My bottom touch screen no longer reacts to the touch. I'm going to replace the failed part myself, but I'm not sure which part to purchase. There seems tobe the touch screen sensor( the part I think I should buy) and there is the bottom lcd screen part. They both cost the same. Are they the same part, or two different ones? Which one sould I get?

Plug it into the charger first.try calibrating the touch screen. you can get to the calibration menu without touching the touch screen. First, turn off your system. Hold down L+R+X. While holding these buttons down, press the power button. This should take you to the touch screen calibration menu. (See Nintendo 3DS Operation Manual, Page 15) If it doesn't work,you need to replace the bottom screen.
please note that all games dont require the bottom screen
There are two ways that you can get your screen fixed.
Send it to Nintendo for repair
Purchase a replacement touch screen and replace it yourself
If you are still under warranty it is free to send it to Nintendo for repairs.

If you are not under warranty this option may be cheaper as replacement touch screens are only about $4 You can purchase them here. Unfortunately I could not find any videos on replacing your DSi XL. I did however find one one taking apart a DSi here.
If you need any more help feel free to comment.
its in the game or the console because if its the console you can follow the steps below but if its the game you will need to tell me what game it is to help.
follow these steps for console language change
1. turn on the DS (make sure there are no games on any of the slots) 2. touch the small DS looking icon at the bottom of the bottom screen 3. touch the icon that looks like a wrench 4. touch the icon that looks like a globe 5. choose English 6. once the settings are good press B until it tells you the DS is going to shut down press ok. 7. insert the game to play 8. it should be in English now
2. Go to Settings (Little icon on the bottom of the touch screen)
3. Select Pink button
4. Select "GBA Mode" (pink button on the right)
5. Select "Touch screen"
This is mainly affective for GBA games, not DS games unfortunately. If you are really that desperate to play DS games properly, then either hope you can still claim it on warranty and/or buy a brand new DS (maybe even the new DSi).
You could try calibrating the screen. To do this, you must go to the little DS in the center of the screen when you turn the DS on. Then touch the yellow square on the far right. It should give you instructions from that point on. Make sure that your stylus doesn't have a scratch on it! If it has a little nick down the middle, then your screen might not get a clear reading as to what you touched.
I'm not entirely sure what the problem is, but I'm guessing you are having trouble with the touch screen controls. Games like these tend to use the bottom screen (touch screen) almost exclusively. This screen can sense touch over the entire surface and only senses if you touched it or not. Use the packaged styles and tap on the screen like you would with a mouse on a computer. Be sure not to apply more pressure than needed as this can damage the screen over some time.
If all else fails just try taping everything that looks tap able. If it uses the buttons however, its common that the A button accepts a selection and the B button cancels and goes back to a previous menu. The Directional pad on the left being for moving the menu selection. The in game controls will vary, but these days on the DS they most likely use these controls alone unless stated otherwise.
Don't be afraid to try it out and see what does what. Just remember to not use more pressure than needed. Though the DS can handle a bit of punishment thankfully.
I hope this helps out somehow. Good luck with the games and have fun.
It may be that the game is damaged or the DS isn't reading the game card correctly.
This is usually due to dirt or other artifacts on the metal contacts on the bottom back side of the game card. These metal contacts need to touch the metal contacts inside the DS in order for it to read.
It is also common that these get scratched up and harder for some DS machines to read.
Best ways to deal with this is you use a small Q-tip and dust off the contacts on the card. The contacts in the DS can get dirty, but are hard to clean. If you must, I suggest using a can of air to dust it out. A Q-tip would only make things worse as they often break apart and the DS game card contacts are hard to get at without opening the DS itself.
If those fail then there's one final solution. Send the game card to Nintendo for repairs. If it is no longer under warrenty it'll cost you a fee, but they'll repair or replace the card for you.
I'd suggest checking the card in differnt DS machines to see if its just your DS not reading it right or not.
