying connectors. Take out the motherboard and turn it upside down. Now you are ready to replace your DSi touch screen.


Detach the Nintendo DSi touch screen with your fingernails. Pull it away from the adhesive, one side at a time. Take the new screen and peel away the protective plastic before replacing it. Line it up where the old touch screen was and reassemble the Nintendo DSi.

Hope it helped...

My dsi camera will not work i formatted my system then i formatted it again right after i noticed my dsi camera wouldnt work what should i do


Make sure your firmware is updated to the most recent version.

If your camera is still not working after the update, please refer to Nintendo's website for warranty repair work.

Hope this helps!

On my dsi when i touch the screen on the bottom it doest detect it also i calibrate it but it doesnt work


The DSi has two screens on the bottom. There is a the LCD display, and then there is the touch screen that is laid over it. If you are getting video but the system is not responding to touch then your touch screen is broken.

You can find kits on the internet to replace just the touch screen. Order one and follow the instructions provided.

My Dsi has a crack that you can only see when it is on


It can be repaired, however it can not be rpaired at home. If you were to send it in it would cost you about the same to buy a used one because this is what Nintendo would consider cosmetic damage. They don't tell you that the screens are one of the first things to break.
