The problem is that the ds is defective what you need to do is see how much a new ds cost that your son would want then get a quote on how much it would take to fix it from: A) Nintendo B) Where you bought it from C) 3rd parties (i.e or go to craigslist and search for ds repair)
then if you need to decide what to do from there hope i helped

Ds touch screen inop

Just from reading your issue I assume you're either prior or current military?

First, see what the return conditions are from the store you bought it from. It could be a defective system.

The stylus has a point that is very sensitive and if used too hard or not taken care of properly could cause it not to work. First thing suggested to fix if you need to throw money at this is to replace the stylus. They are relatively inexpensive.

You may have to send it out. There is a ribbon cable internally that may not be connected properly and/or at all. Do not open this unit yourself as it could void your waranty.

Good luck and please rate my solution accordingly.

Bottom touch screen of DS Lite unresponsive. Been working fine for over a year. Now out of guarantee period. What should I do?

Well, if you've touched the bottom of the screen with anything but the stylus, then that could be why it's unresponsive. I know that "the llama's adventures" has a DS screen repair kit, but it requires a bit of cash, time, and expertise.

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.

Nintendo DS touch screen not working properly

Turn the ds on without a game in it and go to the settings icon (looks like a tiny ds) on the bottom middle of the screen then go to the far right yellow icon and it will re-calibrate the touch screen and let you know if calibration was a success.
