Question about Nintendo Video Game Consoles

Nintendo ds - the recalibration does not seem to work on the console. It is getting increasingly difficult to play games as the stylus will not work on what you are pointing too. Does anyone have a solution please?

Hmm... you just need to adjust your stylus, straight it up with the point straight down then recalibrate

Touch screen is all over the place on Nintendo DS Console


It may need to be recalibrated. If you already know exactly what I'm talking about, and have already tried, then this sometimes happens with the DS. If not, start your DS without a game in either of the slots. then when you get to the screen where it says pictochat, download play, and all the other stuff, look at the middle of the bottom of the bottom screen. Press the tiny DS there. then touch the recalibrate button. Then touch the things it tells you to touch. All these steps can be done with the buttons, but use the touch screen to recalibrate. Hope this helped.

My DS screen has gone very dim, difficult to play games on as its not very bright. Any ideas how to fix it?


Remove gamecard.
Turn it on and tap the screen.
On the main screen, in the left down corner you will see a sun icon. Taop on it with your stylus to make your screen brighter

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.

Keyboard out of sinc


Have you tried:

1) Going into the settings and recalibrating the screen. You can access the settings by turning on the DS with no game in, and pressing the tiny icon at the bottom of the screen.

2) Cleaning the edge of the screen with a toothbrush - get the bristles right into the gaps around the touchscreen. Bits of dirt, food, get trapped in there and confuse the touchscreen.

If neither of these work then you probably need a replacement screen. You can get these and do it yourself but its very difficult.

Touch screen problems


Hi penny_od.....The following excerpts has been extracted from the Nintendo Help Site. If you would like to view the entire document, please click on the URL below....Please update your post of any progress, whether positive or negative so that I may learn from this too.....good luck my friend. http://www.nintendo.com/consumer/systems/ds/trouble_screen.jsp#touch ============================================= Touch Screen doesn't respond or is inaccurate when touched * Be sure that you're using only the bottom screen of the Nintendo DS with the stylus. The upper screen is not a touch screen. * Use only licensed Nintendo DS styluses and screen protectors. * Unlicensed screen protectors can lower the sensitivity of the touch screen. If the problem you are experiencing started happening after you attached a screen protector, you may want to remove it. Please note that some screen protectors can leave behind a residue that may be difficult to clean. If you are planning on removing a screen protector that has been placed on your Nintendo DS, click here for tips on cleaning your screens. * If the touch screen is not responding when touched, or the accuracy of the screen is off, you may need to recalibrate the touch screen. Click here for help recalibrating the Touch Screen. * If recalibrating the screen didn't solve the problem (see above step), hold the Nintendo DS at an angle so that you can see where the edges of the Touch Screen meet the housing of the system. Look around the entire edge of the Touch Screen for any foreign material (such as crumbs, etc.) that may be wedged in between the Touch Screen and the housing of the DS. Foreign material in this area can cause the Touch Screen to work incorrectly. If there are any visible particles, please follow these steps for cleaning the screen. If the above steps do not solve the problem, your system will need to be repaired. Click here for repair information.
