Might need to re-calibrate your screen. From Nintendo's site.

1 Remove all games from the DS.

2 Turn the system on.

3 Press the A Button when the "Touch the Touch Screen to continue" message appears.

4 When the main menu appears, use the Control Pad to to place the cursor over the Settings Menu Panel at the bottom of the screen, and press the A Button.

5 Use the Control Pad to place the cursor over the orange icon that looks like crosshairs (the right-most icon), and press the A Button.

6 Use the stylus, and tap the red square that appears on the screen. Do this each time the square moves.

* You must touch the red square precisely at each of the three positions, otherwise the test will continue to re-start.
* If the above steps did not help, there is a problem with the system and it will need to be repaired.

7 When complete, four squares will appear, allowing users to test the touch screen sensitivity. (Testing is optional.) Tap the "Confirm" button in the lower-right corner.

8 Wait for the the confirmation message to disappear, then tap "Quit," then "Yes" to exit. The unit will shut down automatically to save the settings.

My ds wont work when i take the pen and click on a gane


In some cases you can damage the screen with the pen clicking to hard also the pen is easy to break with muscle bones. You can try to buy a new one or you can use a light material such as a cotton swab. Replacing a pen with a new pen might be hard but use a light material or a fine material but nothing very sharp or sharp. Gentle just touch the screen.

Ds pen not working on screen


If your stylus pen is not working on the touch screen there could be a couple of reasons. The screen could be heavily scratched , you could have a screen protector that is making it not function properly or your touch screen may have failed. I replace touch screens for $20.00. If you are a do it your selfer you could buy the touch screen off of eBay and you could find how to replace it on the internet. You would need a tri-wing screwdriver,a good set of eyes and patience. Hope this helps.

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!

The bottom screen of the nintendo ds is broken and the colors are "runny" looking...so I can't use the pen or play the game. how to fix, or where can I take it to have it fixed? thanks


Hi.
You can buy new touch screens on Ebay and other web sites (tend to be cheaper on Ebay). You can also download instructions for installing the new screen. I have done it for my son's DS and it is surprisingly easy. You will need a special screwdriver to open up the Ds, but you can buy these - in fact often they come with the screen.

Good luck!

No connection


If the bottom screen was taken out then there would be a loosen or unplugged conductor, maybe only the touchscreen wire is out, you can open the system and plug it back to the jack. If the wire is broken then you need a new touchscreen (not the whole display, just the touch pad, like $9.99 + s&h).

Here is a guide to dismantle an original Nintendo DS: How to dismantle a Nintendo DS.

If yours is the NDS Lite, just find this video in youtube: "Disassembling Nintendo DS Lite"

Good Luck...
