Did you ever get your touchscreen to work again for your DS?

I also replaced my shell and screens and now my touchscreen doesn't respond. Did you replace it with a new one, or did you find a way to fix it?

I am replacing the shell on my ds lite and when after puting it back together the touch screen lights and works the the touch pad doesnt respond


It sounds like when you replaced the shell, you may have not reconnected the touch screen's membrane sensor. I'd open the system back up and make sure there aren't any loose or disconnected wires.

Replaced the shell and now the touch screen isn't responding!


I have actually done this same thing attempting to repair my old gray DS. Had to replace the screen to screen cable and touch pad, but that is another matter.

When the DS screen to screen cables are out of place, the DS will act exactly like this. The screens will flash once and the DS won't even attempt a charge. This is a safety feature of sorts in the DS design to prevent a possible short.
I'm assuming you had to remove the screen to screen communication cable when replacing the shells so you most likely didn't put the cable in all the way into the correct ports.
Sometimes even if they are off just a bit the machien just won't use it and act like its outright dead.

Best thing to do is to go back and reinsert the cables again.
There should be a small line on the board just under where the cable should be. You need to try and aling the cable with this line as best as you can.
Push the cable as far back into the port as you can without forcing it in. You should never need to use much force at all.

Press the plastic tab down and lock the cable in place with the port and do the same with the second one.

Once thats done, plug it in and turn it on.
It should normally go into the settings as these are usually erased when the battery is removed.

If it continues the odd dead like behavior. Simply attempt the precedure over again until you ahve it right.
Commonly you may see odd colorisation and the like if the cable is in enough but not in just right.

Take your time with it and be paient. Its not always easy but isn't too hard once you figure it out on your own.

The same info should help with other cable problems like this aswell.

Good luck with the rerpairs.

I replaced my DS Lite Touch Screen and now it doesn't respond.


Im really bad at describing things but I hope this helps xD

Please don't for the love of pete go buy another screen.You will only have the same problem like 50 times over.

Since the touch screen isn't working use the rrow keys and the "A" button to selct everything

Take the game out of the DS and turn it back on. Go to the options menu when the DS is on the main Screen(If you dunno what the menu icon is it's at the bottom of the screen about the centre.. the icon is a cute mini DS)


Once you are on the options menu go to the yellow screen and select it ... This is where you calibrate your DS.. i.e make the touch screen work again in most cases.

You should probably calibrate the screen weekly cause the DS is lazy and doesn't remember where the touch sensors are ..


I hope I've helped you and Good Luck xD

Ds lite


sorry to say that your top screen needs completely replacing if it is doing as described!!
the bottom screen and the touch screen are seperate, jus mounted on top of each other, so if the picture works on the bottom then the bottom screen is fine just the touch screen is broken. again i think if the cables/ribbons are in correctly and it isn't responding then it will need replacing!!

Touch screen wont respond


double check that both cable/ribbons are connected properly to the motherboard, the small thin ribbon which curls over the top of the motherboard is the one which powers and reads the touch screen so double check this!!
if this is all in fine then im sorry to say your touch screen is broken and will need replacing!

DS Lite bottom touchscreen seems "stuck"


i think you should either get a new ds or tap the touch screen hard. if tapping the touch sreen harder does not work then that means it is time for a new ds.

All 3, your touchscreen is defective and must be replaced. If you can, you can order one at the well known auction site and replace it.

DS Lite Touch Screen does not respond to touch


on the top right hand side of the screen just under the front there are four or five contact pads this is where the touch screen get the info from the touch screen to the ds itself if you have taken the ds apart maybe the pads are slightly out of line this can be fixed by applying light pressure to the pads to make them stick down and get a proper contact
